Hobbyist versifier from South Wales, UK

A world away from all the things
That keep us in the world,
I show my heart, now that my wings
I’ve timidly unfurled.

And from that heart I offer you
A prayer, a song, a rhyme,
And hope I stir in your heart too
The sacred and sublime. more »

    (One of our sons lives in Canberra. We've always intended to make it on to NZ one of these days. Now our travel is severely hampered by my health, so we probably won't make it, but my friends and children tell me what a gracious place it is. Cheers!)

Shadow Of Sorrow

Only those in the shadow of sorrow
Know the meaning of real despair
For the darkness so cast on their spirit
Is a darkness found only in there
And a light all the world takes for granted
Is a light by not one of them seen
For the shadow its terrible covering
Is cruelly placed in between.

And the sorriest of souls on the outside
Might a rhythm of sympathy start
And the warmest embrace from a neighbour
Might its message of comfort impart
But the shadow its hold unrelenting
