A Dark World


He can't see, he is blind
But he has pictured the world in his mind

He did need a guide
A faithful dog to go by his side

He and his dog
Have traveled the world more than you and me
He knows by the feel of his feet, each and every land
And the sound of the seven seas

Such a world for himself
Only he could create
Through the smell and sound
And whatever he could appreciate

It’s a world of nature and peace
A world where war and jealousy cease

It is his world
But why can't it be yours and mine

Why can't we tune our senses
To, know the world so fine

    Only when people's consciences awaken will war and greed cease; but who is to set the example? Thanks for this one. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
