A Lost Coin


A lost coin in the mist of the cloud

Thrown into the shadow of the crowds

Never to be found except in our heart

I lost a friend, a precious one indeed

The mother lost a son, a good son indeed

The school lost a student, a brilliant one indeed

The sibling lost a brother, a kind one indeed

The nation lost a gift, one never to be replaced

The class, lost a mate, one that sooths our hearts

But Pensa lost a leader; a leader of the master's flock

I would have written more, but I have to wipe my tears

I would have said more; but a quivering lip won't allow me

I would have smiled, but a memory of friend won't allow me

Except the Lord has comforted me

That he, my friend is comforted

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
