A Memory - Poem by William Allingham

Four ducks on a pond,
A grass-bank beyond,
A blue sky of spring,
White clouds on the wing;
What a little thing
To remember for years-
To remember with tears!

    Man, since time's beginning, has tried to paint or write about these moments of total peace. How perfectly WA describes that moment in time. (Report) Reply
