Heather Burns


Alone


Shadows fade
night creeps in
darkness appears

alone

just a memory
remains.

    Shadows fade
    night creeps in.........Lovely poem....10

    I shall work hard
    Without waiting for word
    That is not my worry
    I shall simply carry

    Wait for second
    And think of water pond
    How many colorful fishes are there?
    Think of yourself as fortunate person here? (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
