Around The Corner - Poem by Diana Rosser

I wont tell you the stories he has told me,
or the reason why for weeks and months
he couldn't sleep.
About the walk around the corner,
he kept walking round that corner,
walking round that corner
for days and months and weeks.
That isn't my story to tell you, only his;
but I can tell you that he walks around
that corner through his days
and through his weeks.
I can tell you that he marched them home
leading from the front,
right down through the Guildhall
to the sound of thudding drum.
I can tell you that he marched all those
young boys home.
All of them, but one.

    reminds me of a poem i wrote about a shepard who goes
    out searching for a lost sheep.The reason he left the many
    to find the one was perhaps sometime in his past lost himself
    and someone came and found him.
    In your poem the man is still searching for someone but in
    this case will not be found (Report) Reply
