Bad Rivers


It is January
and the moon cracks
with frost.
I light a candle
to thaw my thoughts.
They run in bad rivers
and I am caught
in a net of sorrow.

I'll cry tomorrow
when sunrise breaks
slowly
through the dark
to ask questions.

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.
