Blindness


oh, tragedy, it is as if in a world of poetry, one cannot rhyme..
as if in a world of musical tune, one cannot sing…
as if in a world of much natural beauty and grace, one cannot see..

although,
not all poetry must rhyme
and one can enjoy music, by listening alone
and one can enjoy the world, by all other senses

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,
