Child Of Yesterday - Poem by Zoe ElsworthMartin

The child that plays
Upon the sands
Of yesterdays soon sorrow

The child that laughs
Within ones heart
Of yesterdays tomorrow

The child that smiles
Upon ones soul
Of yesterdays warm light

Is the child that lives
Within each breath
Of yesterdays delight

    There's something very touching about this piece. Nicely structured too with a musical phrasing reminiscent of William Blake. Good poem. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
