Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,

    Born- lots of people to smiling welcome us
    Death - lots to cry and say farewell by our bed
    This merry go round called life and death
    Will always be an enigma at its best.........

    It seems to me that the most haunting poetry is written when one is feeling completely alone and lonely. (Report) Reply

    For I have hedged me with a thorny hedge,
    I live alone, I look to die alone

    i love this!
    so deep yet subtle to the lips and mind,
    thank you x (Report) Reply

    What a grief stricken heart sighing for summer wind to fly as swallow! Though cold as winter outside yet warm as summer inside! Nice sonnet to read! (Report) Reply

    i like the high of the low,
    but.
    how long do i whant to stay?
    how long do you?
    blind bats flying with friends. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful......Her preference of winter images her loneliness and fear of dying alone. Both are cold and miserable.
    'I am no summer friend, but wintry cold........I live alone, I look to die alone'

poet John Clare

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,
