Handprints


Empathy punishes my sleep.
Old familiar waters
Flood my soul.
A grandmother’s tears
Flow from this rock of ages;
My heart bleeds
From a prayer garden
Well visited.
They will need my prayers,
The strength and courage
To carry their own cross;
A child’s handprints
Remain in the heart forever.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
