Little Boy


Somewhere in another time
A little boy sits on a cliff
It's 5 or 6 and the sun is rising
His body is tired and stiff
He stares at the miles of fields
The orange and red sky
And from his eyes flow childish years
Something in him has just died
He's been sitting there cold and scared
Since the night before
When his dad got far too drunk
And kicked him to the floor
There's nothing I can do for him
I just wish that I could say
Keep your head up little boy
You'll grow up to see better days

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
