River Street Urchins


River street urchins,
The gutters are swelling.
[Waiting…] for the sky—you and I
To reach—the storm drains of joy.
Before we go…
Before we let, go.
We too will rain…

River street urchins,
Before we go…
Before we let, go.
We too will rain…
River street urchins…

Paupers oh so giving, don't you know.
We'll queue in the streets
And pray to be free!
Till we go…
Before we let, go.
We too will rain…
On every official bank holiday parade:

Till we're free, till were free
Till were free, till were free
Till were free, to go…
We'll never clear-out:
Absorbing as every stain might be.

I'll fabricate a new colour?
A rainbows pot of gold…
One for just you and me!

    Great poem as always, my favorite
    Sounds like a deal,
    Maybe yes, maybe no
    His heart wants to come back
    But his sanity says no
    Break time
    Vacation, just pay a visit
    Yes or No, i dont know....... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
