Rumour


Shall you converse
in betrayel of my name?
My siblings, too
thought by you,
are adverse.
How counts the evil
of the street
measured with words
and borne by feet?

Follow the echo....

Succoured by ignorance
of a matrix told,
spoken in chance
from a web that's old.

    If I have rightly understood what you wanted to say by this, I must say you have a way with words!
    The last stanza is fabulous! (Report) Reply

    A very clever use of words Sally to describe rumour or gossip if I read it correctly?
    Nice one. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
