Teardrops At The Bottom Of A Well

Tiny dropp of purity
Small dose of harsh reality
A sign of spirituality
Can be both good and bad

Tiny dropp of shame
Reality of fame
Expression of true pain
Sometimes misunderstood

Tiny dropp of cleansing
A sign the heart is mending
Depression is descending
But hope that yours are good

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,
