Rookie - 30 Points (31/01/1954 / GLASGOW)

The Loner.


The old man sits so all alone
And stares into grey walls of stone
His gaze falls on the wooden floor
That creaks and creeps towards the door
A pensive look, he’s deep in thought
His own company, that’s all he’s got
Sitting upright, legs outstretched
Untouched, the ale, the girl fetched
It sits there still but near to hand
Which he will drink, on his command.

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.
