The Shore


I walked along the lonely shore
Listening to the sound of waves
A gentle reassuring roar
Which echoed in the nearby caves

I thought of you who are no more
And I smiled at what we once had
Even though the pain is still raw
And I am no longer that lad

I cast my eye on the sea floor
And saw the waves washing the sand
And my spirits began to soar
For thus we would walk hand in hand

That was such a long time ago
That was when we were both so young
When our love had a golden glow
And each to the other we clung

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
