Treasure Island

Mary Forrester

Through The Thorns

Through the thorns I see his face
A saviour and my eternal grace
Now from me
He has flown
The feathered nest we adorned
And still I wait, still I wait
Knowing that
I hear the knock upon my door
Ah, it must have been the wind once more
Another day, another night
I sit alone and still I wait.

    This is a wonderful poem.
    'And still I wait, still I wait
    Knowing that
    I hear the knock upon my door
    Ah, it must have been the wind once more'
    These lines touch my heart as I recite them. The thought of one bird patiently waiting, as if in perpetuity, for the other that jointly adorned the nest once but now has flown away to an unknown destination, brings kind of known feelings to my mind. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful Mary - I said to my soul be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing, wait without love for love would be love of the wrong thing......... etc. (read T S Eliot for rest of quote) . (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
