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

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
