What I could and could not

I couldn't see, but I could hear...
I couldn't touch, but I could feel...
I couldn't walk, but I traveled...
I couldn't eat, but was never hungry...
I couldn't care, but I could cry...
I could smerk and I could sigh...
But I could never wake,
But would also never die...
I was by myself, but never lonely...
This is what it is like in the dark of the daytime light...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
