Heather Burns


Yesterdays Sorrow


A gentle rain
begins to fall
washing cares
of life away

clearing
darkened skies
from fragments
of yesterday

a new day has
dawned
looking for
tomorrow

releasing
saddened hearts
from yesterdays
sorrows.

    in my own opinion of the poem: a gentle rain begins to fall, a rain of hope, hope to wash away every past sorrow, and hope for better future, when a new day has dawned. its a soft, gentle poem, full of wit..its a 10 for me (Report) Reply

    A great poem, sometimes a new day can be very welcoming, then we can say
    goodbye to a bad yesterday. (Report) Reply

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
