Treasure Island

Ruth Walters

(London, U.K.)

Your Stalwart

She's pale now,
her eyes
still sparkle brightly
but she's frail now.

She's wise now
more wise than you may know,
more spirited,
yet low.

Through life's mires
ups and downs
she's struggled
to come through

but though she's pale now,
she'll look beautiful
for you.

    thanks for sharing, Ruth. at the end i wondered if the she in the poem had actually just died (pale now) . but tomorrow she will look beautiful........because of the work of the cosmetologist at the funeral home. honestly i thought of that as one interpretation, and i like it. how about you?
    i'm also sending a private message about this to you. : ]) bri (Report) Reply

    Beautifully penned, This poem speaks of a woman who used to be strong,
    dependable and someone to lean on to, but now that she's aged a lot, even
    weaker physically yet more wiser than before. A lovely poem, definitely she's
    more beautiful than anyone can see. (Report) Reply

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
