Best Poem of Barry Conway

Life Is A Purse.

LIFE IS A PURSE.


LIFE IS A PURSE.

YOU HOLD THIS PURSE,
FILLED WITH COINS.
AS YOU LIVE THIS LIFE,
YOU TAKE OUT A COIN,
ONE BY ONE,
AND TOSS THEM INTO,
THE VAST OCEAN OF LIFE.

WITH EACH COIN,
WITH EACH TOSS,
YOU WATCH IT SINK,
LOST FOREVER,
IN THE DEEPEST DEPTHS.
YOU HAVE THE MEMORY,
BUT YOU WILL NEVER HAVE,
THE COIN AGAIN.

AS YOUR PURSE LESSENS,
EACH COIN,
BECOMES MORE PRECIOUS,
UNTIL THE PURSE EMPTIES,
AND IT TOO,
IS TOSSED INTO THE OCEAN.

Read the full of Life Is A Purse.

SAY THE WORD
THAT SWEET DELIGHTFUL ONE I'VE HEARD
THAT SENDS ME PLACES QUITE ABSURD
ON FANTASY FLYING ATOP A BIRD
WITH WINGS OUTSTRETCHED FOREVER STIRRED
BY WHISPERS WITHIN A WORLD RESERVED
TO THE ACTS THAT HAVE OCCURRED
