Pure Dolour - Poem by Richard George

I commend to your attention
the immeasurable sadness
of that huge brown teddy bear
slumped in the window
of its institution;
the wistfulness of rushes
as summer sun cools at five;
the tragedy of casserole
wasted in the pan.
I only mention this because
you have a kind expression.
