The Chagra's Slow Whistle - Poem by Terry Dawson

The Chagras slow whistle
Though faint and from afar
Vague memories yet called to mind
Whose detail, like a faded dream,
Is lost to the haze of time
And yet...
They conjure up a sweet melancholy
From an age which has now pressed,
And gone beyond recapture.

    And yet...
    They conjure up a sweet melancholy
    From an age which has now pressed,
    And gone beyond recapture.
    It's simply beautiful.
