The Coal Pit Poem by James Urwin

The Coal Pit

 


They throw their pick,
at walls of black,
shovel it up...and put it in a sack.

Guided by the flame of light,
working in a darkness...that`s darker than night.

No place for comfort...no place to sit,
Light knows only...the flame that`s lit,
as down more they go...deep within...the dark coal pit.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
In 2013, in England...I know of a few guys that still do mine by hand the old fashioned way, it wont make them rich but it does pay.

No matter how dark they say James but when they see light from their motivated heart they will go everything well...even darkest than a night, inside their heart always bright for something..._Soul
