A Closed Door


A chapter ends;
the door
closes on the past.

Other roads lie ahead
with all new experiences;
who knows what waits
around the next corner.

But at least
it's her song to sing;
her chance to dance.

With no more clouds
in a wide open sky,
she'll be flying high
without all the baggage.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
