A Portrait


Gasping I ran
They said I was besotted
Forlorn I wept
In voids I sketched

Closed my eyes
Sotto Voce he said
'Run, Run, Run, Miracles lay ahead'

At the portrait I winced
Stood entranced
So full of life
Yet something's dead!

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
