Heather Burns


Before Her Eyes


The weeping
willow
stands
silently at
the waters
edge.

Watching
reflections
occurring
over and
over again.

Once she
wore
yellow
ribbons
in her
hair.

A signature
of her
youth.

Now leaning
over, she
discovers
the remains
of yesterday.

Forever
displaying
themse lves
dancing
before her
eyes in
the waters.

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.
