Castle on the Hill


Up on the hill
Behind our house
Stands a castle
Or what's left of it

It used to be a magestic structure
But ememies came and crushed it
Like a bully crushes a sandcastle
Now it is only half there

There are lots of boulders to climb on
But it just isn't the same
As a towering, royal castle
Home to a king and queen

But maybe the people there
Did something to annoy enemies
And maybe they deserved to be crushed
Like a bully crushes a sandcastle

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
