‘Fifty Days And More


‘Fifty days and more
Have passed
And yet
You have not visited me’

So spoke the Voice beneath
The damp stones of green.

Fell I on that blessed ground
And kissed I that blessed ground
That day.

‘My mother, o my mother’

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
