'As I look closely
At these photos
What I see clearly
Is faded youth

For bright faces then
I used to see
But now a memory
Of past beauty

These photos taken
Are now retained
And never forgotten
In hearts forever

As we slowly cling
To fading time
These photos will bring
A silent story.'

    Hi Jesus: Beautiful, haunting poem that is lovely in its gossamer expression. Wispy memories that are with us always, aided by the beauty of photos. Simply and well-written, as usual. (Report) Reply

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
