Sweet Sadness


On those days
Broke but toys
But now if there is a sound of crack
That is straight and from the heart

On those days
Used to enjoy but sadness
So short-lived and sweet
But nowadays if we fall
So much is blamed
Over a tear drop


On those days
What did we want?
At the sight of a butterfly
We used to jump in joy

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,
