Tears


Two streaks ran down
parallel
Bother i did not
to wipe away

Amazing they were, frustrating
Whether it be joy or sadness
they come

Mysterious droplets
with taste of salt
they were
at least to me

I clutched myself
full of laughter
as memories called

They are no sign of weakness
nor a privilege only few have

I remember it well
the words o my mum
Yet she is no longer
nor even dad

They began to roll again
now a drizzle, a torrent later

Amazing they were, fustratig

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
