The Brook


I could sit all day
watching you go away

Clouds above stare
at the beautiful air
below your

If you had hands
I would shake them,
for you take along
every rose petal, leaves
or feathers that falls
in as you go.

Your beauty
I have rarely seen

Your fresh face
truly races
through ages
and ages

I remember you
smiling hours and hours

In front
I would stand

Watching you glow
I really would love
to see, where it is you
take, this rose petals
paper boats and leaves
I give to you, as you
go by.

Written for he
who knows...

Never

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
