Sally Plumb Plumb

(23 9 1940 / Haverhill Suffolk England)

The Slow Walk


She walked the flatlands
with the sincerity of a dullard
when her thoughts crumbled..

causing memory pain,
solidifying errors
of judgement and fault,
the weight of consience
and a heavy heart...

but she smiled,
a superficial smile,
and carried on
walking the last mile home.

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
