This Hospital Bed


This hospital bed is a-middlin', middlin',
Crickets are a-fiddlin', way back home.
This hospital bed is a-middlin', middlin',
And Doobie is a-waitin' there, all alone.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
