In Memory of WJH Day 9

Aloneness


Winter’s wind’s particularly harsh
     I awake wondering how you
          Bore living so far outside
                  Town, beside the tracks
                        A train whistle blows lonely

  3. thanks Kirsten and Jade - I thought it might prove difficult to write an entire month of tribute poems but it's been more of a labour of love than I expected and often, the words are just there ...

  4. Ach - I wrote the reply to Jade and Kirsten on my daughter's computer forgetting entirely it would show up as if she wrote it - sorry, J Rumer is my daughter but the thanks are from me S.E.Ingraham
