    THE EMPTY ROOM

    THE EMPTY ROOM

    ‘Tis but a dream, I wake
    and touched.
    It was not there,
    no more than a fog upon
    the moor, or a ghost meant to
    deceive,

    Just a whisper to conceal the
    true meaning from view,
    as one would secure a
    lovers door
    while entering.

    It was no more than
    holding the
    light of day in my
    hand, or catching the
    dark of night ,
    thereby; keeping it.

    Tis but a dream that
    has vanished ,leaving
    no foot prints,
    as if
    it were never there.

    I like the repetition of the words and the meaning comes through very delicately! Very Artful!

    To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
