The roaches are still

The roaches are still

30 November 2011


The cough has strengthened

Summer has now shed its tears

Pallor has threatened

And darker became the fears

The earth sank into its crust

The roaches are still

The day missed another beat

On my window sill

Autumn leaves have come in fleet

To wed the flight of the dust

Sun fights its way on

To the dimmer point of sky

Light fills the grey hood

As birds shrill and strong agree

With a tune in my brain etched

Bright a cloak did don

As light is ever so high

My mind its ground stood

With roots in earth as a tree

And a hope of sky outstretched
