Driftwood

Poem By Linda Harnett

We built a bonfire on the beach,
A fire to keep us warm,
You put your arms around me,
And we watched the setting sun.

My head upon your shoulder,
Your breath upon my skin,
The moment overwhelming,
I couldn’t take it in.

We sat in silence, listening,
Bathed in a golden glow,
The sun high in the sky above,
The bonfire: far below.

And when the sun had left us,
And vanished for the night,
We fed the flames with driftwood,
And watched the birds take flight.

Somewhere

Oh, to be lying,
On a beach,
Somewhere,
With sand in my toes,

Today, I Lit A Candle

Today I lit a candle,
In memory of you,
A very special tribute,
A flame of gold and blue.

Autumn Leaves

The autumn leaves,
Abandoned tree,
The red and yellow,
Now are free,

Hush Now, Child

Hush now child,
No need to say goodbye,
No winter song,
No gentle lullaby,

I'M Going Now

I’m going now,
Just moving on,
Perhaps you’ll miss me,
When I’m gone,

Puppy Love

I had a little puppy,
It piddled on the floor,
And every time I mopped it up,
It piddled even more.
