Michael Edwards







No longer lit by festal breath

the pollard willows sway and stretch

brushed gently by the sighing breeze

they melodize as church bells toll

I walk the lonely road.

    A fine write and pic M. That 'B' has crept in to the title. Though those 'B' roads can be hazardous to walk on - no pavements sometimes.

        I though you had not made a typo. It could equally be entitled 'The Lonely B Road!' Would the 'B' be for (Miss) Berles? Does she drive?

        With fine words and fine art shown here you will never walk that road alone Michael.
