The Olde Park Bench

This poem was inspired by by the simple but vivid imagery contained in The Red Wheelbarrow by William Carlos Williams.

 

 

The Olde Park Bench worn and weary from many a visitor.
Sagging
under the weight of cares,
grief and opportunities lost.
Deep lines of hopes and dreams etched into the
frayed red wood facade.
Lonely beams stretched out   -   an invitation for the next
travelling soul.
