The insidious spectre of loneliness

Wreathes about the room.

Stealthily wraps around my head

And creeps into my consciousness.

It watches, while the sunbeams play

And haunts the evening gloom.

It steps beside my waking thoughts 

And coils around my bed.

It proves itself in faithfulness,

And, with cold embrace enfolds my day.

Something to cheer you up Respected Ms Sweetwater

The Rainbow 
~Christina Rossetti

Boats sail on the rivers,
And ships sail on the seas;
But clouds that sail across the sky
Are prettier than these.

There are bridges on the rivers,
As pretty as you please;
But the bow that bridges heaven,
And overtops the trees,
And builds a road from earth to sky,
Is prettier far than these.

How very kind, thank you.

How very kind, thank you. That is a beautiful verse. :-) X
