Songs Of Yesterday

The rusted
Gate swings,
The light fades;
The creaking
Of the swings
And empty doors;
And dirty factory
Floors.

all_the_leaves_400Empty,haunted,
Grey and gaunt
Faces huddling
Under torn posters;
Staff rosters stained
Yellow with age like
A medieval scroll,
A treasure map
To some lost Kingdom;
Flapping ragged on
The walls like
A pinned lifeless
Trophy-skin.

The songs
That echoed in
The empty halls;
The tea and
Coffee pots;
The splatter
And the chatter
As the train clattered
Through bowels of
Industrious
Cities.

The euro coins
Tinkle in the
Begging bowls;
While in the north
They laugh,the
Frau and the
Frappe.

The rusted
Gate swings
The light fades;
The creaking
Of the swings
And empty doors,
And dirty factory
Floors.

Empty,haunted,
Grey and gaunt
Faces huddle
Under shadows
Of faded dreams;
Singing songs of
Yesterday.
