Poem of the Week: Compensation

Goodness, it has been a LONG time since I did a Poem of the Week.

I've been enjoying this lady's poems.  She has a delightful way with words.


Compensation
Helen Gray Cone

The brook ran laughing from the shade,

And in the sunshine danced all day:

The starlight and the moonlight made

Its glimmering path a Milky Way.

The blue sky burned, with summer fired;

For parching fields, for pining flowers,

The spirits of the air desired

The brook's bright life to shed in showers.

It gave its all that thirst to slake;

Its dusty channel lifeless lay;

Now softest flowers, white-foaming, make

It's winding bed a Milky Way.


Have a good weekend!!
