A Spring of Dreams - Samples

A few small samples from the collection 

Trench

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Dancing with my wife

last week the telegraph came:

Coughs ring round the trench


 

Summer

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Bended blade of grass

Bows in the summer twilight

A warm journey home


 

Leagues

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Today’s tragedy

Is the damn acceptance of

Bloody league tables!


 

Sometimes

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Sometimes the things we are due

do not arrive

Sometimes that precious parcel

is lost

Sometimes the blows

are more than we think

we can survive

But we do

 

It is the ancient sadness

of humanity

Happiness has such

frailty
