Title: Lament
Post by: flintauqua on July 08, 2011, 12:53:18 PM
I rarely post over here, so I don't know where I should put this.

Lament for a Wavering Viewpoint by Phyllis McGinley

Ah, snug lie those that slumber
Beneath Conviction's roof.
Their floors are sturdy lumber,
Their windows weatherproof.

But I sleep cold forever
And cold sleep all my kind,
For I was born to shiver
In the draft of an open mind.
