Poetry Showcase – Miriam Thwaites





Before I take my leave to go,


To travel to a grey world in polluted lands,


I beg to stay one moment more,


One moment in this lonely sea


Of grass and swaying trees.


Your house is folded in the darkened wood


And stands by the rushing glen


The house that watched words beat her down


While no one else knew their strength,


The house that saw quiet tears


Roll down weathered cheeks


And time grow sick with waiting.





I am an eighteen year old girl homeschooling in England with my six siblings. I love nature and writing.”

Miriam Thwaites, Wolsey Hall Student
