Poetry Showcase – Miriam Thwaites

 

YOUR HOUSE

 

 

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
