Ghostlings

_DSC5155

 

Dancing with the dead, they say
Must be some kind of sin
To call them back from heaven’s grace
Into this world of woe
Let them rest in blesséd peace
Far from the toil and strife
But in the air the ghostlings swirl
Touched not by mortal ills
While breathless mothers, tearless dads
Beg gypsy bands, “Play on.”

About suzanawylie

Suzana Wylie is the not-very-pseudo pseudonym of Susan Wylie Wilson, because let's face it, there are lots of Susan Wilsons around, and as an author, I want readers to find ME and not the bazillions of others. I've been writing all my life - since I learned to hold a pencil anyway - and can't NOT write. Other people have to breathe to live; I have to write.
