A Cry for the Lost Country

Durham Street CityAnd I cry for the lost countrySalisbury St City

The regular brick and square of it all

The solid straight lines of tree lined streets

The lovely curves of its river, languid, towards the shore

My country, my land marks, my stone and mortar

Lone brick pileMy sturdy, structured, eternal townRepairs

In rubble, in ruin, in wretched despair

I cry for the lost country of my younger years
