A Faded Boy

  #1524

A faded Boy – in sallow Clothes

Who drove a lonesome Cow

To pastures of Oblivion –

A statesman’s Embryo –

 

The Boys that whistled are extinct –

The Cows that fed and thanked

Remanded to a Ballard’s Barn

Or Clover’s Retrospect –

 

 

This poem makes me think of my grandpa as a child. What does it make you think of?
