Poem No. 48 Footfall I

Just completed, ink not yet dry, today’s poem ‘Footfall’ accompanies last week’s photo blog, My Daily Snap, on the same theme. Enjoy.


Light of touch,
Softly, not too much,
Nature’s bed
Be beyond repair,
Your leaden
Permanently recorded there

Tread gently on,
And upon
This aged land,
Leave only thoughts
No careless hand,
So all here remains
To be,
Another’s cherished memory
