THE ECHOING MIND
 

Sitting, waiting, watching, 
Is anyone there ? 
Was that a footstep on the stair ? 
Hoping, wishing, wondering, 
Was it the wind ? 
Or the approaching pressence of a kindly friend ? 
Listening, heading, hearing 
A noise in the gloom 
Or the hopless sound of an empty room. 
Longing, yearning,  yeilding 
To a sound in the night, 
Like the beating wings of a bat in flight. 
Remembering,  pondering, percieving 
The echoing mind, 
A hall of memories furnished from time.
