Black Tea


Written by  J H Martin @ A Coat for a Monkey


The song from a bird

The splash from a pond


The cherry tree

Has grown too much

This year


Sun rain sun rain


Who would have thought

That this would find us


Still here


Sitting smoking

Thinking smoking


What can I do?

What have I done?


To do nothing

To sail a dream

To climb through the clouds


Having no plan at all

Would be best plan to make


For all of this

And for all that is not


I think

I know

I matter very little


Some leaves are now brown

Some have already fallen
