poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2007


Sitting dull and grey
Under broad oakleaves forgotten
Lying under chestnut trees
Unspeaking - barren - rotten

A sign with written symbols
Carved in worn out wood
Dug deep in fresh soil
Deep down dug for good

Symbols washed and faded
Worn out by the sun
Treasures hidden early
Before growth begun

Unreadable and unspoken
Known of by no man
Long lost and forgotten
In a faraway land.
