"WHERE'S SHE GONE?" by OLIVER WRIGHT

"WHERE'S SHE GONE?" 

 

Where’s she gone, the one we knew, 

The one we knew and loved,

Who knew us all and loved us all – 

Where now is all that love? 

 

Where now her smile? Where now her frown? 

Her bright, resounding laugh?

Ah, all are gone, by time undone;

All that was her is past. 

 

Down the stream we drifted, 

And saw her on the shore; 

Around a bend we drifted, 

And saw her then no more;

And yet still she stands there - 

Still stands beside the shore. 

 

 Oliver Wright  'This is a poem I wrote in memory of my mother'
