I Once Had A Neighbor

I once had a neighbor

you could eat off his lawn

he was so unhappy

not sure what went wrong —

One day I asked

“What went astray?

he looked bewildered into the air

beyond my way.

It was then when I saw

his heart did it wilt

and sadness pervaded the earth and silt.

And tears fell down

upon the ground

and whiteness covered

the green trimmed grass
all around!

-By me-
