Acrostic: Empty


Every night they go into town

Maidens in their red and white gowns

Plenty of go gauges show

'Til on corner they know

You now know -- their springs have run down

......................... (Wind them up)

Yes, I like this one much better!

Thanks for all the nice comments, too, Jim. And happy birthday on Saturday...almost Halloween. Mine (68) won't be until December.

Take care and have a good weekend!

I read the poem before I saw the photo. I was wondering what 'they' would be.

I agree with Rebecca.

The emotions are so well expressed in Alone.
