the hut was quiet

Image taken from page 67 of 'Emin Pacha et la rébellion à l'Équateur ... Avec la revision ... de H. M. Stanley. Ouvrage traduit de l'anglais, etc'

the hut was quiet
save the nature sounds
and the chair
familiar and firm

the food would last weeks
the books would last years
but the wait
how long would it last

  1. Wow! That was an amazing poem, and though this is a comment for a contest, I simply can’t critique it. It’s beautiful and the flow and rhyme are perfect. All I can truly do is epxress how much I enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing this. You really said it well, we can WRITE our thoughts but it’s not the same as FEELING them!
