Feather

Shall we speak as though we will go on forever?
I saw a feather
Borne on a summer’s breeze.
It did please
Me
To see
So carefree
A thing
Dance on the balmy air.

The breeze became a gale,
Then came the hail.
The feather
Was by the tempest tossed,
And forever
Lost
In that passing storm.

    Hello, I just ‘met’ you at Janice’s blog party. This is a beautiful poem. Says so much with so few words. The feather could be so many different things.
