Pursued By a Soulless Fly

Pursued by
A soulless fly
I stroll
Through the wood.

Flies live and die
In this verdant place.
Whilst many men die
Far away from grace.

      Thank you for your very interesting interpretation of my poem, Michael. I was thinking of how insects such as flies can live their lives in places of beauty which (having know soul), they are unable to appreciate), whilst human beings (who are capable of understanding beauty), often live in ugly situations (far away from the green wood), where they are unable to live and die in beauty. But all interpretations are worthwhile and I’m always fascinated by how my readers understand my poems. Best wishes. Kevin
