Ther Stairway from Prom to Where? by mauveone.

The Stairway from Prom to Where?

There is a stairway

Near where we stay.

It goes from the bottom

to top the top.

 

The handrail looks

Strong and firm.

It would not do

If it were not.

 

The red brick

Retaining wall

In their lines,

Go from bottom

to the top.

 

The red bricks look

Strong but the green

Weeds at their base

Show neglect.

 

At the top of the

Stairs is a gate.

a gate to keep –

Unwanted people

       Out!

 

The gate has lines

Both vertical and

Horizontal. Strong lines.

Strong iron, which says

“Private property

Keep out.”

 

Lines that go from

The bottom to the top

 

NOTE: This poem is No. 3

In my series of poems on

The theme of “Lines”.

Bridlington North Promenade. 10.7.18.
