Poem About Fun Had Around A Table

Hi, I am a separated woman with 4 grown children and 2 grandsons. I was born in Dublin, Ireland. I won't say I had an easy life, because it would be a lie, but I found solace in my writing. It's just so hard to get a break in this country. I don't want to make any profit from writing. I love doing it. I would just like to get a book of poems together.

The Lifetime Of A Table

© Marie Tully more by Marie Tully

Published on June 2011

the table was fun
where once games were played
with children who carried smiles
the sun shining upon the different grains
while wood would come alive
many a tear was shed by each one
many a laughter was heard
plenty of books were opened and closed
stories foretold to be heard
but as time went on the table grew empty
a shadow now sits on the grain
no more the laughter the fun and the games
nothing now, not even names
