ESTRANGED, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Lonely o' nights is yonder vane
Last Line: Flutters unechoed over all.
Subject(s): Lonliness

LONELY o' nights is yonder vane;
But lonelier I than Chanticleer,
The sleepless bellman, still apeer
For strutting cock and dusty hen.

My ghost (mortal I dead this night)
Whips bat-like through crooked orchard trees,
Old cronies once; now alien these
I loved. Moon's blurry lantern light

Half veils unveiling fanciful
Long barns, grey stacks; those all I knew
Now know not me. A wail, ghost too,
Flutters unechoed over all.
