reflections of a mill

the old gritstone mill
looks at its reflection
in the darkness
of the still canal
ghosts of workers
men, women and children
float by on currents
staring at the mill
that was their life
going to places new
to haunt again


the old, run down mill

stares at its reflection

in the deep darkness

of the still, silent river

as ghosts of men,

women and children

drift by on currents

stealing them away

to new places to haunt
