Long gone are the days

Sitting on the the green blanket

Crushing an ant and a termite

That are busy colecting their food in a bite

To eliminate and terminate

The hunger come winter


At the other end of the meadow

Among not a few willows

Are several windows

Upon which lives several widows

All looking out of their windows


Looking back at their past

Which is long past

Wondering how fast

Their lives flew fast

And wishing wistifully that the rest will also be fast
