A Dry Well

The well is dry hear the bucket sound As its metal hits the dry ground From the windless let way down No ker-splash was there found Dip the pen in ink Far did it sink So so far Dry, dry Clink

    Hi Sara; I decided to read this poem. I seen a dry well back in my hometown. it is in a park, but it is well protected so no one can fall in there. It has been there since the 1800's. Thanks for sharing.... Lucilla

    Aloha Sara... such memories... of relying upon the resources of the land... and knowing how important these were... to family and community... much of those times is forgotten... thank you for these words and for the memories... now how do we express this knowledge and experience to the current generation? through our words. My posts are compositions of my experiences and hopefully will bring about a change in heart. All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michael.
