Gloomy Poetry
By William Smith

Upon reading some of my works,
A friend asked me, ďWhy do you write
Such gloomy, sad stuff? You arenít
Like that. Canít you write something
That is more cheerful?Ē

I thought about what he asked,
And said, ďI write of what Iíve lived,
Of past love lost, and of my life.
I canít help rolling in the ashes,
It soots me.
