THE TRAGEDY OF A YOUNG MINER

a poem by Edwin Keith Jepson, UK - poetry writer, author, poet

THE TRAGEDY OF A YOUNG MINER
A young miner lay dying
Beneath a great rock
He was crushed by the weight
Up against a big chock
For many a year
He had toiled down the pit
But he knew in his heart
That for him
This was it
Down in the darkness
No lights could he see
Where were his workmates
To help get him free
The pain that he bore
Was intensely so great
That he cursed the whole pit
With bitterness and hate
And as he lay there in pain
He started to pray
And he thought of his loved ones
And his young Wife
Named May
Suddenly in the darkness
A voice that he knew
Shouted
Are you alright mate
We will soon get to you
Its been many years
Since he worked down that mine
But rumour has it
Hes doing really fine
His healths not as good
And several years
He has lost
But hes one lucky miner
If your counting the cost
