OUT OF THE DARK

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

Out of the dark
Came a miner
Who stepped into
The light of day
With dust
On his face
Which was not
There by grace
He had certainly
Toiled for his pay
Shovelling coal
Under a three foot
Roof
In a stint
Stretching three yards
Or more
He worked
All day
For a paltry pay
But it paid
For his rent
And much more
And as time
Passed silently by
With his dark hair
Now turned to grey
He sat by his fire
Full of hope
And desire
Thinking of the future
From the mine
Faraway
