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 measuring 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 the fire , full of hope and desire ,
Thinking of the future ,
From the mine , Faraway ,
