The Sad-Faced Barn
Chuk H MacDonald

 There she waits in her abandon.

 Empty eyes survey the land.

 No-one hears her sad lament

 Except the swallows and the tattletale wind.

 Milkweed and thistle now over-run

 Floral borders long untended.

 Bones of wind, a plague of rust

 Signs of time left un-mended.

 Once she watched him wake the sun

 With clanging pails assail the night

 And toil all day, chores seldom done

 At weather's fail or end of light.

 And his wife, as strong as he,

 Bore his children and wiped his tears

 Not long ago or so it seems

 They made promise forever years.

      To passers-by there's no alarm

      To a run-down house and an old farm.

      But in their haste

      They don't see the waste

      Or feel the pain

      Of the Sad-faced Barn.
