Guilt will plague your conscious as surely as the night falls, until you amend it as surely as the sun rises upon the dawn. For guilt finds an ear ~The Lily of Lough Neagh~



Whilst I ponder in the night

Ere the salts of earthly flight

Drape doth billow in the dark

For this gave me quite a start


Flying Dutchman in my pipe

Tamped it down rightly tight

Cherry smash it tastes quite nice

Smoke doth wisp a ghostly sight




The whisper came upon my ear

Could it be that she appears?




Cannot be for like the ground

And my pipe I tamped her down




Dropping pipe upon the floor

Stood before revolving door




How you cursed me day and night

Nevermore your breath to fright!




Pulling scratching at my feet

Below the floor dead eye is seen!




Engulfed in fear I cannot scream

This has to be a horrid dream!




Blankets tossed upon the floor

Sitting up I scream no more!




Heart it thumps within my chest

Shall I never get the rest!

A different style for you my dear lady Lily. But, this is a good example of how guilt leaves you sleepless.

I bow and tip my hat to you
