The Daily Poem – The Girl On The Swing by Marck Prisco

The Girl On The Swing by Marck Prisco

 

The girl skipped off the swing

and walked away.

 

 

That swing is moving still;

caught, I thought at first,

by a slow wind.

 

 

But its twin, the swing

next to it, is dead still.

 

 

I think that I’m lost

in the sky, the leavings

of a butterfly;

 

 

eyes upon the ghost

that once was a girl.
