Welcome to Andrew Hide's poetic world.

.Another Night

Another night with pen in hand
Near the darkened corner,
Desk, a mess with with scattered thoughts
Rough poetry and crumpled notes,
Ever seeking the scent of
William Shakespeare's rose.

Another night with pen in hand
Leaning hard onto the paper,
Lights burn bright in other rooms
Enough to throw dull shadow gloom
Near the darkened corner.

Hiding in the thoughts, my own,
Images of sunny days
Dreaming how we used to roam,
Ever onwards through open fields.
