Edmund’s Notebook 1: I Have No Wish To Go

A Poem, written in the style of Gerard Manley Hopkins:

I have no wish to go

Where children run

Past wooden gates where dark clouds hide the sun

And a black wind does blow.

And I have hoped to be

Safe in my home

With a ticking clock and where weevils roam

And I can just be me.
