Margaret Hardy's Poetry

I've written poems since 2018, and a selection for each year are presented below, after this first example:

Riches to Rags

Rags - now Iím just a pile of cloths
Full of holes, eaten by moths.
Once I was a pretty dress
Worn by a lady to impress.
Once I was elegant suits
Worn with top hat, cane and boots.
Once fine clothes the gentry wore
Now just cloths to wipe the floor
Once I was garments fine
Now Iíve fallen on hard times.
Rags Ė now Iím just a pile of cloths
Full of holes, eaten by moths.

Margaret Hardy, May 2019
