THE END OF THE BEGINNING
We give you the last poem as an example or taste of Barbara's poetry.
Gone is the blue horizon
And restless wves lap the shore.
I sit at the darkening windows
For I'm waiting for You.
One day that speck on the ocean -
One day Your ship will appear.
I've spesnte half my life at the window
So what sea should I fear?
The ship that breaks the horizon -
Sought for many a hear
Carries the undenied Captain
Now that the welcome is near.
