FOLLY

THIS PIECE IS WRITTEN FOR THE DVERSE POETS PUB PROMPT FOLLY.

Are my words just folly

Do they bring joy

The way Mussenden temple

brought joy

to Fredrick Augustus

and Frideswide Bruce

the folly door

One day i may leave a verse

that matches the folly

on the cliffs edge

but for now

this post

i leave you

hoping

they are

not my

last

words

  1. Your words might end up being as lasting as the folly. If coastal erosion claims it, only words, stories will be left.
    On a more prosaic note, after the photo of the door of the folly and the end of the poem there is an ad, a photo of a fridge door. It’s a Darty ad and it will be tailored to my internet search for a new fridge so only I will see it, but WP couldn’t have found a more laughably appropriate ad if they’d tried!
