Long Way From Home
by Jan Oscar Hansen
Bookmark and Share
  The cockerel has crowed, she has gone to work
but the hamlet is eerily quiet, no dogs bark; look
out of the window, men, in sober black, carry
a coffin out of my house. We walk to the church
neighbors already there, dressed as for Sunday.

The priest talk about a man I have never heard of,
a few religious songs and they all leave. Alone and
afraid in a darkening room; where are my siblings?
Why has mother left me here' alone? If they don't
come I'll have to walk into the vast night unaided.
