Poems for the Month

April 5

The Cornish Pump
Once I kept the miners dry
There was no other great as I
Five million gallons every day
My pipes carried far away
Eleven thousand tons of coal
Kept me working in the hole
Sixty men to make me go
Lots of pipes all in a row
Electricity was my demise
Cheaper, faster, fewer guys
Rescued for the tourist trade
A landmark of me they made.

Now how am I gonna top that? I have nothing nearly so fabulous as coal mine!

Nor do I have time to write a poem this morning! I will do it when I return from church!
