The Stranger

The Stranger

A Poem by Amila Jay
"

A poem about a stranger..

"
It was cold outside
With mist on all sides
When a galloping was heard
From the west of the hillside
The wind was howling into the night
He got down from his horse
And forced his way by
There was a small brown cottage
With a dimly lit lamp inside
He knocked on the hard door
With a timid knock
Not hard enough to hear
And waited for sometime
His heavy breath lapsing against life
The dimly lit lamp went off in a while
He thought to himself and went past by
And the stranger went on till early morn
Before he died

Wow, wish I could write like this. Very nice write I think. It sounds mysterious, solemn, and very old. Like, a couple centuries old. I like that. It's a very nice poem. I like it(:

even though the end gets a bit confusing semantically...wow, ninth grade?

pretty exceptional...my earliest poems need to stay in the box in the attic and never be found.

i got chills reading this...i was the stranger outside of myself shivering...sometimes we don't even let ourselves in.
