Wishing Well

Wishing Well

Wishing well 2

On any star, with every penny,

Wishes wing like Pegasus —

Beggars can’t be choosy

As to time and place.

Not just first stars, not only wishing wells,

Inspire the lost and the lonely —

Absence often tends to make

Their hearts grow foolish.

Time, and tides, and all that glitters

You may sweep along with you.

I’ll just keep on wishing

To cease this weeping,

There’s plenty of salt in the sea.
