Each day this week I will publish a short 4-line verse, each one commencing with a well-known line, sometimes adapted to suit the context, from a renowned published poem.  The general theme is that of Isolation.

Thomas Gray: Pastiche #5

( ‘Elegy Written In A Country Churchyard by Thomas Gray )


The curfew tolls the knell of parting day

Another week in isolation spent

So give a cheer to all, ‘cos we’re still here,

Despite the trials that we underwent.
