Dylan Hughes is our host for the First Line Friday challenge which alternates with Jim Adams music challenge.
Our line for this week is:
Only the elders remembered a blue sky.
Only the elders remembered clear water,
Fish, newts, toads , frogs,
Babbling brooks and trickling streams,
Pollution came and killed them all,
Black clouds now all that were seen.
Only the elders remembered true laughter,
Family units, friends and acquaintances,
Happy children together at play,
All gone in a dazzle of brilliant light
The world changed that day.
Only the elders remembered times past,
No-one believed things could be so different
That Man was the one to blame:
Ripping out resources, putting nothing back
Each dying like moths to a flame.
Their world destroyed and long gone,
Nobody listened, time passed on by
Only the elders looked forward to dying,
Embraced in a true blue sky,
