Hope Dies Last of All

HDL_logo

Hope arrives first,
Invitation in hand,
Fresh from the post,
Eager to land,
At the door,
Bearing a gift,
From a dream,
Twice removed,
Until it’s clear,
Hope misread,
‘tis not for you,
In illegible scrawl,
Unwanted,
Fleeing a last thought,
You seem to recall,
Hope dies,
Last of all.
