Sunset.. Sunrise Sunday

These are some of the headframes that are around town.. they are no longer used of course.. but they stand tall.. more of a memorial to the miners that worked in these mines in that time frame.

Mother wept, and father sigh’d;
With delight a-glow
Cried the lad, “To-morrow,” cried,
“To the pit I go.”

Up and down the place he sped,
Greeted old and young,
Far and wide the tidings spread,
Clapp’d his hands and sung.

Came his cronies, some to gaze
Rapt in wonder; some
Free with counsel; some with praise;
Some with envy dumb.

“May he,” many a gossip cried,
“Be from peril kept;”
Father hid his face and sighed,
Mother turned and wept


Have a beautiful, peaceful and very restful Sunday.
soft hugs ~Hope
