John White

John, ------, John,
Your footsteps in the forest,
Like an echo, ------,
Echoing the past.

Through the trees,
------, waiting,
------, in hurry,
------, wondering,

Silence, ------, ‘t is silent,
Empty, ------, alone.
Where, and why,
Is everyone gone?

The ocean here,
‘T is quiet. ------,
The somber waves,
------, they speak no truth.
