Spirit Of The Future
larrylark

The Mansion House is haunted
 1
by future presences
 2
that have settled beneath blank skies.
 3
A ghostly jig will be briefly danced  
 4
to clatter among shackles and chains.  
 5
The remaining dead will lay themselves down,
 6
discontented that they have been replaced.

This poem is very influenced gy "The Dead Come Back To Us In Dreams" by one of my favourite poets, Goeffrey Wainwright. Thanks for the positive comment.
