Rather long, and a bit spooky. But hope you enjoy it.

Rather long, and a bit spooky. But hope you enjoy it.

Wuthering Heights

Heathcliff-like, you haunt my dreams,

central force of all my schemes.

Each decision carefully planned,

manoeuvred by your guiding hand.

Seeds you scattered long ago

only now begin to grow;

germinating slowly first,

unfolding with an unquenched thirst.

Across the barren wasteland calling;

as the burning sleet is falling;

Kathy walks with silent tread

through the lowlands of the dead

where ancient ghosts with hollow eyes

search the endless, sullen skies

and icy fingers pierce the skin,

trying to reach the soul within.

The air is filled with Ravens' cries

and jilted lovers mournful sighs.

Their bitterness will not be shaken,

nor their torment be forsaken.

Call your Kathy from her cold

and empty moorland road.

To Wuthering Heights, bring her back home,

no more these twisted paths to roam.

Out onto the frozen moor

where deep snow lies and north winds roar,

Heathcliff passes through the vale

with eyes so black and skin so pale;

as kathy waits beneath the Elm,

to welcome to her lonely realm

the one whose love she once rejected,

who now her heart shall keep protected.

When the day is quiet and still

look out towards the Heathered hill

just as the Sun is going down

and shadows swathe it like a gown.

Two lovers walking hand in hand

across the shimmering, whitened land.

Where they are going, no-one can know -

they leave no footprints in the snow.

  • Wow! That Was incredible! Thank you for sharing that. I didn't know anything about Wuthing Heights. I want to know more. I will look for a book. You helped me find something to focus on. Having a very hard time with RA pain, meds and weakness. I can't open things. It's ok I don't have anything worse and I'm not dying.
