Sunday Whirl (Wordle #100) presents a list of words
that we must incorporate in a writing piece.
The words this week are:
master, street, change, share, train, die, calls, stretch, march, words, places, create, faint
The Street To Nowhere.
The street was dark and lightly wet,
The wind had quite a bite.
The walkers kept their collars up
And pulled their jackets tight,
The whistle of a distant train
Rolled glumly through the night.
Puddles of light spill out from shops,
As places to find heat.
And there they create little flocks,
To stand and sadly bleat;
Unable to change the weather,
Afraid to cross the street.
Some fail to master how to walk,
Some march as on parade,
Some stretch their legs and make a dash,
Others wait in the arcade.
Calls, words unclear, echo down the street
To die away and fade.
A couple share a bag of chips,
Against the chilly blast.
I watch with remote bemusement,
As from another caste.
A faint smell of vinegar lingers
Long after they have passed.
