Touch of Fame

poem by: Christopher Russon
Written on May 11, 2016

You are the audience 
Now nature is on stage 
Your audience left you 
Back in the early days.

You wonder in amazement 
And often raise a smile
You were wise enough
To realise fame is just for a while

You loved you laughed 
And lived to tell the tale
Travelling your uncertain  path
The obscure deluded trail.
