This Other Breed, by Michael Watkins

"We should listen to the old people,

For they have been where we have not.

They have seen what we shall never see.

They have heard the sound of silence.

And when they go

Things will never be quite the same.

They are a dying breed.

It is sad,

But it is so."

Michael Watkins, East Anglian Poet, 'This Other Breed'
