"The Golf Links"

In honor of May Day, and yesterday's Poem in Your Pocket Day, this poem by Sarah Cleghorn:

The Golf Links

The golf links lie so near the mill
That almost every day
The laboring children can look out
And see the men at play.

Sarah Cleghorn was a Christian Socialist born in 1876. She published her first book of poetry in 1917.
