A Poet Dies

A poet dies, but does not die
if he has left a line
black-inked upon a mellowed page
or lingered on the mind.

    Not sure why there's no comments on this one. This was brilliant! I loved it's simplicity... Shakespeare, Poe, Frost... they all live on, upon the shoulders of their greatest fans. Good work!
