a widow

 the widow’s face
 so full of sadness
 is hidden under lace
 her sobbing fills the church
 as none could take her
 dear husband’s place

Jack Horne, 22nd September, for Nette’s Compression contest

    This is a very, very, good entry into Nette's contest, I don't think I could do better my friend as you have done so excellently with this tremendous write! I was trying to think how I could write a Halloween entry but am not sure how Nette would feel about that, she likes my Frightfully Dark Poetry that I do for fun, but this would be for her contest! I dunno! I truly loved reading this awesome poem here this evening! Great Work!!
