after us

After Us.
A world without man
Can’t exist in its vastness 
A dream undreamed 
When great cities are quarries 
And nights are utter horror 

Unrecorded dread
Mother elephant trumpeting 
Survival to day 
In a time that is godless 
Phase is seasons of the vain

Will it be better 
When storms blow without warning
And love is absent 
When rivers flow and fish wake 
Words are echoes of the past.

We are not to know 
As humanity is silenced 
Savannah grass and lions’ pride 
Will continue unexpressed
No one will hear love’s echo

    Jan - You are of a melancholy nature these days. It's hard to think of an "after us" as I suppose I'm very self-centered. love, Kathy
