Melancholy Child

                                                    Melancholy child
                                                  Shrouded in mystery
                                                Woeful heart; weeping

                                                      Melancholy child
                                            time of innocence; haunting
                                                   Draped in shadows

                                                      Melancholy Child
                                            Your angel beholds Gods face
                                                   your Goliath will fall

    I espcially loved when you said, "your goliath will fall" Nice series on this melancholy child.

    I have enjoyed reading your poetry today and I am sure it will bring inspiration to another poet. I love poetry that is written from the heart as I believe that is where the best poetry comes from. I wish you a wonderful weekend filled with Love, Good Health and loads of Inspiration Lori. Love, Carol

    Melancholy Child-exceptional piece. Love the last senryu most. Keep writing, Lori.
