Raven: Death by Dawn

Reaper Grim, I ask you thee
          to accompany me
As I tread the dawn and beg
          to see my last
Victory against all victories.
          As I reach upon this crucial
End, the deep, dark and decayed
          all welcome me. And
Now the early sun shall surely see
          the grace that Death shall grant to me -

    I had only read a couple of the poems and wanted so badly to enter but...too many things were going on and didn't get to. I knew Constance would have a time selecting her winners. There is a long list of winners here. You should be so proud of your winning poem congratulations Jan. Love, Carol
