To whom it may concern

As the moon argues with clouds
 In winter’s tormented sky
A frail life lingers in the shadows
Waiting for deaths hello
To glide over the river of Styx
On the spirit of his funeral swan.
Through frosted windows, 
A whispered orb appears
Hovering over mortal conscience
Mirrored in masked apparitions,
Around the candles flicker.

Voices fill the room
Calling the cemeteries dead
Calling witness to this passing
And In the Rocking chair a figure

Speaking, plumes of mist
Looking from a dark abyss
Where once there was a face,
The scratching of a Quill,
Writing, moving across a veil of grey,
Hiding the pages beneath
The quill of mankind
Is Here to empty your soul,
Though your heart will try and hide,
The truth,
 The person that is you.

For in his wisdom
Creation gave you a conscience 
And that will always betray 
This person that was you

And another testimony is done
In the trial of Mankind

    Steven, I like your very creative description of death. At one point we will all cross the River Styx. If we lead good lives, we have nothing to fear. Powerful line about the "quill of mankind" trying to empty our souls. Conscience keeps us on the right path. Thank you for your kind words. Love and blessings, Carolyn
