Vale of Tears

She walks along an avenue some call the Vale of Tears. Her sorrow sheds a drop of dew, from eyes that vail a tear. She whiles alone, her gaze unmet, behind a veil of tears. But can she flee from sadness, yet with no avail of tears? In time, the Rue of No Regrets will countervail her tears.
Vale: valley Vail: let sink Veil: something that conceals Avail of: use to one’s advantage Countervail: offset, counteract Inspired by poems of KC

    I enjoyed this one for its cleverness. I don't think there is anything you could write that I wouldn't like,

    Terry; This is really good. Great rhyme. Terry, you didn't read the whole poem Of A Man Stood. You only read part of it. I was trying to rewrite it. My computer messd up. I just put it back. I still had to write a lot more. Sorry. Maybe tomorrow I'll have part III. Lucilla

    Dear Terry - I hope I'm not being presumptious in appreciating this poem on a highly personal level. If I'm not, thank you, from my boulevard of broken dreams. (glad you didn't use that one). If I am totally self-centered in my little mind, I love it anyway. I think you've hit the mark, my friend. Terry - you make my heart sing! love, Kathy

    I love the word play with the different spellings in alternate lines and the way you tied them altogether. Excellent.
