Woman of Sorrow

Drink to her whose sorrow
Has aroused a poet's sigh;
A woman who brought tomorrow
What treasure can never buy.
Her words are penned with sadness
And often an empty tone;
Along with all those feelings
In a sea of tears from feeling alone.

Here's to her whose sorrow
Has made many a poet cry;
Her words are read with tears
That rain like love from the sky.
Now the sea will drink her tears
With those we try to hide;
Here's to her whose sorrow
Flows free from deep down inside.

A collaboration with my friend Dan Kearly.

    Now now o'Elizabeth o'pen... you'll need now know this then... I've dallied with bit o'license poetic... during moon's reddened eve frenetic... Ayiyi... I'll try plain-speak rather than my feeble rime-speak! Read your rime and so was inspired to do a sort of dialogue and created a second to respond so to speak to the first (hmmm..seems my so-called plain speak is even more fraught with ambiguity than t'other! Check out my "She O'the Morrow". I'll remove it upon request. Best to you, SeaWolf

    This is is fantastic, Elizabeth. I love the concept... How you guys packaged the poem complement the perfection. I'm glad I read this poem.

    this could well describe so many classic women poets whose voices were not heard until after they were dead! Nicely done, you two!!

    Who wrote what, we do not know. The passion intertwines as both pens flow. The pain and sorrow in one souls heart. Is stilled when two pens play thier part.

    What you once told me about how you express thru your poems all that happens in your life, I can't stop thinking about this one. I pray this has nothing to do with you, dear.
