The Lion Sleeps


And it came to pass the Lion sleeps at last.
The heart sinks as the pain reacts so fast.
Our prestigious Camelot, where have they gone?
Without them, the World goes on.
So much emptier they say.
Hard to know a sadder day.

In memory of Edward Moore Kennedy
1932 - 2009
Rest in peace
