Watchman

Dark gray clouds amassed
Sunlight beams rays through
Moisture 'pon green grass
Time when all things life renew

The Mockingbird sings
Loud and strong his song
'Pon the dead limb clings
He the watchman headstrong 

Early one morning
Seeds and water placed
He spent hours singing
All the birds came_raced

His tune understood
All's safe come one_all
Even though some God forsook
But judgment's soon pall

The Watchman sings loud
Enjoy life today
And change from sin proud
Or judgment must weigh.

Finis'

    sweet write. e a poe was all 3. there are other bios of him but this is my first read. will read others to ensure a balanced view. in this one he is; alcoholic, addicted to opium, depressed, obsessive, sarcastic, possibly fantasies of necrophilia, scathing, critical, always broke or nearly so, impotent, insecure, a mooch etc. On the + side he was; brilliant, worldly, devoted, a doting husband, and a masterful marketer, handsome, intelligent.
