Vale of Tears

Written by: Terry O'Leary

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
