Lusting the passions of a secret desire
Unwinding the mystery of my needs
Funerals are for the future
Internment I ask be deferred
Timeless is my youth
Useless is my request
At seeking eternity or at least eternal rest
End of times may seem long away
Beauty we know fades, it will happen some day

So I dream of youthful moments
Isle graveyards were far away

Holy wars and loveless scores
That a soldier must endure
A desire for peace escapes this generation and more
External forces and internal woes
Death dances at my door


Dedicated to Sara Bernhardt, who slept in her coffin amongst all her love letters.

Arthur, how creative to do that acrostic backwards, and the poems is outstanding and those pictures taken at the cemetery are amazing, as we discussed there is something about taking photos at cemeteries that touch my soul, that second pic is stunning and moving, a perfect 7~

wow, Arthur. This one is amazing. I was reading down and couldn't figure out how it speled beautiful and then it dawned on me that I had to read it backwards. Bottom to top. GREAT hidden message!!! I sure hope it is beautiful in the end too.
