Black Gown Quatern


she wore her black gown  with such aplomb
proud and alone followed to the tomb
sad though she was to lose her man
can she cope on her own, yes she can

the grey graveyard ,with an open tomb 
she wore her black  gown with such aplomb
lifting her head all could perceive 
the tears falling as she stood to leave

her eyes misted tears starting to fall
remembering when love conquered all
she wore her black gown with such aplomb
she gave a last look  at the tomb

friends became lovers as time progressed
loyal  to the grave their love confessed
as they gathered and wept around the tomb
she wore her black gown with such aplomb.

Seren, Congrats in my contest. I had to check the pronunciation of aplomb, which americans say as aplum. So I guess overseas it is aploom sound. Anyway, I really liked it. I think if at the beginning of this poem, you would mention the "friend," it would be better when you bring up the friends become lovers part at the end.
