Could It Be In Despair Premiere Contest Winner

Could it be in despair The naked tree weep in song O' how her pastel love In silence had simply gone And now to sit in moonlight haze The pen, paper, the empty page Lying in silence without a sound Ripped and torn I slowly drown

Love it, Rick. : ) So romantic... To me, feels like the "old time religion" of poetry.
