Death - Reborn - Balassi Stanza

As I take my last breath The pathway to my death Is the Arc of a Rainbow In Darkness, unforeseen With a Soul, so unclean As a Raven’s or a Crow I can feel this new Life Sounds of bagpipes and fife An Eternity, to Grow Inspired by Dr. Ram Mehta’s Contest “ Balassi Stanza “ Author’s Note : Dr. Ram has Taught me more English Than my Jr. & Sr. High School Teachers : Combined
