Grief Ascends on the Rising Moon

 Trijan refrain

Grief ascends on the rising moon
   'neath frosted Winter skies
A lone wolf howls, wailing a rune
   desperate for replies
Her mate has died,  she must lament
beside him 'til last breath was spent
   Parted in death
      Parted in death
His body torn,  tattered and rent

Grief ascsends on the rising moon
   as thorns pricking my skin
There is sorrow in the wolf's tune
   My emotions akin
To shadowed darkness we lay claim
Eyes cold without a spark or flame
   Feeling such pain
      Feeling such pain
Love, it's you I seek to defame

Grief ascends on the rising moon
   Haunting my thoughts tonight
Who do I blame and dare impugn
   with defiance and spite
I would caterwaul to the wind
if death's warrant I could rescind
   His life restored
      His life restored
No longer would I be chagrined

Such a deep melancholic poem Lin , the impact of the repeated lines adds to the sadness of the piece. I found the image and imagery quite chilling, hugs jan xx
