"Down, down, down into the darkness of the grave Gently they go, the beautiful, the tender, the kind" - Edna St. Vincent Millay soft ripples spread gently ... death's frail surface trembles with our grief as each soul we cherish plunges the gossamer veil ... the warm arms of peaceful release await there 'midst the tender darkness to hold them close in their boundless dreaming. Written and submitted on May 21, 2020 For the "Etheree" Poetry Contest Dear Heart, Sponsor. ( Syllables = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, counted at )
