The Darkness

Flagrant Inspiration
Spring rains soft
Love strolls
Black death

Butterflies singing
Life a flutter
Songs only beginning
Black Death

Frolicking gardens
Beer flowing in fountains
Youth teases, curves and tinsel 
Three angels in the corner, sleeping
Black Death

Softer than feathered pillows
The final glimpse through wrinkled curtain
Black death

Rose’s red
Ring around the rosie
Skipping glee abounds
Yet over there in the closet
Black death

The path in the forest
Dark and misty
Winding and twisty
Maps hold no comfort nor key
Black death

The last
The final
The end
Inside the darkness

Always seems to be darkness in the woods! And the ending was the real cliffhanger! "Until......"

Cont- this is my longest comment ever..But I had to appreciate what you did with your verses and how you interwinded them together..Such is the cycle of life...There are younf kids who never experienced the joy of youth due to consequences in their life,yet there are others close to that death curtain yet their life is still a park and a stage.Picnic anytime -Shakespeare : ). A fave of course..and a comment break. Exceptional Masterpiece.Going to play hopskotch nw : )

Cont - Flowers,Spring rains soft.Love strolls, Dancing butterflies singing.Like a flutter-songs only beginning. Frolicking gardens,Beer flowing in fountains.Youth teases curves and tinsel.Tranquility ,softer than feathered pillows.Peacefulness ! Rose's red- ring around the rosie,skipping glee abounds...Thec path in the forest. The last the final,the end. Another poem in your poem..And Ican see youth and joy,darkness and death ..And the poet must lie somewhere close to death yet so close to life
