THE LAST DAWN
Gone has God, the mirth as well, love’s sweet liquors
never tell; sun kissed earth, the hope for all, the
raven’s sigh at coming squall
Take the heart so pounded thus, darkened ardor, sour
dough’s musk; give the hearth the light of dawn, springs
the trap on spritely fawn
Now the world lies deep in tryst, silk-tongued robbers
slight of wrist; a nod to all who know this tale, perchance
the shattered dream to fail.
