    Elaine George -the stone... Elaine George. Epigram?

Alone in a meadow in the pouring rain I find the stone that causes all my pain, As I stumble through the fog in disbelief I fall down upon my knees and sob in grief The fog horn cries her mournful sound As my heart falls down, beneath the ground Crying out to God for mercy all in vain To take away the stone that bears your name Author: Elaine George

oh wow, I was so dense, It diden't dawn on me it was a gravestone until I got to the end. My fave of the night, and I just finished reading all the winners of a "best poetry contest!"

Wow, such truth behind this...whether or not it was intended as such. It speaks to me of eternal judgement resulting from a stumbling block. I gave the stone a name ;)
