Anguish Most Dutiful - 'Reading at a Fueral'
The echo of the organs pipes, the absence of a breeze,
The warm and dusty air, filling lungs still mired by grief.
With a hundred looks of pity, and an air of sad unease,
I stay staring at the hull-shaped roof, breathe deep, and start to speak.
One set of dry eyes in the room; to which my sorrow does pertain,
“Too soon, too soon, too soon…” I think, but composure must be maintained
Until it can’t be any more.
