6 To 8 - Melody Of Sadness
The raven’s cry bellows with twilight’s grip
Echoing the staggered throb of a dirge;
Where grief’s murmurings become unheard
Down the walkway of crushed expectations.
A strained lullaby becomes incoherent amidst wreaths
As a young mother quells a song for her child,
Interred through the icy pause of birds’ refrain, ebbing.
