Poem: Lament for Lost Love

In the still of the grave
Lies wilting in white
Rose petals of sadness
For my love who lives there
Wrapped in chiffon
The color of fresh snow
Like her body and just as cold

When I think of my bride
In memories in years to come
I will remember the blush
Of her cheek and warm body
Held close mine

Now the grave holds her
With the same silence
As she has for me
Rest peacefully my love
Rest peacefully my sweet


This week’s experimental poem is modeled in the fashion of a lament.
