Whispers

A Poem By Clare Marie // 6/5/2009

Across
A moonlit glade
Went a maiden lowly
And her hair was glist'ning there
As she stepped, so
Slowly

Cry!
Cry!
Let bleed your heart
Whispered the rustling trees
Come to our feet, admit your defeat
Fall down upon your
Knees

Tears
Tears
Glide smoothly down
Drops of salted sorrow
She makes a sigh, the trees reply
Why wait until the
Morrow?

Sin
Sin
Destroys your soul
Came the breath of the wind
Why live more this life? It's too much a strife
Cold, sharp as a
Pin

Dark!
Dark!
Fear ye the dark
Little one, end it now
Listen to me, I'll let you be free
The trees sway and
Bow

Grace!
Grace!
I have the grace
She cries out to the night
Get thee away, I'll never obey
Behold this my shining
Light!

Laugh
Laugh
Go the wind's voices

Grace!
Grace!
She sings

Loathe
Loathe
Come the noises

Truth
Truth
Are my wings!

Hate...
Hate...
The trees do bend

Love!
Love!
She replies

Curse...
Curse...

Bless!
Bless!

And so, the wind
Dies

Whoa. That was

Whoa.
That was good.

Absolutely amazing, Clare! I can't even decide which part I like best... I love the whole thing.

Good

As a meager poet myself, I can see a few things worth improving but can't explain them. Good poem, though.

May it be an evening star / Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls / Your heart will be true / You walk a lonely road / Oh! How far you are from home...

Thank you. :)
