Best Poem of James Jarrett

A Poem For Carol

Sometimes I wonder in the dark still of night
About you laying cold and white

In sleeps repose, gowned yet dead
A shroud of pills about your head

Your debt to asclepius surely paid
Upon that bed so neatly made

You asked of me a simple task
Not much at all to really ask

Not money nor power, not even wine
Just a moment of my time

To read you a poem

I wonder sometimes in dark the still of night

If I had read you the poem

would it have mattered


Dedicated to Carol who kept shop at the withlapoka community store

Read the full of A Poem For Carol

Nightshade

Softly, ever softly, whisper thou my name

o' thy sweet caress, a potent to my pain

The velvet scent of nightshade full upon thy breath

Kiss me now with longing, o' sweet mistress death

Hold me close unto thee, upon thy loving breast

And let me sleep that sleep eternal

Forever peace and rest

[Hata Bildir]
