Kelly Zion Poems
Water, Oh, Water
Water, water, that's how I'll die
I'll die in the hollow between day and light
water Oh, water, I love you, oh say
Water, my love
Oh won't you bury me?
I'll die in the water, oh love don't you cry
you can come visit, my black valentine
I'll die in the water, so peaceful and right
I'll die by my duckings, call me on the lake
of the water, the water endless as pain
I'll die, fall in, release my breath
I'll die in the water like Clemetine did.
Little Girl On The Beach
A little girl
all alone on the beach
touches the sand
to build a fairytale.
Baby, why weren’t you there?
You could've picked me up and held me close,
stopped me from ever knowing,
