Poem 029: Sing me, Memory


Sing me, sweetest memory,
Let your song benumb
My senses, let your witchery
My spirit overcome.
O sing your lay
And take away
The grim reality,
Give back the day
Of childhood play
Or else, give death to me!

Sing me, love, your melody,
Let your siren hum
Permeate my quiddity
Until my thoughts succumb.
O sing the strain
And let me pain
For golden times gone by,
Let me attain
That life again
Or else, love, let me die!

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
