Verses That Twinges - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

Verses that twinges
verse that cringes
verse in pain
verse in suffering

verses of shrouds
verses of ghouls
and
the old days
one after one
continue
their treading drear over earth

slow the Earth turns
slow rotates
sad and drear
always as before
sad yet so fair

and we humans
walk, walk, walk,
the violin plays
the ancient violin drawls
drawls slow its sad music notes

and
everything is sad
hopes have got wings
away have they gone:
though still day after day
there be a new dawn

with eyes of sleep
red as we weep
we wait an end
not forward look
but a place in the end to book

verses that twinges
verse that cringes
verse in pain
verse in suffering
