Weasel Words With Easy Starts Are Not The First Ones To Our Hearts - Poem by Sean Joyce

Weasel words
with easy starts
are not the first
ones to our hearts
when the cold cadaver light of day
takes one of those we love away

After the funeral
- when the funeral was over
- After we had buried him

We walked across the grass
We walked across the grass
leaving footprints in the dew

footprints in the dew
How was that possible
’God’s name how was that possible

with him forever
And now, forever
footprints forever

looking back across the grass
The warmth of the day
losing us all, forever

    This is great Sean. I like the way that you have put this together. The rauses between stanzas works well as does the length of the stanzas. The fourth stanza, on its own is a work of beauty.

    This is an excellent piece Sean. I hope you value it as much as I do. (Report) Reply
