A Parting Ii Comments

Rating: 3.0
I WILL not wake you, dear; no tears shall creep
To chill the still bed where you lie asleep;
No cry, no word, shall break the sanctity

mastermind writing- I will not tease your grave with flower or stone; You are tired, my heart; you shall be left alone. ... But when the good day comes, you will hear me cry, 'Ah, make a little place where I can lie! ' /// Excellent writing on the parting of soul

A 2.9 rating? ? ? Maybe somebody burgled the voting box and stole righteous ballots...

Death of a loved one is a most difficult thing to deal with. Poetess here dealt with it so beautifully in this poem.

This is lovely and tender. And as credit to the craft of it, nothing interferes with us taking in, feeling, these things. -GK

A very beautiful poem for one you love the most and lost. ''Ah, make a little place where I can lie! ' And half awakened, you will feel me creep Into the folds of your familiar sleep, And draw them round us, with a tender moan, 'How could you let me sleep so long alone? '..is so emotive. To make a place by his side to lie. Great poetry indeed.10+++++++

Congratulations too to her family in England and throughout the world. A very emotive poetess for sure, thinking of the decennia she lived in. A 10 and much much more for the voting.

A Classic poem most tragic. I cannot say differently after having read for the second time. My first sight was a darkest view and that has not lightened after dew, so very pity for this poetess, she is mourning still in her real life at the time she was alive, she was left by her loved one, her bedmate. Congratulations as Classic Poem Of The Day!

'No cry, no word, shall break the sanctity Of the great silence where God lets you lie'.......Poignant! A sad goodbye, a quiet mourning!

The poem has good thoughts that are a little overstated for the modern ear
