' A Walk To The Cemetery To Visit Some Friends............{ Author's Recommendation}

Rating: 5.0
I'm taking a walk to the cemetery this morning,
be back before noontime for crumpets and tea.
I have two friends who died not so long ago;
they were brothers, treated me the same.
Had not spoken with them since that night.
The night it rained red glass and tears
'neath the stuttering lights on Dawsonstills Bridge.
Still, sometimes at night
i am awakened by the sound of it
somewhere still inside me.
You see, Death....will always find you, when it wants to

This is so beautifully written- - You write like one of the great classic poets. They don't make them like this anymore. And of course, it's a 10. I look forward to reading more of your works.

A heart-felt ode to friendship on earth and in the afterlife. A poem that can be truly appreciated by both poet and non-poet. A superb quality of writing that is simple, yet profound. This is very down-to-earth, yet spiritual. It's my second read of your work. And it won't be my last. Thank you for acknowledging their memory in such a beautiful way. I hope those students read this poem and had some similar sentiments.
