And The Soul Leaves

Rating: 2.8

Now the silence descends
like the Lady of Darkness.
Yet his eyes remain wide,
both remaining behind.
Then the stillness is kissed
by the rays of the soul.
As it leaves, laced with grace,
to the end of his road.

herbert you know i love poems about death this is as good as it gets as i was reading it, i got real excited and i was rewarded, a great poem about death and the soul, and a great understanding as conveyed in your poem worth more then a lousey one or two, but i suppose if we keep letting rangatangs vote this is what happens Warm regards allan
