Lament

Rating: 4.0

the snow falls on my fathers' bed
on the foot
on the head
the snow falls on my fathers' bed
all the night and morning long

my fathers' bed is in the ground
his sleep is deep
his sleep is sound
my fathers' bed is in the ground

na will he soon awaken

An interesting poem which warns us all against reckless living and a very touching one too.

Wow so deep! When you get to the devil took him by the hand and turned him on to heroin the imagery smacks you in the face! ! Keep on writing man.

Robert, This astonishes, admonishes me to mourning and song. I was surprised by the heroin. And then the snow fell into an utterly tender, brutal meaning. Truly, a lamentation psalm.
