Memory Poems: 34 / 500

On The Death Of Friends In Childhood

Rating: 3.3

We shall not ever meet them bearded in heaven
Nor sunning themselves among the bald of hell;
If anywhere, in the deserted schoolyard at twilight,
forming a ring, perhaps, or joining hands
In games whose very names we have forgotten.
Come memory, let us seek them there in the shadows.

What a great poem by Justice. I liked the imagery and mood the piece =D.
