Something Red - Poem by Nellie Isabelle Steward Cooper

Something red is
Hazing the sky

Oh heart your bleeding
Is not anymore than I

Our deaths are similar
We were prey
And just a little less wise
Than they

Oh you and I
Oh heart are bleeding

And have bled

Something red is
Hazing the sky-and eyes
ask:

Why?

Can this be all?

Something bred
Something dread
Something dead

Something red is
Hazing the sky

Oh yes dear heart
That's all:
All that can be said

In running blundered
A panic took our heads
Heedless - the path led here

To this most sacred place
Oh you and I
We go together - our time draws nigh

Something red is
Hazing the sky
