The Writer Weeps - Poem by Aaron Barth Martinson

Within a tomb
Or just a room,
A catacombs
Or just the place to kneel;
In terrible idol thought-
I saw the writer crying.

His instrument used;
But why the tears?
No idea is his own,
For imagination there is none;
Even God is done.
His influence is gone.
