A Sentimental Sod
« on: October 02, 2007, 11:56 AM »
Dear hearts, call me not
when the cold wind blows.
Listen to the keen wail
of my pain as it flows.

Opine quietly of this
loss so soon forgotten.
My blood is chill and
this heart is now frozen.

No welcome comes
when sunlight gleam.
We’ll no more walk
o’or glen, tor, or stream.

The past finds the future
in this disparate moment.
And who, but I, enjoy
such fragile sentiment.

It is good to read your words again, Olde One.  You've stayed overlong from ink and quill.

This is lovely. I can almost hear the dulcimer in the background.

such fragile sentiment.
From this sentimental sod
To that sentimental sod
Not disparately I say
Well done.

Merlin ~

Oh dear sir, master of words, and here not any disappointment at all.  Kudos to another so well written,
the type of writing that I have come to know you by.

G-day,

Good Words. Good enough to think about when in the circle as well.

Wonderful smooth flowing poem. It touched a sadness in me.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul
William Henley
