Shall I tell you?

Shall I tell you ?

14 January 2011

Shall I tell you now how it felt

With wasted robes clinging

On a body that would melt

With a sinister chest singing?

♦ 

Shall I tell you now how I dealt

With those echoes once ringing

Of bodies yonder that had smelt

Summer scents winds bringing?

♦ 

Shall I tell you now how I knelt

In solemn faith yet again praying

While the stones on me did pelt

The other cheek goes the saying?

♦ 

Shall I tell you now how I tried

To adapt to a world so changing

With a bosom that much sighed

Of nature’s order one deranging?

 ♦

Shall I tell you now how I cried

Of a stray, lone, lost fledgling

Like an orphan, infancy denied

A heart multiple beats failing?

♦ 

Shall I tell you now how I died

From low ugly blow still reeling?

A glimpse in corpse they pried

Open my soul lay all revealing
