Musings

Be gentle, sky, and let me rest -
These bones are worn - they lack the zest
Of flesh in life - they're marrowless! -
Their arid surface, nakedness! -
Betrayed in death; no sheen of red
From coursing blood; and blue was shed
Upon the fading out of eyes
That cased the world and gave disguise
To what my deepest thoughts had been -
But now I'm done with all I've seen.

    By far the most amusing poem I've read all day! I love the lightness of it, because death is usually a heavy theme. ^_~ zest, marrowless and nakedness is just brilliant! : D
