Valsa George


My Epitaph


Below the vault of this moon lit sky
Make a grave and let me lie
In joy I lived and in joy I die
And wish to see no one cry

This you carve on the grave I lie
“Here is some one, though a small fry
Had a heart as big as a mountain high
Who with songs of love, every heart did tie”

    Beautiful, so beautifully written.
    Want to join the others in expressing my wish that you have enough time to write a million more poems before you need an epitaph (Report) Reply

    Your Epitaph- -surely to be written after many many years - -has been so well composed by the poet in you with a mono rhyme to captivate one's heart! So many great people have written their own epitaphs but this one tops the list! The last two lines are exceptionally true with pulchritude! (Report) Reply

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
