Dark Shadow of the giving song

by Keith D Allison

Within the shadows gray



Fragments of stone

In falling rain


Touched now by the arctic wind

The landscape

Covered in a blanket



Spring whispering breath


To stand alone

The lips cold and empty


The song returned void

Waiting now

In the endless night



My child

For the song

Shall sing

No more

"The lips cold and empty" is such a beautiful way to impersonalize the imagery. Excellent.
