Shadow Arms

An old tree aged and worn,
Gnarled and withered and torn,
Shades in shadow soft wreaths of mourn,
In shadow, cradle arms are drawn.

Gently grays the shadow's braille,
Cradled within a soul to sail,
Dispatching it, into the night,
The only star a love in sight.

Hand in hand with dream to go,
His arms outstretched to pray it so.
Launching free of lifes hard core,
Into the dark of evermore.

With tears upon his upturned face,
He leaves this sad and lonely place.
To his saving and safe haven.
Away from the raving raven.

Morning sheds the wreath of mourn,
The heart of him, his spirit gone.
Beneath the tree he leaves his clay
His flesh and bone to melt away.

Beautifully written, to make death sound beautiful is an achievement, for me at least.
Thankyou...:

Oh Seymour, I've never read anything so alluring & beautiful....I say alluring because the title alone drew me in to read it's magnificence...Imagery is so powerful and the whole thing is quite spellbinding !! Bravo ! ****bows & curtsies

Not what I had expected, but an excellent piece of work.

For some reason, I especially liked "Away from the raving raven."

Thank you.

Pff, Sunshine, Passing shadows and lets put some Pepper on that,
Your comments and opinions mean so much to me that a mear thank you is no enough.
You are all excellent poets in your own right
and I could not write to a better audience.
I can only say I've made a large place in my heart for all of you.
