My Dearest Lord Byron,

laying quietly in this loneliness
holding the dark ends of the night
I try to twist the raveled edges
escaping before the light I tiptoe out
wool shawl can not bay this bone cold
for frost came quickly this year
covering silver velvet rolled brown leaves
and I hear my heart crackle under step
crows in their black winter dress
wear laughter tightly over my head
do you remember the meadow doves
the male has hopelessly gone missing
and his white soul mate searches
she cries against the wind inconsolably
I feel as if I am under her feathers
in tears of a song that knows no echo
searching a meadow of my own
truly when we parted I did not realize
it may have been our last farewell
had I only known this ending differently
I would not have been so ladylike reserve
liquidly throwing myself at your feet
pouring out my heart’s true desire
not laying quietly in this loneliness
holding the dark ends of the night

                                           Forever,
                                                   Liz

Helen- For my cash, this is the best you have ever written.
I definately would like to see more of this from you.

Great Job.

No spring, nor summer beauty
hath such grace...
As I have seen in one autumnal face.

BRAVA!

Fool, said my Muse to me, look in thy heart and write.

oh Helen!

"I feel as if I am under her feathers
in tears of a song that knows no echo
searching a meadow of my own"

you speak pain
like your mother tongue

Our dear poetess, will be so incredibly missed.  This was one of my favorites of hers.
