Oath

Poesy plus Polemics

painting1 “A Very Old Cemetery” by Imre Nagy

grief sits a vigil enduring a hard granite
cold graveyard bench through the lonely
repeating of weathering seasons grief
keeps its own counsel keening in silence
surviving on memories sifting the air
for those traces of love promised never
to perish an oath against dying in trust to
the living if only the heart will believe
