douglas Posted January 15, 2016 Share Posted January 15, 2016 The ashen face, The lily, The shadow in an evening’s candle light, The parting of a kiss,The fading flush from red lips and cheeks,And the drying tear.The last touch of lovers’ hands,The falling lock of hair,The subtle curve from smile to languor,And the receding resonance of laughter.I looked up to the moonAnd thought of endings.I looked into the starsAnd felt the great fragility.The shapes of bodies in the silver nocturnal light – as angelsPassing through the dying breath of night.The closing of an eye.The very last thought.The tender separation of spirit from flesh.The ashen face -And the lily.
