Ruth Long Week 71: Elegy IV

Ruth Long’s Picture Choice: 1

Title: Elegy IV

I do not hear a dirge today
though the clock-tower tolls for one

I do not see a funeral march
though six dark tulips bow to the sun

I do not see your name in stone
though I see your eyes in your son

I cannot cry for what still lives
so I weep for what's left undone
