Nevermore Lake

WORDS IN THE LIGHT

nevermore-lake

a tear in the sky
a rip in a canvas painting
Nevermore Lake
hurt by wars and years

and the blue ripples of time
and the song without words
willow trees used to sing
after Summer had gone

and a lover on the jetty
phantom waiting mutely
for the Night to reveal where
birds of yesterday found

a haven of peace
