No More.

Now stilled the ocean's

ceaseless quest


as mighty oaks let fall

their crowns.


The Skylark's song drips

cracked and raw

across a careless dawn;


while rays of gold

no more bequeath

the smile that lit upon

my door.


For time's cruel hand

has taken back


the heart that beat within

my own.
