Mourning Song

Mourning Song

A Poem by Neville Pettitt

Mourning Song

 

Where there once were

Mountains

There is nothing now but sea

 

And although

 

I refuse to sing a mountain song for them

I shall sing a mourning one

For thee

Beautiful tribute to Geraldine who sadly died before her time. A great deal of feeling in these words, expressed from the heart. Your readers will know from the composition of these lines, how much she will be missed by you Neville.
