Red Window

A Poem by J.R Schlievert

Read and Enjoy


Red Window

Red Window, Red Window open up your pane.

To let out the pain, of a girl once slain.

Red Window, Red Window bring in the light.

How do you bring light from this frostbitten night.

Red Window, Red Window who saw the father.

Of the girl once slaughtered, and blood gone cold.

Red Window, Red Window bring back the life.

Of a loving wife, and a caring daughter.

Red Window, Red Window who saw the man.

Knife in his hand, slowly going up the stairs.

Red Window, Red Window who saw the blood.

Body dragged through the mud, on flower buds.

Red Window, Red Window where did they go?

Red Window, Red Window

So I pretty much am in love with this poem!!!!! The rhyming and the tone...everything is working very well throughout and i love the small story you have intertwined within it too.

This poem just strikes me. It makes me shiver with your descriptions. I wish there was more of a story to it but I fear that anymore and it would ruin it.

Amazing. I love it! I can see why it would win an award. Very beautifully put together and ryhmes, something i dont see very often. I can see glimpses of a story behind it and i love how it all comes together.

Reminds me of the nursery/game, Red Rover. Honestly, I can say this intrigued me and held my attention. Good work.
