Shakespeare's Lament

Shakespeare's Lament

A Poem by Koeseki

When the great tree falls,
And lovers die,
Think of Romeo,

When dreamers sing,
The call of death,
Think of Mercutio,

Through romances bind,
Though ill advised,
Think of Cordelia,

Ancient tempest rage,
And death ensues,
Think of Tybolt,

In liquors dry,
passions rue,
Think of Juliet.

When life tries death,
And finds it nigh,
Think of Love.

I love it. Short verses, its direct and finishes clean with meaning, love the corollations. This is a good solid piece I'm glad I got to read it.
