LET THE MOURNERS COME

By 9th October 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

Let the mourners come
One by one
Approaching the deceased one

Let it be said
As this man
Is laid to rest

The tears will flow
Upon bitter ground
To the end

Allow the bells
To start ringing
And for the service
To begin

Let the mourners come
But the grievance
Has not yet begun.
