La Piccioletta Barca - Issue 17
Liberty’s Sacrificial Toll

Liberty’s Sacrificial Toll

Sacrifice,
Sacrifice,
Reminisce and recall-
Of liberty’s bloody toll
Paid for in gloom and doldrums
Faceless fathers, sons and lovers
Faded friends in tattered frames
To come a time;
When names leave on whispering winds
Carried back to rest
But for now;
Dear name pursed on my lips,
Till utterance last- on dying breathe
Holding memories until closing days

Hermits Silent Retreat

Hermits Silent Retreat

Lonesome dampness cavern dark;
The hermits encompassing matriarch
In Silence he ruminates his day-
The weathered philosopher thinks as he may
No distraction of humanities loud progress;
To deaths tranquil door he makes egress.
