Poem: January Fourth

On the eleventh day of Christmas My true love gave to me: Eleven Pipers Piping… January 4th is the “Eleventh Day of Christmas.”

silver and steel
weeping sad notes
saying out loud
what’s stuck in my throat.

birds cannot sing
any sad songs;
if I could fly,
it wouldn’t it feel wrong.

’tis my folly

silver and steel
whistling tunes.
bringing me down,
crumbling ruins.

why is the sun
hiding away?
why have you gone
so far away?

leaving me lonely.


Shall we have a conversation?
