The Eternal Round

byLadynStFreknBed©

The sun fails to mark the eternal round
of children laughing and widows’ hot tears
echoing illusions of the life bound.

The generations of footsteps resound
of the altruistic and profiteers.
The sun fails to mark the eternal round

of the faceless bearing portraits renowned.
Sterile words rain over similar ears
echoing illusions of the life bound.

Worn, limestone paths to the flowered grave mound
lead the motherless child, and it appears
the sun fails to mark the eternal round.

Countless constant songs of nature surround
as a tiny bird hiding reappears
echoing illusions of the life bound.

If one were to wander to the profound,
crowds stand ready to mock such mutineers.
The sun fails to mark the eternal round
echoing illusions of the life bound.
