This is a truly beautiful poem which has left an impression on me. I hope my readers enjoy it as much as I did

When death comes for me
I shall be free,
Rigor shall set its pace
When last sparks peter out in grace.

Adorn me not in jewels
Nor cover the corpse with blooms,
Stage me not in a room
Let there not be gloom.

Worn by temporal pain
I left to dance in the rain;
These invisible scars in my soul
Need no farcical console;
These faces that shed crocodile tears
Had once jeered at my fears.

Let the canopies be my eaves
As I lay beneath amber leaves,
That autumn sheds in grief
When summer is stolen by winter-thief.

As the Earth consumes my flesh
I will be freed of the enmesh,
Of living a life of lie
Trying in futile to vie
For a love that was never mine.

In this season of sentiment
These ephemeral elements ancient,
My essence floats in the air;

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
