Knellswake

February 16, 2005

three times thrice

did the knell toll my death

it sang my name

with a mournful, dark wail

and I wept one last time

in joy that I’d soon be gone

to hear no longer the bell for anyone

there was joy and there were tears

but nothing so heart-wrenching

was there as another like me

gone forever in the wake of the knell
