Abound in Her June Morning – Richard King Perkins II

Descend the molten bells of melancholy
consuming only sea lace and brittle gorse.
Tonight, you will sing such sad songs
and dim the wayward light of sky.
Baleful instrument, eminent in moonlight,
meaningless and full of portent,
strumble for melting calves
and the reemergence of glaciers
which you cannot fathom to embrace.
Today is the unwitting widow of tomorrow
and your unburnished smile
the dawn of God’s first day.
About the Author: Richard King Perkins II is a state-sponsored advocate for residents in long-term care facilities. He lives in Crystal Lake, IL, USA with his wife, Vickie and daughter, Sage.
