Poem Story: An old man's lament.

Tags: Drama  

 class="c">November rain descends in angry spatters
on crumbling leaves that lie in tatters
on chilly ground that waits its winter sleep.
Forgotten flowers bow heads and weep.

Chilly drops—what purpose in their minds begot
to wet the ground when it matters not?
Grumbling clouds grow grayer still;
speak to all of nature's will.

November rain brings back to mind
showers of May, left so far behind.
She was my mistress—we danced and sang
'til the toll of age and duty rang.
