A Death Knell by Zora Cross

| No TrackBacks
Good-bye! Good-bye! the soft winds sigh,
   When the rosy sun sinks low.
Good-bye! Good-bye! moans the roaring sea
   As it tosses the foam from its brow.
      So mortals sigh, so mortals moan,
         Yet ever say Good-bye,
         Yet ever say Good-bye.

Good-bye! Good-bye! the friends dear part,
   And meet no more in court.
Good-bye! Good-bye! thou dear old realm,
   Where paper battle are fought.
      And mortals pass and mortals pass,
         O, ever say Good-bye,
         O, ever say Good-bye.

That sweet, sad word, that echoing knell,
   Of my poor weary heart,
With tones so like a muffled toll,
   "We part! We part! We part!"
      So "aged" says, so "aged" says,
         And ever moans Good-bye,
         And ever moans Good-bye.
