Christmas Mourning {A Poem}

Snow on flower

Christmas mourning

Sorrow blankets the heart

A blizzard of grief

For those suffering loss.

No carols of joy

Just songs of lament

A tear-filled tune

When the night is silent.

Earth’s carpet winter white

We shrouded in black

Like the lorn nightingale longing

For her loved one back.

-Debbie Neal Crawford

The love lorn nightingale, nightly to thee her sad song mourneth well. -John Milton
