Chris and Rollo

Saturday, April 17, 2010


Divining away the shadow play
That frightens little children
And sorrowful old men when day
Comes to a fitful, crushing end
And the vaults are again locked

So children, aware they cannot get out
Souls fearfully aging may never again enter
The young have yet to loose their shouts
The old, gambled off and spent it here
At death's door awaiting the grim summons,
While the children look on in darkest common.
