A Shepherd’s Lament

A SHEPHERD’S LAMENT
By PoeticMeditations

My love no longer shall pass this way
Before the sun has arisen high
Music once had sounded in my heart
When upon her face my eyes did gaze

With flowing tresses and lips so sweet
Her beauty renowned throughout the vale
A kiss in exchange for wildflowers
But Fate deemed we shall no longer meet

My heart now empty lies like a stone
For on this day to another wed
As the church bells in the village sound
The wind through the pines now blows forlorn
