Graduation Day

These days with dancing, in June

Hours timeless in succession

Moonlight swarms shimmer

in shadow beyond the burning pyre

Faces alight in flame

Their imposters fill the tree line

stalking the opposite shore

No thin white duke in linen,

your Kangaroo

Still bittersweet recollection

in your plaintive wail

The tale of woe

Love unrequited

still rises to west horizons blue
