Favorite Quote:
"..though warm as summer it was fresh as spring." (Thomas Hardy) ("Far from the Madding crowd")

The berries black and tolling as the gold and red trinkets,
Snip, snip, snip; falling as delicate snow off a fur tree;
Sharp and scratched as a silver, Edwardian card –
it falls and as it falls the bell cries, cries, cries,
Out its sorrow;
and, labouring on, it expresses the night.

The author's comments:

A Dark, Gothic piece of Modern poetry, with threads of the Symbolist Movement. A poem expressing darkness and Pathos.
