sweet voice sings sadness
of love waiting, death’s warning
senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere
The Tuesday Platform shared a beautiful haunting song for the poetry challenge: The Highwayman sung by Loreena McKennit. I highly recommend a listen. It’s a sad song though. Alfred Noyes wrote the poem in 1906.
