Triolet for the Loss of a King

©Eleanor Fairchild (Truly Carmichael)



So still and silent lies the grave
Untimely rest for kin and king
Though grief would loudly prate and rave
So still and silent lies the grave
His life in memory we save
Like feather fall from raven's wing
So still and silent lies the grave
Untimely rest for kin and king
