Cemetery At Dawn
By La Belle Rouge

I passed them by this morning
when dawn had kissed the Earth
and felt the peace of infinity
sheltered in rich red clay dirt

they have no need of wealth now
their shoulders no burdens bear
‘neath cool grass laden with dew
they rest but are not really there

marble stones and frozen angels
with wings in benediction spread
give comfort to the living only
they mean nothing to the dead

shells decaying back to dust
and spirits moved on to where?
no one can make them move again
none left now to care or dare

faded flowers lay on sinking graves
but others no remembrances bear
matters not who was or wasn’t loved
when they lie in proximity there

in the city of the dead time ceases
and there are no tears, no pain
no one cares if the sun shines down
or if the gloomy clouds weep rain

heavy prison doors have opened
and death has broken each chain
no more crawling down a rocky road
they’ll not journey that way again

Dust to dust...yet the essence of who we are/were
lives on beyond the cool clay and faded flowers in
the quiet thoughts and words left behind. You tell
it like it is, with music to match. -gene.

Well said and put into words, La Belle.
Reviewed by Georg Mateos 7/7/2009
A morbid poetess wrapped in a gossamer white gown sliding through the city of the dead like a lonely angel looking for a soul that didn't part.
Deep pain and hopelessness not only in the poems words.

Solemn, respectful but also open and true in it's honesty for how quickly do gravesites get replaced in memories replaced.

Tribute to all departed souls who have met the soil at six feet under. Each one of these quatrains are measurable as timeless pall bearers, Belle...laid to rest and free of all materialism, on to the afterlife where chains are left to those of us here on Earth...good poetry...and music...

Love,
Sage
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 7/7/2009
this is beautifully clear-eyed and reflective, Belle. Quite sombre in tone, though with a lightness of touch that indeed captures the duallisms which co-exist quite happily in graveyards, serving to add to our ponderings, rather than answer them. You speak of that ambivalence in a vivid capture of memorial scenery that is sharply observed and felt. This poem breathes easy and is at peace. xx
