Graveyard Ghost
By La Belle Rouge


Beyond the gate I keep death’s stalk
Amid gray gravestones and cold crypt
In mists of darkness, restless, I walk
watching as lost souls into abyss slip
They bring them here on sunny morn
as birds sing hymns in hovered trees
or on rainy afternoons they ’oft adorn
graves with red roses and sweetpeas
Beneath soft sod, they lay them down
or lock them into silent, shadowed tomb
Young and old both can here be found
in the stark silence of decay and gloom
No one returns from death’s eternal sleep
they lay them down, they mourn and weep


I cannot say how long I’ve haunted here
without the warmth of any human touch
In my loneliness I’ve paced many a year
while faded bouquet in my hands I clutch
A bloody accident has brought you here
They carried you through the gate today
I understand well your confusion and fear
but I’m afraid that forever you must stay
in ghostly gloom where none rest in peace
to wander these grounds as I have done
Your hunger for lost life never to cease
You are dead, My Darling, dead and gone
Take my hand I’ll be your hospitable host
I’m a spectral shadow…a graveyard ghost

These are perfectly warm sonnets to me, Belle, with the lifeblood of your powerful rhyme and metre flowing through them. And there's an inherent life and passion in them still which keeps those roses and sweetpeas in full bloom. Both death and spectre seem most inviting and hospitable if one has to meet such an untimely end. Such duallisms in the power of this peace captured by your ability to paint the realities and weave the fiction: you stand on the very frontier, at the gateway, and look both ways.... Excellence as always and as poetically accomplished and sure-footed as a phantom gazelle. xx

A finely honed perspective from the other side of life. Who knows if the regiments of life and the soul remain after death the travel endlessly through a meager existence of eternal resting.

Most would like to think so and that is why this poem is more poignant than scary.

Haunting, but nicely done, Belle. I avoid cemeteries whenever possible, even during the daytime, but most assuredly this time of the year.
