TILL IT BE MORROW
First Voice
Good night, good night. Parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow [William Shakespeare]


Second Voice
You leave us your music
You take with you your smile

Good night then and adieu

Colours of the rainbow curved
Into your every harmonious vibe

Oh but such sweet sorrow just for a short while

Some say music will never die
It ever is just absorbed into ether

Let eternity hold yon Prince onward till
TILL IT BE MORROW © gillena cox 2016

Kerry Says ~ Let's Tip Our Hats to the Bard
Challenge: ...to approach the topic of "things Shakespearean" in a different way. Our world is a very different place to the one he inhabited, and many would question the relevance of Shakespeare's work today. If you could save only one piece of his body of work - one name, one line, one title, one sonnet, one play - which would it be?

  2. Sweet sorrow, indeed. Prince has taken a lot of our memories with him, being part of the sound track of our lives.

  7. A good use of the Bard, to mourn the contemporary bard.
