Dreary Death (For Yinka Craig

I
On this bed
Sleeps an older bird
His home was once a nest
But here, he lays to rest

II
Upon this chest
Lays a precious pearl
Yesterday, he sucked the milky earth
Today, he drank dreary death.
III
Don’t cry when you see the grave
For it is made for the brave
Life comes and go like rain
So will you when your breath is slain

I read almost post from this blog. Much obliged such a great amount for offering yourself to us! I discover poetry is extraordinarily hard to impart to others since it is taken from the coating of our souls. I am sharing my job resume writing service, it is perfect place to get perfectly written resume for job seeker.
