Late Summer to Sleep

by GentleBreeze

Age Group: Adult



The gentle sounds belie the truth beneath;
A cruel death, a thousand, yes and more
Surround us, but often less the wreath.
Such violence lies hid amid the peace.

A bitter sweetness lies in lazy calm,
A pretty lure, but one step from the cold.
Profoundly soothing, innocence and balm;
Goddess toys, all firmly in her palm.

A dreamy sleepiness beguiles the mind.
The gentle buzz and hums of summer life
In heat speak nothing of the very kind
Of frantic, anxious, labors to unwind .

And to the drowse and laziness in light
There drifts a breeze, a song now softly heard.
But soon there is another with more fight,
Which strokes the skin with fingers made of ice.

Uneasiness we find in Her embrace;
The fragile comfort fading with the light.
Aware of pain and death, one Goddess face,
We stir to find our ease before the race.

For warmth and pleasure suit us more than death,
Whose aspect black and cold repels the heart.
Some distance we shall keep while we have breath.
Too soon the truth now hid shall fill the earth.
