Ishaisms, Poetry

Who says the dead leave, and tell no tales?

Who says the dead leave,
and tell no tales?
I hear stories of the lost and gone,
in the winds and gales;
in the shadows of time,
they move and dwell –
their goodbyes sudden,
devoid of the death knell.

But I’ve seen many a person leave,
and my queries quell;
known how to be at peace,
and wish them well –
for one is always at risk,
once out of one’s shell;
one is always at risk,
when one is unveiled…

So bow with warm wishes,
and bid farewell –
the curse is over;
broken, the spell…
But remember, the dead
their tales do tell;
remember, the dead,
their tales will tell

  1. Great writing. “Who says the dead… tell no tales”, this couldn’t be better. Most of the stories we hear and tell start with the finished ones, the dead ones.
    Everything the wind carries is from the past. I really loved your piece!
