Couldn’t leave the letter “E” without a more serious take. Amy

Elegy (ABC Weds.)

Ending was not without effort
She simply missed the effervescence that had ever been
part of her existence

Without the ever-present spark
emitted by Eros and elegant inspiration,
there was evidently no point in going on
An emptiness of energy

Please, summon empathy for
this exiting soul
who could not endure
the lack of
an eagle’s wing.
