Lover’s Meadow


Brielle Amick


The lovers lay in the meadow all day

Skin turning shallow and gray

Their fingers interlocking, turn from skin to bone

Their names and lives unknown

Where has their flesh gone?

Ask the foxes drinking from the pond.

Or the insects that come along.

Perhaps the lovers wished to be alone

But again, it is unknown

For eternity this shall be their resting place

May the meadow keep their souls safe
