Lyrics for Magnolia, too

Author: • June 11, 2018 • Poems

As the beats of summer
Went down
Went down in Sorbonne

We were together
We were together
In the shades
Of perplexity

And magnolia too.

Talking of death
What would
What would indeed
Happen after that

The aroma, heavy
Wafted about
Wafted about
To tell stories to
Our senses.

We listened
We listened
In the sunset glow

And magnolia too.

There were many
Madmen, in company
Madmen, in company
In a distressed summer

Drops of us
Drops of us
On the fountain

And magnolia too.

Leaves fluttered,
Strums of a dusky
Strums of a dusky
Love, under wraps

Put away
Put away
In a breath, afflicted.

And magnolia too.

And I saw
And I saw
The train of life

Curling towards us
In a fallen poem
In a fallen poem
At an inauspicious hour.
