BE-LATED BIRTHDAY DIRGE - Dark Poetry for the Cruellest Month, 2016 (Day 2)

Embarrassingly late, first I needed to research what a 'dirge' was... I had thought it was something soft & brown you wiped off your shoe before walking it through the house, but instead it proved much harder (& more colourful) than I originally thought... This is dedicated to Wicked Magaly who is running this incredible month of 'Dark Poetry' and a most forgiving friend.

Youth has dissipated, each year she's wiser and older
Grey hairs & time ages, no matter, on she will soldier
Mango juice guzzled from goblets, toasting gluttony (of approved foods) to the max,
The candle lit Dominion Cake now swims in wax
Gifts of moon daisies, green frogs for her brew,
Let's all raise our hammers and sing Magaly her due

In the tradition of the Viking Dirge...
as the moon rose and the partiers fell...
It is time now, to bid you farewell ;)

I love the rhyming opposite words in the brackets! A most worthy dirge!

Rommy said...

LOL, most excellent - I think she'll get a huge kick out of it.

I should've known better than to be drinking coffee when I'm reading anything written by you. And I should've taken special precautions because this is a dirge. But know, there I was sipping my yummy sweet and hot libation, when I read "Mango juice guzzled from goblets, toasting gluttony (of approved foods) to the max."

There is coffee everywhere. I hope you're happy. Because I sure am!

Thank you, my dear Shelle! ♥♥♥

Oh goodness, I forgot to say how much I love the painting. Perfect. I would live there if I could.

This is great!!! I also had to read to find out what a birthday dirge was as I'd never heard of one. It was fun and enjoyable to read. Amazing painting as well.
