GOODBYE   (an Elegy)

Goodbye to the garden flowers, dying from the heat.

Goodbye to the common garden birds, we used to like to feed.

Farewell to the little flies and bugs, which lived within our seasons.

We will mourn and miss you all, for selfish childish reasons.

Global warming has touched your ordinary worlds


An Elegy is a mournful poem; or a lament for the dead
