Chitarra Romana~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Chitarra Romana

 

(Roman Guitar)

stolen strings

found in coffins

of heartbreak

river melody

carries the ache

washes stones

among bones

of dead love

purpled shadows

accompanied

sadly by sighs

serenading the

irony worn by

a fountain gone

silent a balcony

empty forlorn

that a dying a

cold lonesome

lasting cessation

could happen

in this the grand

city eternal the

only voice heard

from this once

happy man is his

weeping guitar
