Poem: Pathos 

Pathos

Wet your tongue and try, try to sing again
Please work the muscles in your throat to song
Gasp not the sound that signifies the end

As all things pass; of now, and still of then
With power to grant life, not old but long
Wet your tongue and try, try to sing again

So I may hear and thus remember when
As all memories find where they belong
Gasp not the sound that signifies the end.
