Trifextra: “Choir”


“In Memory”

The CHOIR mourns

John Kennedy.

The CHOIR sings

of lilies free.

The CHOIR longs

for Camelot.

Reverberates

along the walls

the City Book

near tree-lined halls

of Dallas streets

a single bullet.

(Trifextra Prompt: use single word of your choice 3 times.)

(written for the 50th Anniversary of Kennedy Assassination 22 Nov, 1963)

    Very poignant. I think we mourn JFK for so many reasons. But mostly, maybe for what he could have done…

    This was a beautiful 33-word passage. I believe that the world mourns Kennedy everyday.
    Excellent use of the prompt đŸ˜€

    Terrific poem. I’m really taken with ‘the choir longs for Chamelot’.
