The Cemetery

poem by: Christopher Russon
Written on Apr 25, 2016

I cannot describe this feeling
Of complete tranguility 
Where the sweet birds sing
And the church bells ring
As I stroll within this cemetery.

My imagination running wild
I thought I saw a woman
Then I thought I saw a child.
There was the sound of laughter
But no one to be found.

This is just my imagination
They are asleep beneath the ground.

People think cemeteries are creepy. This is a peaceful way to look at it. Very good poem

Maybe it's acceptance that leads to tranquillity for me in a cemetery, which you conveyed so well in this Christopher.
