Vienna’s Love Cemetery

Vienna’s Love Cemetery

Here is the place
           where the stone fell
silent as the grave
           Here love died
along with the music
           and the laughter
and was laid to rest
           No longer legible
the letters carved
           in sandstone
all flaking
           all gone to dust
The once living
           body of love
gone to dust
           every sweet kiss
gone to dust
           all time to dust

John Lyons
