Today, a poem on threnody, which is a song of mourning, from Greek θρηνῳδία.
A wail, a wave, a melody,
a singing throng, a mourning song,
a lilt of loss, a threnody,
enthralling, throttling, memory
relief and peace of grief release,
a pyre of choir, a threnody,
the seamstress of humanity
to rip the skin and stitch within,
a thread, a threat, a threnody.
