A Micro Poem Challenge

Death and Life ~ Gustav Klimt
Sisters, Mothers 

Sisters of day 
Play with your brothers 
Play as you may 
Daredevils training they 

Day comes too soon 

Bold brothers become 
Enjoy your swoon 
Show your love became 

Mothers at night 

Mourning for brothers
_ _ _

Oh the day is the murderous time, the mourning at night. Repetitions well used in you chant.

That last line is heartbreaking... better listen to the ones that come before. ♥

The last two lines in particular are wonderful.

I like where the poem leads, to those last two lines, which really stand out for me.

A light-hearted start leading to a sad ending - that's life (sometimes)

I, too, was most struck by your two closing lines.

'Twas ever thus – more's the pity. You do well to remind us.

It seems this is spoken too often.
