Beside My Grave- Michael Erickson

Photo by Michael Erickson

Stand here quiet beside my grave,

‘Neath shadowed pines and maples gray.

Hear my whispers beneath the stone,

Twisted round roots full grown.

A secret kept for a hundred years,

Preys upon your deepest fears.

Lay your hand upon my name,

Dripping sweet of blood unclaimed.

Let me rise with rotten bloom,

To bring forth creation’s boone.

Howl once, twice, three times more,

Calling forth forgotten lore.

Come close and listen hear me rave,

Stand here quiet by my grave.
