PIERROT IN PENSIVE MOOD

Posted by Admin on Sunday, 25th June 2006, 00:00

Contemplative by casement seated,
Selina’s crescent form his Muse,
Pierrot by harsh life defeated,
butt of Harlequin’s abuse,
longs to play more gallant roles –
hates his ‘talent to amuse’.
Spectral white his clown’s attire,
save for pom-poms and skull-cap,
black as these his thoughts most dire,
reliving every baton slap.
At his nadir this clear night,
thwarted love must aye repine,
mourning loss of love’s delight –
the scorn of heartless Columbine.

And black as widow’s weeds
Grimalkin with the glow-worm eyes
keeps guard beside his chair.
