Get Ready To Weep Tears Of Sorrow

Get ready to weep teams of sorrow

Get ready to weep tears of sorrow

as bright as the brightest beads,

and like the bright beads you string

to wear round your throat at the burial,

gather your tears and string them

on a thread of your memory to wear around

your heart or its schatterad fragments

will never come whole again.

Laurens van der Post, from Flamingo Feather
