Upon the Death of Sir Albert Morton`s Wife

by Sir Henry Wooton (1568-1639)

He first deceased; she for a little tried

To live without him, liked it not, and died.

Just as a picture is said to be worth a thousand words so can a few well chosen words paint a picture. Poetry is not easy to write; but in considering and agonizing over crafting the perfect poem too much can be said when a bare, stripped down version could convey more. With just a dozen or so words, each one becomes vitally important. I love short poems because they usually surprise, delight and enlighten the darkness and free us from unnecessary verbage.
