I have attempted a double etheree.

A,

Lonely,

Soul walks sad,

On untread paths,

Iridescent swirl,

Shading misty carnage,

That would cause it so much pain,

It followed the heart’s tested trail,

That led it to its shady cloister,

A secluded dear niche only its own.

What now remained of the lush verdant tree,

A dismal stunt,a grim epitaph,

Paying homage to treasure lost,

Heart numbed in the snowy wild,

Tears masked in a vague pain,

Melting the cold snow,

Seething in angst,

Its idyll,

Defiled,

So.
