The Visage

Alex Mascarenhas's picture

Author: 

 
I saw a face, you see
This face I saw today
It dwelt in yesterday
 
And they looked out to the world
Looked out, the eyes in the face
All is still there, yet sans grace
 
But no, no, it’s a lovely visage
No, it does not lack in charm at all
Something’s missing, though, behind a shawl
 
I knew this face well
A face from the past
The face, the outcast
 
The spark not in the eyes
The face I saw was sad
The soul not more green-clad
 
I was sad the face was sad
I think back of times of awe
I don’t know the face I saw
 
Don’t recognize what I behold
And I know not before my eyes
I see a smiley face that cries
