Bayou Entanglements

Near the waters of the Bayvou,

Two lovers fell in love.

The sun gave witness to their union

Much like a best man from above.

The wind  echoed their vows.

The birds announced them wed.

The banks of the Bayou were their chapel.

The grass served as their wedding bed.

 

The hounds cried out with echoes.

The horses announced their approach.

The voices of men spewed evil words.

The entangled lovers seen as a reproach.

His ebony hue hovered over her alabaster body.

His tears touched her skin and heart.

They remained wrapped together.

Their form seemed like a work of art.

 

The wind howled with sadness.

The trees hung their limbs low.

The birds no longer sang.

Now the moon sat aglow.

The banks of the Bayou were their chapel.

The grass was their wedding bed.

The woman wept in torment

For the one hung and left for dead.
