Poetic Forms: The Elegy

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

An elegy is a song of sorrow or mourning. Though traditionally these are written for people we know that have passed away, poets have written elegies for many different kinds of loss, sorrow, and mourning. Write an elegy of your own. What in your life is the greatest point of sorrow? What has given you your most recent reason to mourn? Do you have an understanding of loss that comes with losing a loved one or is your concept of loss based around something else?

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
