PAD 21: Tonight, Doves Cry

Today’s prompt is to respond to (or communicate with) another poem. In light of the death of Prince today, I chose his song “When Doves Cry” to respond to. Rest in peace, Prince.

Tonight, Doves Cry


The world is sadder tonight

As it rains purple tears.


How could you leave us standing here?


But not alone in the world.

You left us with your words, your music,

Your art.


Yet, we are not satisfied.

Perhaps we are too demanding, but

We wish you here instead of having

Joined that illustrious celestial band.
