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,
Yet, we are not satisfied.
Perhaps we are too demanding, but
We wish you here instead of having
Joined that illustrious celestial band.
