If, in its due time, each temporal thing
Should take itself to fly, on spectral wing,
Away from places that memories reach,
Fading into that melancholy breach
That is the absence of living recall—
If nothing rises but that it should fall
Into oblivion when none are left
To remember that once, this tree bereft
Of fruit and leaves, in its living hour,
Boasted many a sweet-smelling flower—
If naught is gained by the passage of time
Save the gloomy turn of this very rhyme—
Is love, then, as meaningless and as bare
As unseen phantoms in the empty air?
NaPoWriMo day #1. Prompt: carpe diem.

You should be proud of this one. I'm not sure how it really stacks up compared to most rhyming poetry, but I think it's likely publishable, so you may want to look into that :)
