Magpie On The Gallows

~CliveBarker (https://www.deviantart.com/clivebarker)    Written by: CliveBarker (https://www.deviantart.com/clivebarker) Magpie on the Gallows High above my head, Tell me truly, maggot–pie, Is my lover dead? When he went away to war, To me eternal love he swore Tell me truly, bird of gloom, Where his bed and what his doom? From the gallows hear the magpie screech: From now on your lover’s out of reach. In a bed of mud he died Soldiers slept at either side, He has never been faithless dear, And never will be now, I fear. Magpie on the Gallows Feathered white and black, My brother went a–hunting Will he not come back? He was tall and he was strong, Face was fair and limb was long. Tell me truly,

My Bio
Once asked by an interviewer what he wanted (besides his name) on his tombstone, Clive Barker replied 'Imaginer'. Imagination is the force that brings his work as a painter into being and the fuel that sustains the creative process.

Imaginer? Maybe an imagineer.
Your poetry is mindblowing!!!
Wait, wait, wait. The Clive Barker has a presence here? Though I would feel more appreciative to have an IRL meet at a convention, but this is nice seeing you here.
You're one of the greatest writers ever
Wow, an actual celebrity's DA page! I met Neil Gaiman once in San Francisco, a few years back. If either of you ever decide to do a collaboration, I would be thrilled!
