APED: "eurydice"

mkcs requested a poem about Eurydice.

Through the cavern, up to sunlight,
from the darkness. Show the way.
Love, keep singing. Lead me onward.
Take up the kithara. Play.
Don't believe that you've been cheated.
Charon whispered that. He lies.
His only pleasure. Love, don't heed it.
Look forward, now. Keep fixed your eyes.
I'd speak to you if they'd allow it.
They don't. So I wish. Nothing more.
Keep faith in me. You've never doubted.
Never once, at least, before.
The entrance nears -- it's warm, the sunlight!
Strange, the dead don't feel the lack.
The outside world. Oh, what a sight!
We're almost there, love. Don't look --
