Kalamos And Karpos

Kalamos and Karpos:
Two young lovers who chose
to swim
With an ending quite grim
Or a romantic whim
so dark
That history would mark
Their love story too stark
to tell
Without a myth to quell
All that did not go well
for they
Took part in a foray
On a lovely Spring day
so warm
That they would find no harm
To brave the water’s charm
in depth
But failed to gauge the breadth
So Karpos lost his breath
and drowned
Kalamos’ heart frowned
For it could not expound
more woe
And so he chose to go
Under where he could show
his love
But the powers above
Found he fit like a glove,
Turned him into a reed
Where a sigh of concede
is heard
