Can anyone be that sad all the time?

Greta Grief

by RodG

Personification of an Emotion poem Contest Winner 
No sadder person does exist
than melancholy Greta Grief.
She whimpers, wails hysterically;
her tears are shed without relief.

If someone died, she's at the wake,
a sobbing, sympathetic peer
whose white lace hanky's always soaked,
whose heartfelt sorrow is sincere.

A grave site's where she mostly dwells
if she's not weeping in a pew.
On bended knee with hands clasped high
she cries aloud for all she knew.

A handsome woman in her time,
her face now haggard, drawn from tears
has swollen eyes a vague blue hue
and mouth stretched shapeless over years.

A cheerless lady dressed in black,
Miss Greta has no living friends.
Since those she loved were slain in war,
her plaintive grieving never ends.
