The Scream

The second poem in a series of responses to the Images in Art TY Module. This poem, by Robbie Hollis, is prompted by Edvard Munch's famous 'The Scream'.

'The Scream', by Robbie Hollis

Two men in dark clothes
Sneak up from behind
The flame red sky.
A river blends with the marbled horizon,
And creates rolling blue mountains.
The skeletal figure,
As if knowing what is to come
Is frozen, in an everlasting scream.
