School-Age Psychopomp

I recently read a very moving poem by PeriodicFable. I felt a strong connection to the poem and needed to express that connection in some verse of my own.

From a technical standpoint, I like to think of this poem as a semi-sonnet. The line structure is the same as in a Shakespearean sonnet, but I opted to release it from the usual rhyme scheme. I did try rhyming but felt the result interfered with the mood.

If you would like to read the poem this is a response to (and you should), you can find it here: A little less conversation
