Maria Barbara Korynt


a legend remains in the memory


you are humming a melody
under the nose
whom you remember so well the past
is returning with refrain
copied repeatedly for so many years
for the contractor followers
are taking turns

and nobody not yet was able
to achieve that precision
didn't catch the prototype up
because the king
was one like of him
is are you lonsome tonight?
and no longer will be first

legends always remain
in our memory
it isn't possible the same
to repeat at least nothing
unless at one time then again
we will rise from the chaos
in order to sing and..... to love

    Beautiful poem. The title itself is a meaningful line. The poem is aromatic with the sweet bitter essence of life. Sometimes a chaos is inevitable to re-born or to rise. Last two lines are wonderful and uplift the whole poem......10/10.
    Best Regards.
