A Messege


The answer came
From up above high
The messenger who brought it
Was shinning so bright
She gave me the letter
And smiled sadly to me
She said it’s the answer
Which I appealed
I took the letter
With trembling hands
Slowly tenderly
I opened it with despair
Peeling away like a shell
Like breaking open my fate
My life ended in these few lines
“O dear child
we sent you in this world
sent you to weep to cry
we forgot to make someone
who could be close to you
but now it’s too late
to make a new”

    But each one can smile
    And laugh it away,
    Just as you are doing
    And make your own way. (Report) Reply

    This was touching and sad. We as mortals have so many questions that can't be answered here on earth. Do we trust have faith and carry on till the time comes for answers. Yes in my opinion, blind faith.. all his children will be taken care of in time. (Report) Reply

    I can consider the first part of this poem a very good depiction of the “Annunciation” and very up to date in its setting. A lot of good imagination. If I were an artist this scene would be worthwhile to paint. I would understand that the last part of the poem, “O dear child....” applies to your personal situation or could be understood to fit all those children who fall into this category. This really touches one’s heart to cry for all of them. This leads one to ask the question of the creator. “Why couldn’t you put a little more thought into what you were doing? ” (Report) Reply

    My life ended in these few lines
    “O dear child
    we sent you in this world
    sent you to weep to cry
    we forgot to make someone
    who could be close to you
    but now it’s too late
    to make a new” Wonderful, very nice, I love it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
