A Rondel For Olivia


She smiles at the mirror, eyes blue as the sky
Dreaming of Paris and faraway places
Of people she’ll meet, their stories, their faces

    Sometimes I find myself wondering what the future will hold...wondering whether I will ever be completely happy. I catch myself being sad when there is nothing to be sad about. I only wish this poem was more raw. But the words in it speak to me and I think that if we all evaluate our lives we could identify with this piece. Its a reminder to enjoy what phase of my life I have right now because it will never come back and I will never be the same again. There is no use in pining for the future because it is bound to come. (Report) Reply

    Beautifully written with superb flow and rhyme. It's sad how we can wish away our lives not actually enjoying the now of time. Is she wishing away her childhood instead of enjoying being a child? (Report) Reply

    Wow, I know she is as beautiful as this poem, and so I might add, 'and may all the angels protect her blue eyes'. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
