All Day I Hear the Noise of Waters


All day I hear the noise of waters
Making moan,
Sad as the sea-bird is when, going
Forth alone,
He hears the winds cry to the water's
Monotone.

The grey winds, the cold winds are blowing
Where I go.
I hear the noise of many waters
Far below.
All day, all night, I hear them flowing
To and fro.

    Interesting rhyme scheme. I may give it a go. I doubt it's surreal. He lived in Ireland. (Report) Reply

    Fantastic hallucination appearing from the soul indeed. Actually philosophy guides us sometimes to live on subconscious, perhaps. Flowing Water is the symbol of ceaseless life-force. The man or any artist who can touch this soil by his meditation.... this can happen to a personality, perhaps.....I feel it's a su-real writing. Good post...................................Pranab k c (Report) Reply
