- Arcanum Bride - Poem by Georgios Venetopoulos

A golden ring of oaths and solitaire
resound of steeling knell and windy call;
angelical her face in streams of air;
my recklessness escorted on our knoll.

She fled amid the gray - transformed to drops;
above the fields consenting in her clouds;
Amid the dusky shades of tall tree tops,
Imparted lives, my solitude's fog shrouds;

Arcane her call, inviting knell, the bride
around my sentiments, henceforth, she orb'd,
a quilt of nimbus covered me and cried,
my life became a bird, the skies absorbed.

She stared at me from far beyond, in dark;
unreal, she fled above the ringing field
with trumpets Angels pledged my ghostly barque
that with betrothal vows, in Styx distilled.

In Acheronian lakes my spirit gleamed;
with thousand drops of rain where tears belong
she fled above the misty shroud, redeemed,
and crowned noctilucent moon's waxing wrong.

    After reading you I honestly thought, I won't write anymore. Where is the need for me to compose any of my own... when the world has your finest of works to read and to cherish.
    Really, can I do it the way you put those profound emotions in your lines? no. At best I can take them through a magical or dream like journey. But that something piercing in your words and the depth you can reach... Oh, Giorgio.. no, I can't!
    How each time I'm carried away by your words and verse.. and your beautiful soul! (Report) Reply
