Barren Gale


A Cold war
Or
A cold peace
Still
Dying
Still
Fighting
S till
Vanishing
The hope
Still
Betting
On that
Green
Money
The glory
Isn’t the gold
That gorilla war
Isn’t a game
What a grain
U will gain
Coffin and groan
So greedy
Barren gale
So gloomy
That goal

    It can be interpreted on symbolic level...sad and gloomy depicting hopessness and sensitivity of the poet towards surrounding. (Report) Reply

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
