Dear Diary 021914


dear diary

there is something very, very strange i must tell you,
yesterday, when i was walking on a path through the forest
i saw my love fluttering above, whoosh right over my head
there was a noise, a tree branch snapping, and my love fled
so i looked deeper into the forest. and i saw him landing
by one of the many tall pines, yes this was yesterday afternoon
i called to him, love it’s me your true love please come back soon.
then i saw he was followed by another bird, and i saw this was her
the enchantress all dressed in black, as black as a moonless night
I thought to myself, i will have to vanquish this evil with my light
i could only watch as my love went up into the air, and flew away
through the quiet snowy forest, a midnight raven followed him closely

    the story of beauty and love is partly true and partly imagination. Both are necessary for a beautiful creation. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
