Discovery


I remember well
that enchanting moment
when Fate got kind to me
and gave me a chance
to discover You in me,
then, at once, I found You
in my isolation,
my thoughts and my dreams-
dreams that got rich...
since then, I remained
no longer isolated
in my isolation...

    When we find ourselves in others, we no longer remain isolated in isolation! ! A small thought big enough to conquer very many hearts! ! A priceless moment of a great discovery either personal or philosophical! ! (Report) Reply

    Solitude becomes bliss and we are not alone when we discover someone in ourselves, a romantic piece written straight from heart.

    I deeply felt the words of this poem as you became filled with the presence
    of another's spirit, or a spiritual awakening. Very nobly written. (Report) Reply

    Poems when they begin with a whisper and engulf the reader to end wid a music is a rare and real discovery. Enchanting! (Report) Reply

    ''you'' is ''God'' or the love one? the protagonist must be your loved one as the poetess says '' fate got kind to me ''
    it could not be the god as the God Himself is the creator of your fate, so the poem is very romantic.....whoever is the loved one she or he / sun or daughter, or any one.............................................. (Report) Reply

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
