Treasure Island

Alancia Lebogang Mogorosi

(11/01/89 / South Africa< Mpumalanga)

Flower


Will you thy beautiful
Thy pleasant with fragrant posies
My flower in the garden
Stain on my face tears; morrow

I with my raining eyes
Water you to grow
Have I no harvest, but thorn
To stuck my fingers

My white flower in the garden
Shall you alter from pure?
Me don’t know, thy fragrant posies
Shall alter to rod

Look you when my tears have fallen
You cry amber studs
Birds are delighted and sing madrigals
Will thine pleasure, last till morrow

    I understand, generally speaking what the poem says. But it doesn't have to be so complicated to understand. The words individually, may be beautiful. But it is
    not the beautiful word that makes poetry, it is the conbination of words and their
    clarity of meaning.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
