Height


My father
And father
Of my father
All Spent
Their life
At the bottom
Of a tall hill
They never tried
to be atop it
Once curiously
I climbed up
On the hill
And was stunned
To watch things
Around there
And also truth
Dawned on me that
It is only from
On the height that
One can capture
The full view
Of anything;
Even of life.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
