Letter From Italy


Along the letter's passages
sentences and words
though I read with eagerness,
compiling all the items she's sent,
to find four simple words
which she has forgotten to send
with ship full of merchandise, as usual.
Hopelessly beaten I sat on floor,
as years I have waited
for her to return
Yet:
She has forgotten my age and size
as well as to say
"I love you son"

    Very sad the pain indeed. An excellent writ. Lucid but much penetrative. Little lines but it has crossed a distance through the time. Unique....Yet I tell, mother / father reminds his/her son....the cry is matcheless......Pranab k c 10+++ (Report) Reply

    Very sad from the perspective of a child. Strong write indeed. Lucid but much penetrative. Little lines but so long distance it crossed through the time. Excellent...........................Yet I have to tell, mother reminds her baby, this cry is matchless...........................................................Pranab k c 10+++ (Report) Reply

    Very touching, because I know money or gifts can never Compensate for a parent love or hugs and kisses, but if they only knew that.... (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
