Orpheus - Poem by Tsira Gogeshvili

Breezes expect now our moon...
That to tell him evening gossips...
Moon, with hope searches the suns...
On the heart plays with melancholy
As on the harp Orpheus...

    'Moon, with hope searches the suns'. Good imagery. I think this about someone having burning desire for love of another. Great write! (Report) Reply

    Breeze plays rough to hide harp of Orpheus. Oscar appears to hunt attention. And melancholy really pushing to close the window. Will try to read next time. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    Tsira
    This looks translated. Is English a second language? I love the images but I don't see all of the intent the way that it flows.

    A great composition Tsira.
    Moon searches sun, as Orpheus Eurydice…
    Orpheus of cowardice for not being prepared to die for Eurydice…

    Poor Orpheus in his darkness, like the moon searching the sun for the light of his lost love. Beautifully written. (Report) Reply

    excellent I have just been to the opera to Orpheus and Eurodice and I am trying to write a poem about Elektra
    So in your honour I will dedicate the poem when completed but for now the opening a
    To the alter of death you would not offend the Thunderer RAGE-ATHENA, SING THE RAGE OF ELEKTRA DAUGHTER OF CURSED ARGAMEMNON RAPIST MURDERER AND THE Sacker of cities
    RAGE HESTIA AGAINST THE MURDEROUS HOUSE OF ATREUS
    DAMMED THRICE BY ARTEMIS, APPOLLO AND FINALLY BY
    THE IMMORTAL ZEUS HIMSELF
    BEGIN MUSE WITH THE SLAYING OF ARTIMISES FAVORITE STAG
    AND THE PRICE PAID BY IPHEGENIA FOR HER FATHERS ARROGANCE

    Why! ! Argamemnon did you slay the stag of Artimis
    Did phoebus Appollo take awy your sight
    Fool amongst men Who when dependent on the will of the gods
    Would deprive Artimis of the Golden Deer
    Whom in her rage deprived you of whom you desired most
    The beautiful Ipheginea snatched from the sacrificial alter
    By Diana and transported to Naxos
    Breaker of Oaths did you not think that by luring the fair brested Iphigania with the false promise of marriage to the Demi God Achillies
    Would go unpunished?
