    ... violets fade,
    spring waters soon run dry,
    this life too is transient #
    He stood by the door, / calling through the evening.....Much..Much...Much to communicate. (Report) Reply

    Yosana Akiko is one of the great lyric voices of the 20th century. In this poem she connects so many lives - birds, trees, people, desires, hopes, bitter truths. All of these live through her burning imagination, one fired by erotic passion and sustained by desires of the heart. (Report) Reply

    Violets fade
    New violets come
    Our loves were violets once
    Now its all gone and love is done (Report) Reply
