Roses Will Sing


***Note: This piece was meant to be untitled, 'Roses Will Sing' is merely a placeholder as PH does not allow untitled works.

Sunlight drips through the canopy
staining the grass below

Such golden, honey-coloured tears
splash against the mottled leaves
and seep into the ground,
cast over by cool, damp shadows;

b r e a t h e

The soft, dank earth welcomes
the new beginning
when songbirds will blossom
and roses will sing

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
