THE MUSINGS OF A LOVER


As he was walking in the shadow of a dozing tree,
His moon beamed touching his face
Then he remembered her, his love
As one who came to his door step long before.

HE often said to her, 'Oh, Angel'let's share the life,
And he made promises to bring fragrance from the skies.
They wanted to weave dreams of co webs
In their castle of promises and sighs.

But she laughed without trusting him
And she wanted to be with someone taller sooner
Who would ransack her unveiled frame often
And they were both relegated to woman and man.

Then, a new civilization emerged in her world
And it mingled in the soil of her lust and despair.
Today she is silent and silent
Like the sky that has seen storms many.

As he returned from his walk, he saw a monstrous cloud
That savoured his moon and he looked dull.
Then he remembered her his lost love
As one who could have gone to her man`s door step first.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
