The Rain Wont Stop


after some days of freedom
from the raging rain that falls
it is back in earnest crying
as its full might unfold
hearts of steel are challenged
to keep all that it can hold

and into the night the drops
still fall
drenching the already
drowning soul
there is no hope of reprieve
for poor prisoners on hold

    A beautiful epic poem. The lines dropp so naturally and are presented nicely through a simple, yet interesting rhyme. Good write. Thank you for sharing.

    ...drenching the already
    drowning soul......

    confusing. Drowning soul! Soul itself an abstract entity....when it is drowning, another abstract is necessary to hold the content. So many abstracts can not be imagined by the human conscious at a time for brooding. Otherwise well written. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
