Through Generations


I gave my life little contemplation
but with the proper deliberation,
I came up with very deep conviction
I owe much to the Lord of Creation.

I met men of my own generation,
shared with them a life of much elation,
so many of them their habitation
on this earth now have had its cessation.

The ripe fruits of their cohabitation
with the partners of their own selection
now have taken over their position,
share with me their life’s continuation.

I thought my life’s discontinuation
Soon comes after few more earth’s rotation,
but, beyond my wildest expectation,
still I am here much in contention.

So glad I am beyond explanation
over my life’s seeming prolongation,
I live with very much satisfaction
with each of my gone friend’s third edition.

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
