To Wilfred Owen - My Favorite Poet - Poem by krishnakumar chandrasekar nair

I still fervently grieve for you
You who could wield a gun
And tenderly also a poetic pen
To write such soulful verse
That no man can read today
Without a moist eye, tear or two
On words, inspired by dark cold trenches
With bleeding wounds and goodbye's said
And you went far too early from your youth
Taking with you a treasure the world will never know
Of so many gems that lay inert in your secret chambers
Unwritten, Unsung as the dirty war laid you low.......

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Owen has always been my favorite poet. I can't imagine what heights he would have reached had he lived a normal span. His early demise is an irrevocable loss to the world of verse.
