Uncertain –A Certain


O my pearl! Why ye keepeth the dew?
Through you I see the beautiful world
How can I see? It is totally blurred

My thought! Fetch some lovely dream to face
That must kindle a spark within my darkness,
My torn dream that must sew!

Stars and Heaven with bright dark canopy!
Laugh not on me, it’s a childish mirth
I know, it is known to me since my birth.

And moon! Like a highwayman, you mislead
Stop mesmerizing me, not a warn but a plead
Don’t make Love a word of deceit, a Sham


Spark of sun alone will kill you all
My fate! You must remove the curtain,
Wanted to make uncertain –a certain

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
