Why


Why am I getting muter and muter
While the birds are chirping cheerfully?
I wouldn’t say
Though there’s in my heart something to say obviously.

Why am I, step by step, stepping backward,
While the creeks are gurgling all the way in glee forward?
There’s clearly a desire to go to the opposite rivage, yet
I dare not cross the rivulet

Utterly exhausted
I touch the lonesomeness of the hours of darkness,
I pretend to beam
But stubbornly down my tears stream
Unversed
The finest verse remain
For Muse has ceased
With me to honor.
What on earth
Went wrong?
Why excitement and happiness
Come to me no longer?

Time after time
I ask,
This answerless question
that becomes the last rhyme.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
