Why days are so deep and dark?


Why days are so deep and dark
And nights are lovely and bright?
What we lost? Where is the lark?
What game is on, why there a fright?

Why moon, looks like a highway-man
And stars stood like a silence observer?
Did heaven lose its heavenly sight? No,
Human lost the humanity; search, go..

What use of these eyes with lost vision!
Not humanity, we have to go for revision

    The questions bounce back and we often ask questions and seldom answer others.

    Days are still bright and our Earth, though not as beautiful as before is still beautiful; but to our jaundiced eye everything looks yellow. So the problem lies with our perception of things! A good philosophical poem! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
