Winter in Delft


I fall in love with my
beautiful winter in Delft
It's myself
I was there in winter of Delft
I would love to be there
And I wished I could be there
To share with you winter of myself

Wasn't it long ago
I walked with you in winter of Delft
I would love to be there
I wished I could
To whisper you a winter of love
from deep in myself

The white snow of winter in Delft
Cotton-like snow, the blanket of Delft
The purity of love, white winter in there
Wait...wait darling I wanna kiss you
with a warm winter from myself

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I lived in Amsterdam and Delft many years ago with winter around. I also spent some time in UK and Germany. Recently my beloved family Joyce and Theo sent me some pictures of Delft in winter time which was part of myself. They remind me some streets I passed by and the old buildings and the house I used to stay. I wished I could return to whisper Joyce a winter of myself-a winter of love.

I was writing this poem when I was again photographing the pictures into myself and said to me myself, when shall I return to see my beloved old days and old friends and could it be? Perhaps it can't but it can be with writing a piece of poem to my beloved friend Joyce who is still living in Delft. This poem is dedicated to both Joyce and Theo as my beloved friends.

This poem is written in Jakarta in my house, with all my mind and heart return to Delft, to the streets and old buildings in Delft.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
