Best Poem of Valerie Dohren

A Walk Through Paradise

I close my eyes to find a place
In different time and different space
And in imagination find
A cloistered arbour for my mind
Where thought may there be unconfined

Then in my dreams a path I take
As in a trance, yet wide awake,
To see the world with open eyes
Its glist`ning sands and azure skies -
I take a walk through Paradise

Suspended there reflecting deep
Where time is lost, immersed in sleep,
A sleep of ages long since passed
As on the sea of change were cast
All things which then were reckoned fast

Above all earthly cares to ...

Read the full of A Walk Through Paradise

I

Her breast was warm and tender was her face
Secure was I within her long embrace
Protected from the pain of human care
It seemed that I was ever part of her

But then I stirred awakened by the dawn
The time had come at last and I was born
The sun shone brighter than I`d seen before
I looked around and she was there no more

[Hata Bildir]
