Best Poem of Derrick Hubert Schnabel

Belinda

sonnet #19

Belinda

i would not have you, Belinda, in darkness sit,
on days like this, my hand clasped in hand dead,
remembering sadly your fragrant bed –
each moment therein, what joy we had of it.
rather, while still our lights though dimmed were lit,
bid friends to the parties that once we planned,
happy all the time! until to the dust’s demand,
your soul, not mine, did separately submit.

so, when i come (for you at last will call
and i shall hear and linger not at all) ,
still to your throat, your arms, your loosened hair
will cling ...

Read the full of Belinda

Thanks

sonnet #10
thanks


grateful for meaning i can breathe
thankful too for this life itself
because i gave i can receive
that given returns to me

[Hata Bildir]
