    One of my all time most favorite poetesses.

    The best I have seen for long, good poetic understanding and structure, content without direct preaching. Pleasure to read.


I could find no poetry in your soul;
I couldn’t teach your heart to sing;
You wouldn’t let my spirit fly;
And so I stand here on the moonlit beach
With icy water at my feet
And whistling wind around my ears.
With sad relief, I toss the ashes
Of our might-have-beens
Into the air, and as I do,

[Hata Bildir]
