Dissembling Regrets

Life’s winter brings its frost bite to our hair.
It cools, perhaps, the heady wine that flows
Within our veins, our life-blood’s hidden lair,
But naught but death can give it that repose
That stops the roaming ghosts of memories
That rise to haunt the restless spirits, who
Have in youth’s wild impetuosities
Neglected for one moment to be true
To one to whom they owe their plight of troth;

[Hata Bildir]
