A Far-Off Song


Each moment that I'm pulled out of the dark, I wish I could extinguish the light.
Yet some nights my eyes linger past the shade to the sunshine,
and my soul dances feverishly to a merry song far off,
and my heart barks at me like an anxious dog, come alive.

    There is so much emotion in your lines, as though long pent up and now exploding with new freedom..very much alive, enjoyable reading, going along for the ride.. (Report) Reply

    your whole past is concealed behind these four lines. Obsecurity itself is beautiful making the readers not feeling bored. I hope, the next bark of your anxious heart will
    bring a change. A great poem. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
