Treasure Island

Kesav Venkat Easwaran

(June 5th / Palghat- Kerala- India)

A Midnight Song...

A midnight song was floating on,
My dream was watching on;
To reach it out, to sleep it on
How longed my mind forlorn!

A midnight song was pouring on,
My thirst was hoping on;
To drink it sweet, to feel it soft
How longed my heart forlorn!

A midnight song was raining on,
Misty meadows drench on;
Amidst I saw you coming down
To quench my love you on!

    you write most beautiful pieces sir..
    i v seen in the site, many lady poets write about love and affection while, older people like you write thought provoking serious stuff.... I d say you a great poet, who writes from the heart and these expressions are very beautiful indeed....
    I enjoyed this one..

    with lovesss

    Musically Mystical - you are an inspiration. Moving from one poem to another - the waiting inbetween exciting, the end rewarding.Thank you for this pleasure (Report) Reply

    The song is really good. Rather then saying 'A midnight Song' it can be a 'My Love Song'. The rhyming and rhythm is well captured hear. Beautiful work. (Report) Reply

    Age seems to have no problems for you....mentally agile and...virile! ! !
    The imagery's strong enough to call it beyond imagination alone...

    Live on..

How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
