A sigh

ONCE I put a sigh in the heart of the Moon

That sigh is still there

So when the dawn comes
The Moon sighs
With her, sigh All the Stars
In a blinking eye of a moaning heart
With hearts so heavy for the sky
Drops of dews from her tears
Carry that sigh to the world

I hear that sigh
When the wind rustles over the maiden river
I feel the sigh from the womb of a flower
When her last fragrance melts into the careless air
And a lover's dream is broken

    Shamik, This is a nice poem, and your first and penultimate lines have wonderful imagery, so much so that these lines tell a story of their own and can be enjoyed as delightful word arrangements in their own right. John T (Report) Reply

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
