Treasure Island

A. Z. M. M. Moksedul Milon


A Wilting Tree


I am a tree of despair,
Stark naked in this winter,
With all my leaves of happiness gone;
You are a cruel villager,
Collecting and burning them
To warm yourself with a fire.

I wouldn't mind losing all my foliage
If it could make a fire
To burn your heart to a charcoal;
And then you would have to seek
All the sap of my heavenly love
To cool and care your burns.

I wouldn't mind losing all my blossoms
If they could produce a smell
To poison you to love;
And then you would have to seek
The juice of my passion
To counteract your indecision.

I wouldn't mind if all my branches withered
To touch your silky black hair,
Rosy cheek and coral red amorous lips;
I would then be immortal,
With no winter but all spring;
But then you would surely be lost again.

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
