Black out

The sun has not risen today
The grasses did not have dews,
The flowers did not bloom today
Since they couldn't see -
My beloved's smiling face.

Moon is not casting
Any of her light today,
The stars did not arrive
To blink in the sky today.

The whole sky is covered
With a pitch dark blanket.
How can they celebrate
While the princess is deep asleep! !

    A poignant, melancholic poem that touched my heart deeply. Hoping you find your inner light soon, I don't like to see you so sad. Really great poem, Amitava. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
