Treasure Island

Gulsher john


bride of the sky


Sleep, sleep O! Bride of the sky
Thy wakening light from hovering height
Rhyming a carol sweetly recites
that winged my fancies and passion ignite

Go now! Thy lofty looks are gone dry
As my love phrased me bye,
Once she had me closed and Conquer
All my wit and wild wild temper
When I sealed my face in her bosom
Squeezed her charm and fragrant blossom,

O bride of the sky
Come close and listen to my cry
Bring me back in this sweet July
The vanished charms of my Helen of troy.
O! Heavenly symbol of love and purity
You lead a broken love to maturity
Make me whole in love and sincerity.

    So lovely, like a magical spill around the moon's face, a halo around it...aura of its beautiful charm..so it did dissolve you in its persona... where love glows in the darkness when night off the light, just a sphere candle that enchant the sky while kissing you with its bright..so beautifully written, as if you own it's heart settled in yours_Soul (Report) Reply

    By far the best of yours; since i started reading your poetry
    Great visuals a lovely mythological aura is thrown around the feelings and nostalgia like a rich stole, woven with rich imagery and steeped in the air of limmerance (pardon the usage)
    Loved the old age charm imbued by archaic usage to great advantage....

    This is another rhythmic poem with touching lines and the Allusion on Helen.
    Simply magnificent.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
