Bride Of The Sky - Poem by Xelam Kan

Go away and veil in clouds
lovely bride of the sky,
thy wakening light hovering high
and sweetly rhyme a carol that
wings my fancies and passions ignite.

Oh thy lofty look is needed no more
as my love phrased me bye;
Ah once she had me closed and ceased
all my wit and wild temper,
and when I sealed my face on her bosom,
ah squeezed her charm
and fragrant blossom.

O bride of the sky!
Don't you see my woes and cries?
where is she, my love, my Helen of Troy?
O! Heavenly symbol of love and purity
lead my broken lines to maturity, and
bless me  in love and serenity.

    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.
