Christmas Day (rondeau)

It's Christmas Day. I wake so pleased to see
a sky of blue and sunlight on the tree.
I'll be alone but know now I'll get by.
Nature will color my soul and I won't cry.
It's Christmas Day.

I spun one thread to create a family.
Grown and ill he cannot come to me.
I wait and wish his pain was just a lie.
It's Christmas Day.

Life doesn't agree to what it's meant to be.
Untidy notes destroy its melody.
I'll work my poems then later with a sigh
walk slowly to the beach and there I'll fly
with the gulls and wind, then fold into the sea.
It's Christmas Day.

    caroline, this is a very beautiful poem. It moved me and I enjoyed reding over and over. There is a silent sadness mixed with a subtle hapiness which is hard to explain but portrayed perfectly. (Report) Reply

    such a beautiful poem
    the lyric soaring
    the joy ever present
    even sadness here
    yields to the mystery
    of Nature's purpose
    a fine poem (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

Kneel down, fair Love, and fill thyself with tears,
Girdle thyself with sighing for a girth
Upon the sides of mirth,
Cover thy lips and eyelids, let thine ears
