Circe's Counsel - Poem by Yasmeen Khan

Let the ships drift on waters calm
Thoughts’ gales torn the sails
And they be wrecked forever in qualm

Vessels steered to the fatal land
Winds of passions, the Sirens’ lure
So fill the ears with reason’s wax

Our seafaring souls, spirits firm
Move and skim in waters deep
In grace and finesse stay stern

    Such is the universality and applicability of the ancient myth on man's life...i agree with unwritten soul, yes, it is a smart poem, and a bit esoteric too...a well-composed piece of poetry! ! ! (Report) Reply
