Clumsy Hands


I held a sunbeam in these clumsy hands gentle but so short
Its light shone so brightly that for a moment I was blind,
I had held others before but their light quickly faded to a dull glow!

    What a beautiful poem, it melt my heart! I love its imagery, wish I could draw or paint those clumsy hands by lovely sunbeams for a second being kissed!
    I think that maybe we are not supposed to hold the sunbeams more than a second, they are meant for all so maybe you are right, soon after being held would loose their shine.You were lucky to had it more than a second, (wasn't it because you made it shine?)
    .. Sitting under a sunbeam, my happiness would be immense! I'd close my eyes and stretch my arms, my body and my soul, to feel all of its warm! There is no need to watch its shine when under, maybe by closing eyes we can feel and remind their warm long long after..I love also to watch when it shines upon others hahahaha.
    May you keep the warmth of all the beams then continue their aim, try to warm others as you've done for me too with this poem, Thank you very much for share.

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
