Darkness-The Real World


The day-
Is the courier of light,
It makes realise
Our life slight.
The night
Is the courier of darkness,
Realising the meaning of life,
It is shining -
Brighter than light.

Everywhere there is light,
It helps sprout lives,
Through lives-
It makes us realise
That there is night.

In this material world
We do belong,
To live here permanently
We can't long,
''O death thou art great
O death thou art great'' -
Should be our song.

We exist in light
Yet we can't see the air,
Though we live life
The meaning of life
Is still unclear.

In darkness we lived
In darkness we will live,
That is our real world
This information I have to give.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
