TheSilent Loudness


Darling, Not Mine


It seems a sandless hourglass runs
When near time till you and me, to us
Till where you lay and think my thoughts
And speak to me 'forget-me-nots'
To say to you what I have lost

Whenever asked your name I boast
Though yours is not my hand to hold
Even in gold, you're worth the most
My darling, sweetheart, mon seule chéri
Thoughts never could imagine a brighter dream
Than when I'm your own, mon seule chéri

Poem of the Day

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
