Day and Night Only


The Young Couple
The small thatched house
The green front fields
The cool small stream

They slept in the night blanket
They woke up with birds
The sun lead to the field
The moon guard their nights

Only days are gone
Only nights are gone
Joyful days and nights
Brought them lots of children

They marked the lands
They scratched the walls
Days are become Weeks
Then Month, Year, Era

Day devided hours
Minuts and seconds
Then the cracy children
Divide more to nano

They lost the day
They lost the night
They can`t find
The beauty of day and night

    I needed to read this again.. my feelings are that you might refer to the simple life humans had before, as time runs, civilization, science advance but to the detriment of ' US '. Then we have to work so much that we forget the meaning of day and night.. we loose the happy days and nights that you described at the start of this lovely poem. Could we call this progress? ! ? hmm...

    Indian life is realistically pictured here. Life looks glamorous in the beginning years but gradually becomes pale and mechanical as the whole day one has to struggle to earn his livelihood.Nice theme.I give 10++++ for this. (Report) Reply

    They lost the day
    They lost the night
    They can`t find
    The only day and night...so the endless plight and life cycle goes on. if leasurely used then ur luck or spent aimlessly then also your luck....but once lost can't be recovered. beautifully interwoven.....10 (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
