Double Suicide As Shakespeare Tells


Cleopatra:
'It took but one fleeting moment
And love glistened in your eyes.
With gentle allure you wooed me
And calmed me with lullabies.
A duet we sang together.
Do you recall the theme of love?
Paternal and maternal
Life's glory we were dreaming of.

But, farewell my love,
we are doomed...
why is it all ending like this?
Not even a goodbye kiss.'

Mark Antony:
I remember that fleeting moment
When my soul was hypnotised.
I fell in love with your beauty,
Your song brought tears to my eyes.
Life was joyful, happy forever
On your finger you wore a ring
Eternal and paternal,
Three sons were our everything.

But, farewell my love,
we are doomed...
why is it all ending like this?
Not even a goodbye kiss.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
