Eternal Mirror

You have no time to write they say
For you can lay no claim to fame
What do I say to a busy world
Where fragments live in oblivion

Cycles live on paper and mirror
And poets stand together
There is no space to fill pages
With age old tales of joy and pain

I only preserve a memory on pages
Of tides and times that rose and fell
The soul it paints the same colour
On every page where light floods

Some say that there is a mirror here
But no object to reflect upon
But I see a mirror on the mirror
And in between stands a reader

    A very fine argument. It would be more clear if mirror set against the mirrorNature one mirror; the poet another from which the reader grasps the recesses of society. (Report) Reply

    A bit too deep for me Abhay. I am not sure what you are saying at all and for me to say it is a great poem without understanding it would be an insult to you. Instead I shall ponder on it for a while and see what happens. Thank you for inviting me to read it. I apologise for my lack of understanding. (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
