Flame Still Burns


Winds don't be so wild
i have only one candle
lit in the darkness
with thrusts and splashes
flutters my violet flame
while
you can take me
just with sardonic smile
my soul goes down to native lands
you hover to top of castles on mountains
it could be so worse
and guilt lies on you
with heap of dead leafs
i close my eyes
with faintest breath
can't see beyond whirling dusts
walking on worn stone steps
dragging down to dimness
i can find my destiny.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
