Lesson From Long Ago


From a restless beginning
Till the upcoming end...
From the endless 'long ago'
Till the future 'will be'...
A story has been written
A story has been told
A story has been heard
Till the beginning of the end

A story tituled 'Time' written in a book
With no pages, nor words
Only thoughts long lost
And passion
Passion from the writers of a book
A book tituled 'Time'
From an endless 'long ago'

A story known as 'Time' spoken in a book
With no echoes, nor voices
Only memories long lost
Memories with no authors
But with wisdom of million souls
Souls that have faded into memories
Collective memories we now know
As 'History' by the book

And as we are they once were
How they are we will be
So be prepared to follow them
From the endless 'long ago'
Till the future 'will be'

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
