Treasure Island

LET THIS WINTER LEAVE US FIRST


Let the frozen winter leaves fall one by one
Green leaves, they may lie buried through our eyes
As the trees started weeping last night itself
And their knees too were sobbing

Let misty sky fade out for now
And slide across the forehead of horizon
For the last night on the floor we saw its sign
The west and the east are shaking with cold.

Wingless are our birds perhaps flying
Although we have left a little snowy sky for them
Then at dawn on the top of horizon
You need not search for howling nightingales.

Leave your grass and leave your fruits, dear mist
Get ready for death during our bright days ahead
Search for none of migrating storks later
Even wild boars may lie safe afterwards, you know

Oh, dear smoke arise out of a fire you like
For aiding the crying sun who has gone in hide
In front of our dying today we know it for certain
You have to queue up for buying the tomorrow`s bright shades!

    In The times of the great Romantic Revival, nature or season poetry used to be the song of hearts with the pleasures of a devotee that is called a pagan delight, but the hearts to day, being the victims of the extremities of the seasons compose such verses in which instead of the wordsworthian praises or Keatsian eulogies, we have the entreaties and the earnest requests to leave us first...the sun which is crying in the veiled state will be domineering us...but this is what life is that renders human being as a lover of a pleasant and moderate nature! I agree with all the comments here...! you are a prolific writer. (Report) Reply

    Yes this year,
    The West and the East are shaking with cold
    And the sun has gone in hide.....!

    In sync with the times when the poor people make a beeline before ration shops and shelter homes, the Sun has to queue up for buying bright shades for the incoming Spring! ! A novel way of addressing the winter and waiting for the spring! Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
