Memories


The night's asleep and so is everyone
Except the ticking clock, which though
Itself moves ahead with the wind
But pushes me back on my bough
Rolls my mind through memories
Which have of long happened
Hitting the walls of those sour scenes
Whose scars have now deepened.

Yet my mind finds those dawns
When, it was sunlight I had seen
Had glowed in me and also in
Those with whom I had been.
By the time my mind returns to me,
It is another day I see
Showing me the steps, to make
Myself, what I am to be.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
