Saudatu Kabir


My Heart's Epistle


It's time the fleas departed the dog's fur
And leave it in peace to smile at dawn
It's time the locusts left the green
And let it bloom year after year
It's time sweet peace returned to earth
And honesty to reign supreme
It's time light of my heart and soul
I told you all I've left unsaid
Of a tale I clearly wish revealed
Not for your eyes alone I plead
Share with the world my heart's epistle

Scribble my words on a golden plate
Let every living soul peruse
Even the birds and beasts and fish
Let them all glimpse at a true love tale
That its light may shine on all sad hearts
Their hopes renewed like a fresh ripe fruit

Once upon a time in early May
There came a prince from a land afar
Who taught my heart the art of love
And removed from it an ugly gown
Wrapped around itself in tears and gloom
And gave it a chance to breath a smile

My hansome prince taught without no pen
But with his heart reaching out to mine
Encircling it with warmth and bliss
That it said yes without delay
To a union, a friendship new and fresh

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
