Ode of Abigail


Drops of twinkle rain were expecting you,
to render your nocturnal hours heart's play,
Ode of Abigail on waves foamed quay.

Was she in air a wraith from blue bayou,
Drenched form waiting persistently to sway;
Drops of twinkle rain were expecting you.

Pelting on fields upwards to skies, eschew,
smiling dream-form made of raindrops and clay,
Ode of Abigail on waves foamed quay;

Out on the faraway to hold, the April's dew
Referred aboves, to winter clouds of gray,
Drops of twinkle rain were expecting you.

Blissful to far, a stare she was, sea view,
redeemed in air to lift, Heaven's display;
Ode of Abigail on waves foamed quay.

She was unreached, lady agleam on blue,
perceiving Winter's cold raindrops air-spray,
Drops of twinkle rain were expecting you;
Ode of Abigail on waves foamed quay.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
