Perhaps I Lost The Poems Long Ago


PERHAPS I LOST THE POEMS LONG AGO

Perhaps I lost the true poems long ago
Lost them when I lost my Silence
And with my endless flow of words
Drowned that intimate voice of hidden meanings
The voice of feelings beyond simple names-

Perhaps I lost the true poems long ago
And will never have them again-

Perhaps I never had them
And Silence should have been mine in a more elemental way
As proper modesty
Of one who simply could not
Write well enough.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
