Plant Me


Want more than I gave?
Plant me in your life's field
I'll come up as a lush green shoot.
Water it
feed it
with your untainted love
protect it against wild animals of greed
if you can,
put up a fence of your watchful moments.

One day, I'll grow into a mature tree
and bear fruits for your hungry dreams
Really, my darling, you want something more?
Bury me in the fertile land of your delicate feelings
be not afraid an iota,
a seed you cared for fondly
might rot and die in the moist soil.

My love!
A seed has to sacrifice
and die to be born anew
death is not an end of life
but a holiday for planning
to plant life in a fresher way
so want more from me!

Plant me in whatever land you have
don't wait for the rains
shower me with your tears
I'll sprout up as a beautiful plant
with the glint of thousand suns in my eyes
and laughter of eternal life on my lips.

Please plant me, if you wish for more...

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
