Shattered Dreams


Shattering dreams in roaring times
Pierce the air with voices of wanton cries,
Multitude of people in the age of beauty,
Is dawn to the lines of fashion ingenuity?
Intimate clothes, compelling, and adorable,
Every fabric of imagination is possible.
The economy of golden age already tarnished
In failures victory is already conceived.
Although some doubt what we are seeing
Hope shines more elusively in our dream.
From minds poised in graceful brilliance,
The language of linguistic countenance,
We desire to see fulfillment of our dreams
All the emotions dazzling in the streams,
The glittering destiny we were once convince
Had we seen the shadows in prophetic glimpse,
The aquarium world is a realm locked in a cage,
Earths fate dangling amides the forgotten age,
Where beauty began old age is given a crown
To the hoary head lurking with insipid frown.
Condemning the changes of this new society
Our dreams are shattered in mixed community.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
