Sign and Symbol


Sign is more direct
Too much indirect is symbol
But both indicate and help us to communicate
So, once symbol wrote to sign
But sign made out of it, nothing

You are a most unfortunate
And I am the worse owner of fate
How can I tell you anything direct?

Read my eyes
Look at my heart
They both tell you something indirectly
And that is also in a nut shell
How can I tell you anything direct?

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
