Singing Sorrowful Song


Why hearts all sing sorrowful ditties,
Why nightmares torment dreams pretty,
Why sorrow revels in fate’s kitty,
Why sorrow humbles joy’s uppity,
Why sorrow questions joy’s sanity,
Why sorrow encroach joy’s city,
Why sorrow disrobes nubile pity,
Why hearts all sing sorrowful ditties.

    Though a person may seem to have
    A thousand surrounding friends
    A life fulfilled and blessed - The Heart
    Is ever hungry, it yearns, it longs
    It imagines it sadness and soaks in t
    Filling itself and the Soul with
    A sadness unexplainable, felt - But
    Can not be expressed or explained
    It is this desire otherwise called Love
    Which is the author of all sad rhyme!
    As I percieve.

    It is the sorrowful songs that are remembered the longest.
    It is just the way of the world and we must accept it.
    Poignant piece.10, for you.

    I have asked why too...guess it's because sorrow last's much longer, leaving a scarring whereas joy is a fleeting glimpse of what can be...majority relate more to sorrow... (Report) Reply

    Very good composition, Yes I also can`t understand why all hearts are singing that ditty(Sorrow we can call) That was Happening for Era`s, And it was a good satisfactional remedi for the suffering heart, what else they can do, And the coming days also you can hear more and more songs, without an interval at last we are unable to realise the sound. very horrible.Thanks for sharing Dear Dr.Hitu.

    whenever i ask my students to recall one incident from their lives, they invariably draw upon a sorrowful one...so it's with us when on a trip of nostalgia...sorrow is much more powerful than joy which fleets in a wink...as mvsn said, the rhyme schme isn't in sync with the tone...

    Dr. Hitesh, Very good write,
    Perhaps sorrow comes to enhance joy's intensity.
    I agree with C.T. Heart, the sorrows also make one wiser.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
