*Slow the love (Sequels)

Hast thou seen my love many times
The morning dew or the dusk in the eve
For the lovers’ caravan to the tavern goes
Neither mosque nor temple
But heart is reverend
The temple of love

Hast thou seen my love many times
The ignorant the nescient
For they think the story of love
Shall end here with morality they preach
Of freedom unaware possessed by spirits
Of hatred alone shall one day come
To the city of love in the tavern baptized

Hast thou seen my love many times
In sequels the songs of your love
For the honor like the noble Othello
When the Lago plays wits in hold
And when all that join the chorus coarse
In preposterous vulgarity in judgment sit

Nay the tragedy of love in doom
The moth shall burn for his destiny
The flame of love but just a flicker
How many flames they portend extinguished
Never shall the flame of your love go down
Never shall moth born to burn leave the flame

    WOWWWW so beautiful! ! ! ! !
    let the enemies of love
    burn in their own hate
    A master craftsman you are Sadiq
    You have painted this canvas with
    golden colours straignt from thy heart
    and water you have used
    my tears to lighten the shades
    A++++and many 10ssssss

    You are doing sequels as a song of love with the theme slow the love and a touch of a bit of the moth and flame...where all speaks of love as a romantic mood...You are gifted to the flow and use of words, truly classic....written in a free verse form though presented in an ageless structure...10+++++++ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
