Snow-like Longing- Written at Saint Valentine ’s Day

Snow-like Longing
Written at Saint Valentine ’s Day

I truly want to turn into snow flakes
And softly land on your shoulders
Take to your coldness some banks of willow green

I do want to send you a love lyric
And place you in its scene
But I’m the only one who tune in it over and over again

Heeding the lyric, heeding the rustling wind on a winter day
That seals up a feeling tightly
I gaze at your face, familiar and strange
And my heart is pierced painful by a rose from distance

Time and time again, we meet in dreams
Dream after dream. Is it no more than a dream?
In and out of the dream, a seed makes melt the February ice
That once carried you silently from blow of flowers to their withering away

In and out of dream, I cut my yearning into a fine rain
That keeps dropping on a bone-cutting windy night till there are rhymed lines
I don’t know when the poetic mood comes or the moment it’s gone
I just know my longing for you is like snow, yet without falling down.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
