Story Of Drowning Family

This is the story of a son who paused
And saw his family drowned in an ocean
He swam also, to shun his people was strong.

To answer this story needs sentences,
Restless youth strives in the ways of men
And torture arrives at the time of death.

Living an exile this death, the son was a coward
Who deposed the father from his authority of life
And questioned his father’s rights, so that he was taken.

Taken by the waves, taken, and taken,
They grabbed the waves of water
Yet were swimming failingly, and never reached.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
