Valsa George


To My Anonymous Lover


Somewhere in a strange land
An unknown heart throbs for me
Etching an amorous graffiti
On the blank walls of my mind
Where ever I am, I feel a pair of eyes
Fondly surveying and scanning me,
Speaking to me in silence
And keeps me awake in the night
I feel it all, I hear it all
Filling me with a sweet ache!

When night birds croon in the woods
And their mates answer the serenade,
When the moon begins her somnambulistic walk
And light beams percolate through pine needles,
When a hundred eyes open in the blue heights
To watch over the sleeping Earth,
When the whistle of a train is heard far away
And its music wanes into a monotonous drone,
When the rooster makes his first clarion call
Breaking the serene silence of the night,
When glow worms float in darkness
Like cruise ships over the sea,
When night gales shake the slender coniferous trees
And wind whistles among their leaves,
When sailing clouds blind the stars
And the night turns into an ebony shade,
When the opening Jasmine secretly exults
In her own exotic scent,

Sitting in my dimly lighted room
I draft this message of love
Pouring all my warmth into it
Thus emptying my love laden heart
That blazes with the fire of love
And encode it in cryptic script
To be mailed to you, my love!

Oh, it might take much time
Better it be a whispered endearment
Sent through this perfumed night breeze
That shall carry it from this end to that end

So kindly leave your window open!

    I left my window open upon Valentines eve,
    though the night was windy wet and foul,
    come the dawn I began to grieve,
    all that had visited was the driving rain and a soggy grumpy owl. (Report) Reply

    Valsa a fantastic poem especially for Valentines Day! Valsa I left my window open as you said, days and night passed none turned out, even a small bird I was expecting to call me. The mistake it was, I didnt share your this poem, now big V days out. Next year definitely I will share your this poem.... Very fantastic flow of words. Sure after reading many anonymous would definitely fall for this poem.... I can see many beautiful comments....
    I loved it. (Report) Reply

    I am speechless! Good that it is addressed to anonymous lover! The list might be too long of all who love you so dearly. Thank you for sharing this superb poem coming straight out of Saraswati's pen. Wish you a happy belated Valentine day. (Report) Reply

    With an attractive title and an auxiliary note, this beautiful poem will entice a thousand lovers to free their fancies to 'soar to an imaginary lover'. Truly in keeping with V Day spirit, you've so beautifully penned the thoughts that thronged many of our heads on the V Day eve! Particularly, all the 'When's in the second stanza are so artistically described that while reading those I had felt as if I was viewing an art exhibition.
    The thought of 'a whispered endearment' wafting on a 'perfumed night breeze' warmed me up on this chilly night.
    And the poetic expression, 'from this end to that end' when both ends are unknown to me, made me glance through many ends in life!
    Thank you, Valsa, for this beautiful poem and your beautiful wish to the members of PH, of which I am lucky to be a small fraction
    The poem deserves 10/10. (Report) Reply

    A hundred anonymous lovers might have read this poem and they might have wished if their loves had written similar notes.
    A beautiful poem written on the occasion.
    If the poet were there back in her younger days instead of the fancy soaring high, there would be true love glorified here by the poet, I am sure... Why don`t you try my time machine by next year madam Valsa? (Report) Reply

    Bri....I enjoy your sense of humour and most of your comments....! . But by all standards, this is a little too much and upsetting! ! ! The 'whispered endearment', I don't think is powerful enough to swim across oceans and continents.... (Report) Reply

    When night gales shake the slender coniferous trees
    And wind whistles among their leaves, ...................................very nice, with the possible negative comment....which is only negative because i grew up calling pine 'leaves' pine needles. but that is MY problem! leaves is correct [darn it] as seen in this piece copied from online about conifers:

    Since most conifers are evergreens, [1] the leaves of many conifers are long, thin and have a needle-like appearance, but others, including most of the Cupressaceae and some of the Podocarpaceae, have flat, triangular scale-like leaves. can you repeat Cupressaceae rapidly ten times? ? ....without a mistake?

Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
