Subashini Ravichandran

Turn Over A New Leaf

I sit down, I pace around
I close my eye lids
waiting for the day to end

Unwinding the hours that passed
The pauses and the fast forwards
fail to recognize the despair

leaving them to pile
cluttering the heart
and crushing the pipes

Take another stage, better times
it may seem pumped up,
too trivial to ponder on

But here and now, in the midst of
exits and pricks, where the lost
or the uncertain hold any spell
only the darkness lingers on

Now when the moon hides
behind the mysterious clouds
I await a miracle named tomorrow
to cradle in when the light appears

    A nice poem with a depth of meaning. I enjoyed the lines-I await a miracle named tomorrow

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
