Twin Triplets. No.7


MOMENTS

They flash into our midst in a twinkle
To seize them in our hold, as we scrabble,
They glide into eternity like a trickle

ORPHAN

Man and woman in unity begot
Soon in discord forgot
Now a castaway sans either's support

    The triplet regarding Moments and the one regarding Orphan are each in its own way creditable! - The line They glide into eternity like a trickle in the 1st triplet is so attractive-! In the 2nd triplet every orphan is made- a castaway sans either's support is an apt and true statement! ! Lovely too! ! (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
