Valerie (Black birds-Vessels of darkness)


Sometimes she sits in her chamber
Recounting clearly the words of amber
‘They will come on wings by the day
And your nights obscured, in spite of your pray’
Cuckoos, canary, sparrows, crows
Which way do their control emotions show?

Sometimes she sits in her chamber
Putting together the pieces to remember
Like the splinters from a shattered glass
Her emotions evolved in a raging crass
She screams as loud as an asp gone wild
A resonance, the cry of a drowning child

Sometimes, she sits sobbing in her chambers
Muffling her sobs with the fate of Easter
Wishing again for chance’s view
And a saving Grace to her rescue
As wings of crows blacken the sky
She meets with omen without a flight

Sometimes, she sits, dreaming in her chamber
That the blackened nights become as clear
By shades and tint of heavens anger
Before her soul’s betrayed to linger
!
! !
This time in her chamber she craves for slumber
Hoping that this night is a time they surrender
Their fall to earth,
Sure sign of victory
And her souls rebirth,
Is just a mystery.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
