When So Many Springs Are Faded out


And then so many
Springs are faded out-
Now the age of the tree
Knocks the door of the death

Moon far from the tree, but
still shining, though
Soil of the graveyard
become yellow to grey-

‘O’ the river flows with
chime, but the tree bends
a little, but never
bloomed a flower again-

Time never waits for me
Though I wait for the time
‘O’ green fades to grey –
Is it the truth?

A few leaves hold it as a tree –
But meaningless the life
Meaningful if birds sit on the branch
of a tree and sing a melancholy song

‘O’ once I felt innocently beside her –
Meaningless to meaningful
Stones rolling through stream
become even and round,
but sharper to sharp less

‘O’ I am sitting and singing
beneath the tree and sometimes
On that branch when birds are
flying far from the tree -

'O’ Lord give me peace in my mind
When peace lies at haven
Let her to come back again to me-
When so many springs are faded out-

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
