A Magic Moment I Remember

Rating: 3.3

A magic moment I remember:
I raised my eyes and you were there,
A fleeting vision, the quintessence
Of all that's beautiful and rare
I pray to mute despair and anguish,
To vain the pursuits world esteems,
Long did I hear your soothing accents,
Long did your features haunt my dreams.
Time passed. A rebel storm-blast scattered
The reveries that once were mine
And I forgot your soothing accents,
Your features gracefully divine.
In dark days of enforced retirement
I gazed upon grey skies above
With no ideals to inspire me
No one to cry for, live for, love.
Then came a moment of reinessance,
I looked up - you again are there
A fleeting vision, the quintessence
Of all that's beautiful and rare

Good Heavens! What a way of rewarding a man, may be for a fleeting moment, only to disappear and reappear again when he finds him so forlorn. That divine satisfaction is beyond explanation. Great poem. A fleeting vision, the quintessence Of all that's beautiful and rare
