A Question - Poem by Isaac Rosenberg

What if you shut your eyes and look,
Yea, look with all the spirit's eyes,
While mystic unrevealed skies
Unfold like pages of a book

Wherein new scenes of wonder rare
Are imaged, till the sense deceives
Itself, and what it sees believes-
Even what the soul has pictured there?

    Buried in a mass grave
    dug up ten years latter.
    Claiming they knew who
    he was,
    after a skeleton called.. iip

    A poem of such depth. Till the senses deceives itself and what it sees much truth in there. So much to ponder upon. (Report) Reply
