Dying Poems: 35 / 500

An Eternity

Rating: 3.0

There is no dusk to be,
There is no dawn that was,
Only there's now, and now,
And the wind in the grass.

Days I remember of
Now in my heart, are now;
Days that I dream will bloom
White the peach bough.

Dying shall never be
Now in the windy grass;
Now under shooken leaves
Death never was.

Artwork. Loved it! It has the influence of haiku, but is of MacLeish's own style. Incredible.

I enjoyed 'An Eternity, ' because I found it to be reminiscent of the way I perceived life in my youth. Like the 'wind in the grass, ' I to ran through life. The theme of 'An Eternity' is 'The Nature of Youth.' Thank you for the opportunity to read this interesting work of art.
