But Listen, I Am Warning You

Rating: 2.8
But listen, I am warning you
I'm living for the very last time.
Not as a swallow, nor a maple,
Not as a reed, nor as a star,
Not as spring water,
Nor as the toll of bells…
Will I return to trouble men
Nor will I vex their dreams again
With my insatiable moans.

Good one. First time i read i did not understand. Now i think i do. It is left to men to interpret what she means because men relationship vary from plessure through to extreme abuse. Beautiful

Not as a reed, nor as a star, not as spring water, nor as the toll of bells, living of a person has certain purpose and we feel the dignity and greatness of hope and joy. Life's true purpose every individual should understand. A nice poem is chosen as the today's Poem of the Day.

'Nor will I vex their dreams again With my insatiable moans' - The poem ends beautifully! Loved the expression 'insatiable moans'.
