Chopinian Lament - Poem by Maria Magdalena Biela

This Autumn I mourn
the fear of a leaf
who paid to October
a fistful of days
to dye her hair
from green to fire
unaware
that the dyeing brings death.

I mourn the nightmare of birches
who dreamt themselves fire
in the heart of Winter
unaware
that only becoming kindling
they will glow.

I mourn the sadness of the grapes
who yearned for rosy lips kisses
unaware
that to be drank from a glass
they must let themselves be crushed.

This Autumn I mourn
the despair of the Man
who searched for love
unaware
that she was his shadow
which he ignored
leaf by leaf
and tree after tree.

    This Autumn I mourn
    the fear of a leaf
    who paid to October
    a fistful of days
    to dye her hair
    from green to fire
    unaware
    that the dyeing brings death.
    - - - - - An amazing poem that expresses the grief and sadness of heart.

    oh the love
    sad love
    avoided though waiting leaf after leaf
    springtime after springtime
    thousands of negligence makes the eyes withered leaves
    yet love sitting on the path of waiting, on the coming back path of kissing on rosy lips......
