Like rainbows dissolving or love's end
We mourn the parting of friends
As the Sun travels East to West
Do we wonder where or when it will rest
In the Spring a world reborn
A child's first step this Summer's morn
Autumn's passing into Winter's night
Shows a glimmer of Heaven's light
And slowly ticks the clock and chimes
As in passing beats our time.

Beautiful poem filled with wisdom and exquisite beauty brought forth by your words. Thank you for sharing.
Rainbow dissolves with broadness of end of perception and in blooming of love. In spring we see rebirth of word. An excellent imagery is drawn with sweetness of expression....10
dissolving rainbows, Autumn's passing, passing beats of time.......... your concentrate on passing.... liked it very much since it made me think of the triviality and at the same time of the beauty., thank u dear poetess. tony
ok, i just reread twice. i guess it is definitely 1. a poem of serious reflection and, in part, it is a lament for the dead. so, it IS an elegy. hee-hee. i shall start constructing June's all-female-poets showcase, using this as the first submitted poem. but unlike in the past, i shall wait a while before i make the 'first bunch' of poems available for readers of the showcase. i'll let you know when you may see it on my site. Thanks. bri :)
From Google: Elegy el·e·gy ˈeləjē/Submit noun 1. a poem of serious reflection, typically a lament for the dead. synonyms: lament, requiem, threnody, dirge; More 2. (in Greek and Roman poetry) a poem written in elegiac couplets, as notably by Catullus and Propertius. ======= love poetry is traditionally composed in elegiac couplet. It consists of two paired lines of primarily dactylic () meter: the first line, which contains six feet, is a hexameter line; the second, which contains five feet, is a pentameter. ============== So, IS it an elegy? It is 'all Greek to me'! ====== I liked all but the last line. I don't understand it. I'll certainly consider it for June's showcase, if not sooner. Please remind me. Thanks, Bri :)
