Fantasies And Dreams Dear Enchanters - Poem by Nero CaroZiv

Fantasies and dreams dear enchanters
Why summon up to my view
The memory of love, which banters
All as if it was never true

Why torture and turbulent me
With thoughts of love gone by
Which like foul shadows over vexed sea
Hover dim like a ghost in distant sky

The days of that love now dashed and shaded
By the twilight of long ominous days
Flowers of love before you bloom you doomed and faded
Though bathed in my tears of sorrows and prays

These agonizing thoughts of love which waken
Mournful regretting feelings now
Green fruits before your prime you were shaken
By rough winds from your parent bough

Where is now the young heart exulting
In sweet pleasure and unmeasured sense
And spiritual joy never in satiety resulting
For it emerged from conscious innocence

Love gone with the foul wind parted
A sweet sensation that I so prized
Which she stoned, cold hearted
Never has realized

I knew not then its course or its strife
I knew not then its rancor
Why, Oh Why in every rose of life
There lurks a canker

I lament the palm tree springing
With succulent fruit hanging, at its waste
Cleopatra’s asp is clinging
To sour the fruit to our taste

Who will cover my age’s frosty naked mansion
So cheerless so tattered and so chill
After love doomed bleak with no expansion
And what pain and loneliness lie ahead still

All, as a whole have past and fled
Leaving behind forlornness and soul lonely
All these dear feelings are dead
Sharp painful remembrance wakes them only
