I’ve Lost One Verse With Tinkling Lines Poem by Janri Gogeshvili

I’ve Lost One Verse With Tinkling Lines

Rating: 5.0

I’ve lost one verse
With tinkling lines,
I’ve lost a verse,
It’s somewhere else…
I sought the leaf,
But couldn’t find,
Even from the disc
It vanished.
I cried and cried
For that little verse,
In my soul it lay
Like a winged word,
It lay there
Like grief and anguish.

That bright and sincere thought –
That verse remained in the past.
I’m tired of grief and sorrow,
Sorrow has seized me at last…

Very nicely done, I can so relate to the loss. T In my head the verses come, and then they go, And show no respect for the sorrow they sow, When I awake in morning's light, I find the words have taken flight. Leaving me to rue the night, When the verses seemed so right.

May be so.. but your eulogy here.. certainly makes up for it... I tinkled earlier this year and lost about 50 of mine... when words are lost or die in the biggest ether.... vocabulary just loses weight... I lost some tears as well... (thanks for the translation) .

I enjoyed this one a great deal, Janri! Who hasn' t been devastated by a critical data loss, whether with a PC, device or brain, right? I love the salvaged nature of this, harkening back to the glory of your lost piece by jotting this new piece in tribute. Wonderful technique, my friend! Keep 'em coming! Warm regards, John.
