In Three Days

Rating: 3.2
I.

So, I shall see her in three days
And just one night, but nights are short,
Then two long hours, and that is morn.
See how I come, unchanged, unworn!
Feel, where my life broke off from thine,
How fresh the splinters keep and fine,---
Only a touch and we combine!

A few lines of the poem that mesmerized me: 'Only a touch and we combine! ' 'And my eyes hold her! " 'The dark inspired, the light controlled As early Art embrowns the gold'. Congratulations on the poems selection as the 'Poem of the Day'!

(- -) but poetic love is very sensitive cause of meeting short night it's true that every true lover feels the night of love is short, too short and night of separation is long, too long poetic fear is here that if the beloved comes with short night and again goes for long separation this shape of loneliness will be very pathetic

Waiting is never easy but imaginative world makes it awesome special. The three days and the short night full of so much calculations that race in mind only to make three days and one small night yet special. Beautiful creation.
