Mountain's Grief Poem by Shamik Kumar Bose

Mountain's Grief

Rating: 4.2

Have I ever wept on a mountain's grief?

The sadness so profound, yet so majestic
That thy strongest heart bore since thou wert born

What is so immortal in a grief that finds a spring to express?
Just a solace, an easing out of a pine

The greatest grief in this world
is sculptured on you

So thou stands still, watching forever
Whilst the rest of the world weep

So the river floats on God's tears
Whilst He mourns on thy grief

So the birds sing in melody
Whilst thy heart burns in pain

So the wild rains thunder
Whilst the saddest quake in your heart erupts
In a wave around all thy moist rocks

Streams and Tremors…incessant tears betwixt intermittent bouts of grief...yes the Mountain grieving...standing 'high' it is able to look upon all those autocracies down its planes... I liked the theme there...the way a mountain and the Creator’s grief is juxtaposed...the Mountain there is symbolic to God...intelligent insightful write...10
