New Year

Rating: 5.0

New Year, don't come to our homes, for we are wanderers
from a ghost-world, denied by man.
Night flees from us, fate has deserted us
We live as wandering spirits
with no memory
no dreams, no longings, no hopes.
The horizons of our eyes have grown ashen
the gray of a still lake,
like our silent brows,
pulseless, heatless,

denuded of poetry.

COMMENTS OF THE POEM
Sylvia Frances Chan 20 December 2017

TWO , she was a professor and excellently educated, BUT she did the task of a good poetess and she KNOWS what is going on in tha Arabic society, so she regarded this as her DUTY to create this poem. Yes she WAS that smart. We do never jump into conclusions, but PLEASE READ HER POEM as it ought to be read. THANK YOU.

Too many people jump to conclusions on here. The poet was a university professor, not some downtrodden person. Famous and successful. Read the bio.

In greatest difference with our women's world, the poetess lived and loved in a traditional male's society, where women have no rights. Horrible must this be. Many women died a premature death, I reckon. Saddest poem I ever read about not being free as a soul must be. More tears are flown mine side while reading these words, but most beautifully worded, saddest deep inside. CONGRATULATIONS on This MODERN Poem of The DAY. Most beautifully worded.
