Nostalgia

Rating: 5.0
(dedicated to Sr. Gabriel Gárcia Márquez, a great storyteller)

In your heart are the birds, the breeze, the flowers, the lamb, the sunshine
Much pleasure, then from thee, much more, must glow, must flow
Of snow upon the mountains and the wanderers' camps
Then how grace a rose? I feel, I know a way!

One two! One two! One two! and through and through
To see love descending and see love ascending
We count our joys not by what we have
Drawing Love's bands more tight

Something about the way this reads that lifts my heart and mind taking flight and glimpsing something new. I like these lines: And the rocks melt with the sun And I sunned it with smiles Alluring dreams voyage me

'....With things whose tunes are played out and forgotten Away from books, away from art, the day vanished The heart recognizes thee, alone, alone, alone! Where both deliberate, love is right, the light...' Yea...all right, vivid imagery = imagination used throughout. Interesting. Cheers. Subroto

To be honest, it is a bit lenghtly, but that is me..... I find it hard to keep treand of thought with poetry of length, however you did a very nice job none the less, the structure was very good, and a fine dedication...... Bonnie
