Remember - Poem by Dan Danila

I, the taster of late autumns,
hardly remembering the tobacco flower
spying the shivering hoary lake –
can sometimes hear my heartbeat.

At daybreak – only the lamp
of the old man polishing lenses
and the poet's narrow window
are still tempting the fireflies;
while the rose leans forward,
between verbs, against our engraved
arms; when silence is a swan
that has turned away from dying
and the moon is drying up her wings
like a newborn butterfly...

    Beautiful words, Dan.
    'At daybreak – only the lamp
    of the old man polishing lenses
    and the poet's narrow window
    are still tempting the fireflies;
    while the rose leans forward,
    between verbs, against our engraved
    arms; ' - This is exquisite writing.

    and the moon is drying up her wings
    like a newborn butterfly...

    I love your taste of autumn!
