Sad Cypress

Look at that cypress with its branches drooping,
in it woe and lament are trooping;
Its foliage is painted a yellow melancholy,

    Autumn started and so one reads this poem before 'Spring'. Truthfulness of inspiration in these melodious lines. I recall some of the French symbolists, and an Italian poem by Giosuè Carducci, 'In Front of St. Guy's Church'.

    the beauty i can see but i cudnt decipher some words which are anew for me.
    so will revisit a couple of times.
    let its truest essence settle down in me.

    yet, the beauty of writing in short
    is awesome.

    This is a very expressive poem, Koyel, and one that is written quite well also. Though a fairly brief poem, it's imagery is both sharp and very well communicated to the reader. It is much like a fine painting, showing the viewer perhaps a facet of life that they had not previously thought about. In that respect, you have touched upon what writing poetry is all about. Carl.

    This is very interesting piece. you could have expanded the idea a little more so that it becomes more lucid in expression and clear for perception. As Saurav said your earlier poems are even better....9
