Sonnet 2 Poem by Octavian Cocos

Sonnet 2

Rating: 5.0

My body's made of dust and muddy earth
And yet my soul descended from the sky,
Love's been my mistress from my very birth
And I'll protect it always, till I die.
She's like a down that gathers in a pile,
Because she's sensitive and pure and light,
But if the wind starts blowing for a while,
Then she gets scared and suddenly takes flight.
On our Earth, love is a little shy,
People have lost their meaning and are bad,
They are attached only to things that lie,
Love for some time, and then they all get mad.
But I respect my mistress, she's sublime,
I'll be her slave until the end of time.

I am reminded of the famous lines of Great Malayalam Poet, Kumaran Asan: Snehamaanakhila saaramoozhiyil/ Snehasaramiha sathyamekamaam..". Meaning, The very essence of everything in the universe is Love. And Love is the only one Truth
