Still For You Poem by Cigeng Zhang

Still For You

Rating: 4.7


The flower, scattered
The leaves, old
The riverbed, iced
You not yet appeared

The wind, heavy
The fog, hazy
The coral, reddened
I'm coming in sincerity

Like a sheeny canary
I sing an easy ballad
Sing your name repeatedly
Along the road you passed

When I read this poem, I thought of the book, Waiting, by Ha Jin. How long does one wait? The speaker in this poem, however, still appears in peaceful calm as she waits for her love. Your descriptive imagery conveys volumes with as few words as possible. There is such heft to every line. Also because the lines pass so much time, I found I had to read them slowly and let them sink in before I could move to the next. Interesting writing style. Thanks for sharing your beautiful writing.

A haunting poem, Cigeng. I love the tempo, and the words are short, effectively giving emphasis to the feelings at that moment.

I may be wrong or perhaps coincidence but the last sentence of each seem to make a statement. Maybe I'm just thinking like me. Either way another lovely write
