The Conceit - Poem by Razia Pell

The Conceit//

Razia Pell​

It's only October.
The evening breeze is breathing the chill of winter.
Maple leaves are turning brown.
The flickering of lights from the distant poles are bored like beggars.

The rose-petals are mourning their deaths in the dust.
The earth knows its orbit- the sun seems to be lost...
I have turned my eyes.....the blinds.......
let the stars dance, rejoice and witness dark blue nights.....

    - in ITALIAN:
    La brezza serale respira il freddo dell'inverno.
    Foglie d'acero si fanno marroni.
    Lo sfarfallio di luci dai poli lontani dà la noia come i mendicanti.

    Thanks for sharing..
