The Sun Has Burst The Sky Poem by Jenny Joseph

The Sun Has Burst The Sky

Rating: 4.1


The sun has burst the sky
Because I love you
And the river its banks.

The sea laps the great rocks
Because I love you
And takes no heed of the moon dragging it away
And saying coldly 'Constancy is not for you'.
The blackbird fills the air
Because I love you
With spring and lawns and shadows falling on lawns.

The people walk in the street and laugh
I love you
And far down the river ships sound their hooters
Crazy with joy because I love you.

A very meaningful poem if in parts it was constructed a litttle more simple, it is the start of being a good poet....the first 2 lines could not be better good luck regards

Normally I am able to suppress my rage-induced desire to hit small animals with blunt objects. However, after reading this poem I was rendered completely incapacitated by rage, and many suffered. Let this be a warning to you all.
