(to Her) Autumn-Loving Heart - Poem by Agatha Eliza Laposi

The melancholic thoughts are
tightening around her a rope of
worn-out petals from a
dying amber rose..

Now, here she comes; so calm,
so cold, with her
marble silhouette-but
what a dread! Instead of
life..she wanted death!

The crimson leaves are
clinging on her
wind blows and sweeps
her curly locks away-far away
too far away..

Sheltered by the wings of
morbid dreams,
she keeps her memories
away from fading..
hidden in the coal clouds.

On the burning shores of
time, she grieves alone,
and sings mellow songs
all on the behalf of
her autumn-loving heart!

The reflection of a scarlet
twilight sparkling
in her eyes..such an omen!
she just drank the sap
of the unearthly venom!

From time to time, I pass
by this grave; but
here she lies..the one
who was born, and died
with autumn in her heart!

    Hi Agatha,
    On the burning shores of
    time, she grieves alone,
    and sings mellow songs
    all on behalf of
    her autumn-loving heart!
    ........ ...but
    here she lies; the one
    who was borne and died
    with autumn in her heart!

    A really haunting poem. I imagine a beautiful face of a girl, but colored in the hues of fallen leaves of autumn. A teardrop hesitate to pop up in my eye at that sight. Grieving! As Tagore said, I donot find the words in this poem. I find only the feelings, which directly speak to my heart. Agatha, RabindranathTagore (Nobel laureate poet from India) said,

    That words have meanings, is just the difficulty. That is why the poet has to turn and twist them in meter and verse, to keep the meanings subdued/under control, so that feelings are allowed to express themselves. You have mastered this art. Congrats. a perect 10.
