Valsa George


To My Anonymous Lover

Poem by Valsa George

Somewhere in a strange land
An unknown heart throbs for me
Etching an amorous graffiti
On the blank walls of my mind
Where ever I am, I feel a pair of eyes
Fondly surveying and scanning me,
Speaking to me in silence
And keeps me awake in the night
I feel it all, I hear it all
Filling me with a sweet ache!

When night birds croon in the woods
And their mates answer the serenade,
When the moon begins her somnambulistic walk
And light beams percolate through pine needles,
When a hundred eyes open in the blue heights
To watch over the sleeping Earth,
When the whistle of a train is heard far away
And its music wanes into a monotonous drone,
When the rooster makes his first clarion call
Breaking the serene silence of the night,
When glow worms float in darkness
Like cruise ships over the sea,
When night gales shake the slender coniferous trees
And wind whistles among their leaves,
When sailing clouds blind the stars
And the night turns into an ebony shade,
When the opening Jasmine secretly exults
In her own exotic scent,

Sitting in my dimly lighted room
I draft this message of love
Pouring all my warmth into it
Thus emptying my love laden heart
That blazes with the fire of love
And encode it in cryptic script
To be mailed to you, my love!

Oh, it might take much time
Better it be a whispered endearment
Sent through this perfumed night breeze
That shall carry it from this end to that end

So kindly leave your window open!



Wish you all Poem Hunter Members A HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! !

    I feel glad to have read this old poem almost accidentally,
    and wonder how many such gems lie buried in unknown depths of PH.
    Brilliant imagery full of sentiments and passion.
    I don't maintain a My Poems list, or else it would go there.(Report)Reply

    Somewhere in a strange land an unknown heart throbs and mind is automatically motivated in affection. Still empty love blazes with tenderness and light of action. Pouring all your warmth into it, you feel the beauty of love. An excellent poem this is. Giving full 10 point to this I have read this nice poem several times.(Report)Reply
