Today Poem by Daniel Hoffman


Rating: 4.5

Today the sun rose, as it used to do
When its mission was to shine on you.
Since in unrelenting dark you're gone,
What now can be the purpose of  the sun?

Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Few poets know when to stop writing- they keep penning more words which take the glow away from the perfect lines. Awesomely written and awesomely terminated in the right place

- In Italian: Oggi Anche oggi il sole è sorto, come faceva Quando aveva la missione di brillare su di te. Ma dal momento che sei scomparsa nell'inesorabile tenebra, Quale mai può essere, ora, lo scopo del sole?
