Triste, Triste

Rating: 4.5
In the space between love and sleep
when heart mourns in its prison
eyes against shoulder keep
their blood-black curtains tight.
Body rolls back like a stone, and risen
spirit walks to Easter light;

away from its tomb of bone,
away from the guardian tents
of eyesight, walking alone
to unbearable light with angelic

Darkness of sleep and love cries in prison but spirit awakens towards light of joy. Remembering the promise of paradise, the hammer remembers you. With love, peace, sleep and deepness, spirit walks to Easter light. A great poem is excellently penned and we feel the light inside. This poem has deep philosophy. A nice modern poem of the day is chosen, which is very heart touching!

A well chosen and well written Poem of the Day from the late great Gwen Harwood. And there are echoes in her poems of the late great Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

Triste is a Latin word meaning sorrow. The disappointment of unfulfilled feelings of love are perfectly described. Truly beautifully depicted.

Im Raum zwischen Liebe und Schlaf, wenn das Herz in seinem Gefängnis trauert, halten die Augen gegen die Schulter ihre blutschwarzen Vorhänge fest. Wunderbare Ausdrucke. tony
