When We Two Parted

Rating: 3.8
When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow-
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame;
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shrudder comes o'er me-
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee so well-
Long, long I shall rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met-
In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee? -
With silence and tears.

'If I should meet thee After long years, How should I greet thee? - With silence and tears.' - Wonderful! I am deeply touched by the solemnity and sobriety that lie between the lines of the poems.

I totally agree, so devastating the fact that in this day and age (2019) its all gone down hill in the poetry industry: (I just we could go back to my day where noone was on these stupid gadgets and would go to the park instead and read poems. Oh how life has changed, Callum
