The Loss Of Love - Poem by Countee Cullen

All through an empty place I go,
And find her not in any room;
The candles and the lamps I light
Go down before a wind of gloom.
Thick-spraddled lies the dust about,
A fit, sad place to write her name
Or draw her face the way she looked
That legendary night she came.

The old house crumbles bit by bit;
Each day I hear the ominous thud
That says another rent is there
For winds to pierce and storms to flood.

My orchards groan and sag with fruit;
Where, Indian-wise, the bees go round;
I let it rot upon the bough;
I eat what falls upon the ground.

The heavy cows go laboring
In agony with clotted teats;
My hands are slack; my blood is cold;
I marvel that my heart still beats.

I have no will to weep or sing,
No least desire to pray or curse;
The loss of love is a terrible thing;
They lie who say that death is worse.

    I ended my first Comment with these Congratulations, chosen by Poem Hunter as Modern Poem Of The Day. Also my warm congratulations to all members of his family in the USA. This poem is loveliest in uttering about how it is the loss of love, but most tragic the emotive feel.No one could sense this poem as the poet self.But I must admit it is a most sensitive poem, beautifully worded most tragic. The loss of love is worse than death.... (Report) Reply
