Life’s Philosophy

When withered leaf departs from tree
and sings in tune her plaintive songs,
and obscure souls retire and flee
abandoning all earthly wrongs;
when sparkling stars of the mystic sky
embrace this Earth in their dreamless sleep,
and the beauteous streams with elegance dry
biding their bye to the colossal deep!
I behold the Sphere, this world of pains,
the golden crowns and the silver chains;
the hues of loathing and ill-desires
smashing this world with burning fire.
the shadows of gloom and baffling fears,
the laments of poor, their silent tears;
the terrors of wars and wild damage,
the savage diseases and worldly rage.
But still, they fear the tyrant of death
and still, they desire for tranquil whiles,
those ardent feelings with every breath
and bouquets of past with winsome smiles!
And thus they clash and thus they spread
the notice of love with blooming chests,
and then espy with gifted heads
that the sweet heaven is in their breasts!

    Such beauty of flow and wonder of imagery are found here in the impressive pen. I found sadness mixed with pain, and stirrings of the heart to find a release. A truly wonderful pen. Peace & Blessings, Sharron

    Heartfelt share to life. The sadness that is there is a lament that speaks from the heart to be heard about our times and what is given onto other’s when love should be the answer.

    “I behold the Sphere, this world of pains, /The golden crowns and the silver chains”
    you can construct beautiful and musical lines; good use of parallel structure is the essential key to any poem. Well done!

    The hope of a better world helps me to overcome all the horrors and injustices I see For centuries the last, the small, the poor are oppressed by injustice. Without justice, peace is far away. Nice article congratulations, you’re fine!
