Sonnet CCCLXI

Interrogate the robins – ask them why –
some sudden sunshine peeks between the leaves.
Familiar laughter claims the startled ear
and torpid languor confiscates the eyes –


We spent such carefree days beneath the skies
and when the rain had interspersed between,
we hid like naughty children, impishly
and laughed and laughed and laughed away the sky –


Relinquish you –
                            beyond my feeble grasp,
released beyond my grandiose love at last,
such scenes we’ll see again our separate ways?
Rekindled in my solitary view
at all familiar turns I think of you –
do you remember me at all today?

  1. I read this poem with an immense sense of gratitude to the author, for the evident care he puts into all his work! I'd gladly buy one of your books, if you were ever to be published!

    Have you tried any of the magazines -- e.g., Poetry, the monthly publication in Chicago?

A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.

I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

- Emily Dickinson
