The Ruin

THE bitter wind blows o'er the desolate wold,
—The bloom from the blossom forever is sped!—
And I must trudge on thro' the sleet and the cold,
And sweet to my heart were the lot of the dead.

Upon my shrunk bosom sleep seizeth my child,
—The bloom from the blossom forever is sped!—
Awaken my darling!—Alas, I'm beguiled,
And would I too slept the sound sleep of the dead.

Cold, cold are its feet and its bosom, and oh,
—The bloom from the blossom forever is sped!—
No more will the bird prove a light to my woe;
And would I too slept the sound sleep of the dead.

Its sweet glossy eyes seem to look at men yet,
—The bloom from the blossom forever is sped!—
They mind me of others I fain would forget;
And would I too slept the sound sleep of the dead.

Its soft silken locks, e'er as sunny as soft,
—The bloom from the blossom forever is sped!—
A-wet are the curies I've kissed so oft;
And would I too slept the sound sleep of the dead.

The wee tottie crept atween me and my toil,
—The bloom from the blossom forever is sped!—
But then its bit smile had the trick of his smile,
And would that I slept the sound sleep of the dead.

No father had I once to threaten or frown,
—The bloom from the blossom forever is sped!—
And mother kept silent till reason had flown,
Then dropt she to sleep—the sound sleep of the dead.

I've reached the old ruin endeared by the past,
—The bloom from the blossom forever is sped!—
He'll come here and find our bones whiten'd at last,
And lie down and rest by the dust of the dead.

How Can You Sleep?

How can you sleep, knowing that the one who Really do Loves you Feels Bad He Let You Go?

How can you sleep, knowing that the one who Really Loves you cant sleep at night?

How can you sleep, knowing that the one who Really do Loves you cant Eat Because you are no longer there?

How Can you sleep, knowing that all he wants to do is hear your voice every night before he goes to sleep?

How can you sleep, knowing that everyday all he do is long for your touch and the warmth of your Lips?

How can you sleep, knowing that your on his mind everyday, Minute, Hour, Second?

How can you sleep, knowing your his one and only, even when your not together?

How can you sleep, telling him truth about him but not being true to yourself?

How can you sleep, not telling him what you know you want him to know?

How can you sleep, knowing he put his trust in you and you let him down?

How can you know so much yet so little?

How Would You Sleep Knowing That One Day Soon Will Be The Last Day You Ever See Him Again Knowing He Did You So Good And Yet One Day You Let Him Down?

Occupational Hazard

He has slept with accountants and brokers,
With a cowgirl (well, someone from Healds).
He has slept with non-smokers and smokers
In commercial and cultural fields.

He has slept with book-keepers, book-binders,
Slept with auditors, florists, PAs
Child psychologists, even child minders,
With directors of firms and of plays.

He has slept with the stupid and clever.
He has slept with the rich and the poor
But he sadly admits that he's never
Slept with a poet before.

Real poets are rare, he confesses,
While it's easy to find a cashier.
So I give him some poets' addresses
And consider a change of career.

Ghazal 314

You who are not kept anxiously awake for love's sake, sleep on.
In restless search for that river, we hurry along;
you whose heart such anxiety has not disturbed, sleep on.
Love's place is out beyond the many separate sects;
since you love choosing and excluding, sleep on.
Love's dawn cup is our sunrise, his dusk our supper;
you whose longing is for sweets and whose passion is for supper, sleep on.
In search of the philosopher's stone, we are melting like copper;
you whose philosopher's stone is cushion and pillow, sleep on.
I have abandoned hope for my brain and head; you who wish for
a clear head and fresh brain, sleep on.
I have torn speech like a tattered robe and let words go;
you who are still dressed in your clothes, sleep on.
