Longing

Now I long

for all the beauty lost

from words and deeds-

I wish to knit peace

to wrap

this homeless, orphan,

careworn world-

the sun is sinking

and wintry night prowls about-

I bide my time

till ‘proud-pied April* arrives-

*in Shakespeare’s Sonnet 92

  1. Don’t feel so sad about the winter season, even nature needs a rest now and then.I wish more people would personify the seasons and the world so they could relate with them instead of abusing them all the time.

Thank You :)
