Time and again

Spread the love

Your words trace deep into flesh and soul
as I listen to the rhythm of cloud and rain,
to you I return love, time and again

Oh, erase this mind for hours it chose
around winter grey, not long ago
come chastise, as one would late
blooming rose.

Your words cut deep into mind and stole
taught me how to withstand these woes
to smile however glum and low.

And long after day has come to a close
till hours of sweet, descending moon
to you I return love, time and again

Magaly invites us to write a poem dedicated to a novel or a poetry collection
that we love. I have long been in love with Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice.’

    Pride and Prejudice always brings a grin to me as well. I can see how spending a little time with Elizabeth Bennett might inspire you to better face up to real life woes.

    I have read Pride and Prejudice and it’s funny how I loved it more for its biting humor in some of the character descriptions than for the romance.

    What a beautiful thankyou to a loving friend your favorite book. I too take pleasure in re-reading books that I would never part with probably as I could picture myself as one of its characters.

    The title and phrase ‘time and again’ is an enchanting repetition, conferring a ‘timeless’ quality to a poem based on ‘Pride and Prejudice’ – the main theme of which is: everlasting love. Lovely writing!

    The feeling of love is resounding out loud. It is good it is sustained time and again!
