To be read in the morning, evening and night

Spread the love

Poem inspired by the title of Robert Burns poetic masterpiece, “Up in the morning early.”

Up in the morning early
where does your mind go,
how far
are you willing to wander
in the bustle of day,
where waves of sepulchral dreams
recalling words of May;
and if I stay
would you hold me as darkening hills unfold?

    I like the way this piece seems to hold its breath and wait, teetering on the edge of both bright and dark. A heart that beats as strongly in the dark as in the light is a beautiful and rare find.

    You’ve transformed ‘up’ into a romantic word, Sanaa, with your sprinkle of magic. I love the ‘waves of sepulchral dreams’ and the promise – or is it threat – of the unfolding darkening hills.

    I like that, Sanaa, holding her until the hills unfold.. That is a long lasting hold, an invitation or proposition for a long, long relationship. Plenty of irregular rhyme also, regular end and internal.
