Dulcet Death

Spread the love

When slipped in lucid bonds of earth; shall hear
them pine and suffer dearth. When time ofΒ dawn
dispels the dark; I watch in time forΒ song of lark.
Life’sΒ embroidered with bloom and thorn; I bade
their eyes not weep or mourn.

Let smiles adorn beloved encased; to form
a lovelier vision with pace. Breathe not on
world with timid breath; those whose gentle
hearts do fear. We leap where others refuse
to tread.

With fervour the poet began to bless
As friend converse with dulcet death.

  1. Such beautiful words! I’m getting the impression from this, that it is a deceased person talking, and reassuring those left behind that they shouldn’t fear death. I may be totally wrong about this, though. πŸ™‚

    1. Hello Barbara,

      Thank you so much, so glad you liked it πŸ™‚
      Highly appreciated, lots of love πŸ˜€

      PS: You caught the essence of the poem beautifully πŸ™‚

  2. Beautiful piece. I love how you have deliberately chosen to not have the rhymes at the ends of lines …that allows your poem to have the feel of rhyme, but the visual forces the reader to keep moving so that the message of the poem keeps flowing.

  3. I think poetry can be a kind of extreme support – living life with a heightened sense of being without having to be fit or jumping off a cliff edge..when we embrace the ability to express and write..the end should indeed feel ‘ok’
