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.’

  1. Books that teach us “how to withstand these woes” are miracles on paper. That’s exactly how I feel about my favorite book. Fantastic.

    1. I shall read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, as an October treat. 😉

      1. Sanaa says:

        ❤️❤️❤️

    2. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Magaly 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

      (and thank you for the lovely prompt)

  2. Oh, a perfect book to love and return to over and over. Time for me to revisit some of the classics myself.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Sherry 😀 so good to see you ❤️

    Books that take one on a journey….and to be able to return to it time and again. Lovely!

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Toni 🙂 so glad you liked it ❤️

  4. Rommy says:

    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.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Definitely 😀 thanks for stopping by, Rommy ❤️

  5. Ah yes, a good friend to return to often, that never disappoints – but for me more of a platonic friend than a grand passion. 🙂

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Rosemary 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

  6. Bjorn Rudberg says:

    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.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Bjorn 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

      (I loved its biting humor too!)
