Summer Rain

Posted on Updated on

Like a summer rain she fell
That hot September hour
And caught unawares he was drenched,
He lost all power
Of thinking clearly, went giddy,
Shook –
Shaking within him the citadel of equanimity
To a rubble.

‘I would go
Through a hundred times as strong rain,
A thousand times such trouble
(She was uncommon) ,
If over the ruins of my equanimity
She will build a new strength
Of love, or she is no woman! ‘

Summer Rain Summer

Posted on Updated on

I am a comer new comer
You tell me tale summer.
Oh summer you tell me
Cheer in mind you see.

Although it is our season
Rainy time within reason
Region is wet in hope less
You have come to us bless.

Little drops here fall of rain,
Still you wash out our pain.
Veil you cover in the warm,
Rainy summer humours form.

Waves come more on sea,
We bow down before knee.
Plays drum tall a drummer
You tell me tale summer.

I am a comer new comer
You tell me tale summer.

Morning Of Summer

Posted on Updated on

A day begins, shadows disappear,
smuggle,
a small twilight appears
there is a messenger of the great sun.

You step over and sing
sun wakes up slowly
blood-coloured landscape is projected in the distance
that I see it from my house.

Farmers have arrived on the plain
and the effort stays in their hands
machines that thresh wheat,
throw around ducats.

Shaves have gathered gently
work is now in height
sun is made a place
above us at noon.

Land Of Summer

Posted on Updated on

I go to a land not so far away,
To see you there,
And again another day.
There is the land now, it’s coming.
Here you are I see,
Trying to keep from crying.
I see it in your eyes again,
The bitter tears,
That sep’rated us then.
‘Twasn’t hate or bitterness, nay.
Just yourself and,
Your joyful temperament that day.
When will this all end, I wonder.
So close to something,
Yet so far from summer.
Summer was and will always be,
How I remember you,
And how I will see.
See I will, with those clear blue eyes.
See right through you,
Like unsettling spies.
Spies that hunt and rob and torture,
Rob me of everything,
But save me my wonder.
