Ode to My 10’s

Posted: September 27, 2007 in Poetry

Under thy mist, I woke this morning up
Time was up, before the time ends,
You died in time, my tender days
You are away, lean, leaner and vanished

My tears just falling down
But I do not cry, they drive me
the night far the distance
from innocence

Who had ever returned to you?
Nor shall thou
My return to innocence falls apart
Thy hands are short and Ears are deaf
Too short to hold me back
Too weak to hear my plead

Out my world, they fly, jump and run
They are in thy field, my children
You had deceived me, and
They shall be deceived

I, We believed, these days
Were not going to end

  5. Ezhuthukaran says:

    Did you mean you woke the morning or you woke up in the morning?

  6. The latter…

    The plowman homeward plods his weary way(Thomas Gray, “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard” )Here although the way is expressed weary it is understood that the plow man is weary after his work, one kind of hypallage, also known as a transferred epithet. Just like I woke the morning up mean I woke up)
