Thanks laffoe for sharing another good poem.
Poems are great short stories about life that speak volumes.
It has been said that the greatest secrets of life are found out either through music, mathematics or poetry.
Mathematics and scientific theory are like the "high tech schematic" of life. However, Only the poem can put it all together into words that can be
really understood at the deepest levels of thought, spirit and consciousness.
Below is a poem written years ago before we where born, yet the poet knew that her poem would have it's time.
I came across this poem while reading some Russian poets and thought it was a good one.
These my poems, written so early…
These my poems, written so early
That I did not know then I was a poet,
Which having tore, like droplets from a fountain,
Like sparks from a rocket,
Into a sanctuary, where there is sleep and incense
Like little devils having burst,
These my poems about youth and about death,
This unread verse!
Scattered through shops in piles of dust
Where nobody picked them up or does,
These my poems, like precious wine,
Will have their time.
by ~ Marina Tsvetaeva (1892-1941) Russia
