Significance of the Nineteenth Autumn

entry picture

As the nineteenth autumn has come upon me,
It’s a whole new world I see.
Treacherous creatures, so often, hush and hide,
And it seemeth to me, a change in tide.

The poetry of soothing sensation has gone,
The glimmering golden glow of the sun is now none.
Some say,’ The Head is battling with the Heart’.
Well ! All Logic has been torn apart.

As I gaze into the vast emptiness
The dawning dankness
Of the perspective sickens me.
As too flashes past – a world that could be.

Alas! The path of glory has been paved,
One less heart could not be saved.

Such were the joys ►

Hey Natalie, thanks for the feedback. Really appreciate it. I wanted to bring out the whole philosophical concept between doing things with your head and your heart. With regard to language, I've always loved the classical language as opposed to modern language, so i try to keep that gentle touch wherever i can. I think it brings out the effect better. Thanks anyways :)
