Oh you, deceptive cloud of hope,
Pretend that you are awaiting the Final Day!
You are neither a spring day, nor a storm
But you are an angel amidst sad thoughts.
Remember, you deceived Odysseus the Great
And even when you fly among the stars
Down on earth we always find you.
Predict the future.
And tell us if the answer is yes or no
To the question will we live happily
After being ejected in birth’s violence
Into life’s grief or enthusiasm…
The different expressions of poetry
Elegies and poems, both creations of the mind, care only about cadence and rhythm, rhyme and symbolism, sonority and waving.
Aphorisms and poetic reflections human problems try to examine, and possible solutions for them try to provide.
