I Feel Sad Today

I feel sad to day I feel sad in heart to day, to see what is happening all around me The season of spring is singing the tune of autumn The Koyals* and nightingales have left without singing, This beautiful garden and the trees, Before the spring would have bloom them to sing, In full throated ease and beauty They have left the nest and the tree and even the Garden To see all this I am very sad to day, sad, very sad in heart Adieu my friends, you are the birds, who could have sung, Many more songs and would have given many more dreams, To those who are still in the garden, in the hope of a Koyal’s melody But these are the dreams for awaken eyes And not for those who are sleeping As day dreams can be put to shape, but the dreams of sleeping eyes Very rarely get a shape and are often get lost in sleep alone I feel very sad, To realize and to see things as they getting all around me Ravindra Kanpur India 31 01 2010 rkkapoor@sancharnet.in *Koyal . A melody singing bird of India (like the Nightingale of John Keats) Koyal mainly sings in the season of spring.

I have read this before Ravindra. But appreciate it so much. The sad of autumn when it should be spring. Because of the wicked things going on around us. The spring of water should not send forth both bitter and sweet from the same fountain.SAD! TRUE! Sincerely, Sincerely, Moses

Ahhh....the beauty, and the melancholy evoked in such a heart felt poem. I hope this is a mystical write, and not one that reveals your own heart.....I would not want to know that your are truly sad. Such wonderful poetry! ~ Carrie
