ONCE UPON A MOONLIT NIGHT

ONCE UPON A MOONLIT NIGHT

A Poem by Kenilo Kent
"

On the 30th of November 2009, the eve of 1st December, me and some friends took a walk through the highway between Jotsoma and Kohima.

"

Fair winter I pledge on you,
And my companions must have mused
Upon the highway frozen and deep.
Old Kevi he will not care
For his moonlit walk dear,
Though no wayfarers dared.
There lies the moon frozen and bright
And cedars wild tossing high.
My companions would not care
Stopping by the brilliant rivulet' rush,
Their emotions I can't assume,
The slight measure of their motions
But seemed 'bliss of pure innocence',
Or was it childish romance?
We stopped by an aged tank,
Beneath a groove, frosty and bleak,
We watched the dawn about to break,
And heard the birds upon the pines,
And ran and ran in the wind,
And ran and ran with the wind.

Kenilo Kent
December 2009.

Oh this is quite an exquisitely executed poetry of such serenity, letting one's mind drift into a sweet reverie. The imagery unfolding to its climax renders the reader's imagination (this one's at least) of being embraced by the wind, never wanting to let go. gorgeous poem in both your choice of words and fluidity. thanks for sharing! :)

That was indeed kind of you. Thank you.
Not a fan of the cold. I live in the desert where I can roll around in the sand. But this poem may change my mind. Now, I need to find some snow somehow...
