……………....By Sami Khalil

A romance poem………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Those abiding questions abound

Whilst raged and constantly be

Whose hemmed immortals round

To fetch back their infinite glee.

 

Who ravished labours and reigns

Accurst in pride and haggard rites

Beholding selfish, disheveled gains

Palsied as it were in guilty plights.

 

But love needn’t a retort or reproof

Whose repose in comparison none forgo

And hearts yet manacled in blithe aloof

Perused to no starry end in sunset glow.

 

Whose unforeseen silence and succor lay

Edifying in truant swells a puissant way.

Nicely done, Sami! Powerful ending describing traits of love. Your lexicon is as always, very admirable.

What a delight, indeed. I do admit being a bit bogged down in the prose, but its worth it! Your writing style is unusual in the modern sense, but not to be discounted for its present value.

Sami Khalill,
Contrast and meaning; hemmed immortals round, fetch back thier infinite glee, accursed in pride and haggard rites..................love needn't a reproof or retort ...How lovely the contrasts and even confusion. Can't say I totally got it but the satisfaction for me is trying too. Wonderful piece.Kathy

I have to confess I always run for the dictionary , then I read and re read , sometimes I confess I am none the wiser, so I will give a stab romance and the pitfalls , the ones who take more than they give . Poignant and lovely too.

just wow! just exquisite... portrait of vividly, seductively serene imagery of romance that
your pen painted in this sonnet...of bygone era *s* that sets one's heart adrift while reading this
definitely reminiscent of J. Keats. i see another piece of your art *gem* needs to go in my pocket...
oh how one could get completely lost in your words, and not ever want to be found, Dear Poet.
thank you, for sharing, Sami. ~ :)) 100th/fav. *obviously* lol
