A Poem by

"Forget me not ", I will not say any more
for countless flowers have blossomed in the yard
and bees in frenzied swarms they allure ,
that hum , like the tune of a singing bard.

Let me thus dissolve and fade away .
Like winged seeds , in the winter gale , let me fly ,
until the wind dies down this fair day .

Then there let me fall , let me die , let me die .

Let me die and arise anew again
in any one of life's myriad forms

let me savor the pleasure of earth and rain
let me stand my ground against the storms .

Good poem, though a bit sad as well. If I may, perhaps you should change the "let me die..." of the last stanza for "Let me vanish and arise...", you may use a different word if you like, I just think the poem repeats "let me die" too much, however, this is just my opinion, it still remains being a great poem as it is, keep up the good work ^^

Let me die and arise anew again

Great stuff here my friend, of course I could go in many directions as to the meaning of this work, but for me it is love where the other doesn’t feel the same yet your (me) love grows stronger and now acceptance for something that could never be and grows with a love that will never die. That’s what I felt when I read this piece.
Great job, well done.

Too good and very impressive lines of true love.

I love the last stanza the best. A well-written.

A wonderful write...and watching nature and seasons changing is all part of living on this earth. The seed flies to new earth to bury itself and come up again some place else..Liked this very much..Kathie

I'm with Rossen. I like this just as is. To me this is more than just about flowers and birds, but of the siren call of a love who is too infatuated with others...the "let me die" gives call to the want to cut ties with the heart wrenching trials of a love denied. Beautiful write! Excellent work!

Like this just the way it is,
I like the use of repetition
to build up the phoenix beautiful...
