‘ABSENCE’ — A POEM BY ELIZABETH JENNINGS !

‘ABSENCE’

by Elizabeth Jennings

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I visited the place where we last met.
Nothing was changed, the gardens were well-tended,
The fountains sprayed their usual steady jet;
There was no sign that anything had ended
And nothing to instruct me to forget.
The thoughtless birds that shook out of the trees,
Singing an ecstasy I could not share,
Played cunning in my thoughts. Surely in these
Pleasures there could not be a pain to bear
Or any discord shake the level breeze.
It was because the place was just the same
That made your absence seem a savage force,
For under all the gentleness there came
An earthquake tremor: Fountain, birds and grass
Were shaken by my thinking of your name.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

MY MUSINGS :-

‘ABSENCE’ IS A LOVELY POEM BY ELIZABETH JENNINGS AND IT IS A RECOLLECTION OF PAST TIME OR FOND-MEMORIES-GONE-BY !

The Poet Revisits The Garden Where She Had Met Her Lover The Last Time And Due To A Powerful Gusts of Flashbacks She Recreates The Scenes n Sights of The Last Meet And That Is So Overpowering That She Doesn’t Find Any Difference In The Physical Ambience of The Place And Declares That As The Same That She Had Felt When They Met The Last !

But, The Stupor of Love , Breaks As We Proceed Through The Poem ! The Poet Takes A Leap of Sorts When She Concludes That Everything Has Changed In Its Essence, Howsoever A Physical Scrutiny of The Meeting Ground Gives Evidences To The Contrary !

It Is The All-Pervasive Absence of The Lover That Makes All The Difference When The Poet Smells A Biting Sense of Loss And Declares The Garden Now As Merely The Ruins of The Past !
The Overwhelming Sense of This Absence of The Lover Is Compared To An Earthquake Whose Tremors Have Shattered Every Possibility of Normalcy In Sight !
The Ruins Of Past Rupture The Re-union, If Any Could Even Be Fancied For The Time Being !

‘IF YOU FORGET ME’ – A LOVE POEM BY PABLO NERUDA !

“If You Forget Me
I want you to know
one thing.
You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red
branch
of the slow autumn at my
window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that
wait for me.
Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by
little.
If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten
you.
If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.
But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for
me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or
forgotten,
my love feeds on your love,
beloved,
and as long as you live it will be
in your arms
without leaving mine.”
― Pablo NerudaPIC.NERUDA.1010333_569860849723287_827842379_n
