So Slow to Slumber

So slow to slumber in the opaqueness of your eyes
tender flower of a nations heart, sweetest sleep
seeds so scattered upon these September sighs.

May the tides and winds of change muffle out the lies
and in the last breath exhaled, I catch to hold deep.
So slow to slumber in the opaqueness of your eyes

Sifting through memories, all is not as it belies
fingertip to fingertip in shifting sands, gently sweep
seeds so scattered upon these September sighs.

Seeking, searching above, below for love is all and wise,
brew the leaves, let the waters imbue with essences to steep
So slow to slumber in the opaqueness of your eyes.

Sing, let the timbre of your voice sound those lullaby’s
Our soaring chorus in worlds away, around the tune we keep
seeds so scattered upon these September sighs,

Nothing can assuage the grief, humanity cries
take away the bitter taste, let all in freedom weep
so slow to slumber in the opaqueness of your eyes
seeds so scattered upon these September sighs.

One of the most 'poetic' of all your poems. Very subtle style and structure.

honestly speaking, i think it's very deep and tender and honest...like the true heart of a poetess. we all tend to grasp life like the poet does and this poem talks to me
great

This is just beautiful Elle, nothing more nothing less. Even the sadness can't take away its finesse.
