A Wind Returned (poem)

Updated on January 3, 2013


A wind which bore a scent of long ago

Returned again to play upon my heart

Salacious secrets wonders to impart

From fields where springs of dreams would freely flow

-

By trance enhanced I searched for source of flare

As from this while I drifted far away

I felt as time was leading me astray

When I saw beauty combing out her hair

-

How many years how many tears have passed

Since I was certain why I fell in love

I saw the wish which he was dreaming of

As in his springs again my soul is cast

-

The wind which scent of long ago once bore

It blew again to gently close the door

      Beautiful and awesome.I voted up.Well,the Greek word for "return" is nostos. Algos means "suffering." So nostalgia is the suffering caused by an unappeased yearning to return.It is is a necessary thing, I believe, and a way for all of us to find peace in that which we have accomplished, or even failed to accomplish. At the same time, if nostalgia precipitates actions to return to that fabled, rosy-painted time, particularly in one who believes his life to be a failure, then it is an empty thing, doomed to produce nothing but frustration and an even greater sense of failure.
