Daughter of the North

Mihnea-Andrei Andreescu is a Romanian Symbolist/Avant-Garde poet and author of "Of Ecstasy and Sorrow".

'Twas a time,aeons ago

When I treked to frigid lands

Met-I graceful,sallow damsel;

Near her stood-I still,unmanned.


Yet my lady was elated,

Yet my lady was in bliss,

Agitation she abated

With a warm and lasting kiss.


Spent-we months and years together

Side by side and hand in hand;

Troubled-not 'bout thorn and heather

- Wheezing salmons on the strand.


Yet today mine heart droops heavy,

Miles away from icebound North,

Plumbic blood flows slow and weary

- Rooted leeches suck it forth.

      Beautiful poem, reminds me of the snowy winters in my native country. We can hardly see snow in Ireland. Someday the rain will swallow us :(

      I am glad my poem brought you some memories back :).I have never travelled to the US so I don't know much about Seattle but I am happy my work has some form of impact.

      Sitting here in steamy mildewy Hawaii, this poem makes me homesick for the brisk snowy atmosphere of Seattle. But I wouldn't return to the chaos there for ANYTHING!!!
