September Spleen

Updated on November 30, 2015
Mihnea Andreescu profile image

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

Haggard sparks of summer light,

Adumbrate my slack demise...

Russet oaks seated upright,

Thrust back ravens with great poise.

Their lean wings fold taut around me,

Plummet into silent torpor...

Feathers cry -- ochre and bronze

- Slumber of the ancient arbors...

Horns and mangled violins,

Ageless jottings on my heart ,

Chant the strain of twain stilt streams

Vincinal yet still apart...

      Thank you very much :).I try to improve my style and prosody every day.Again I feel that my poems are a bit artificial and lack the natural approach and language a native poet would have.

      There is such pain in your poem; a call perhaps to the universe; the universe hears you, do not lose faith. Keep it up!
