Tick-tock goes the clock. Pitter-patter falls the rain. Ding-dong rang the bell. "Sweetheart! Are you ready?" "Yes darling! Let's go" Zig-zag goes the road. Chop-chop goes the walk. Blah-blah goes the talk. Eensy-weensy we mimic the joke. Rock-'n'-roll goes the rolling stone. Hip-'n'-hop goes the dance. But the difficulties knock-'n'-knock. And so the hustle-bustles makes it heavy. But, sweetheart" life is as sweet as honey!" "Dearo!", Let's jump up high on boogie-woogie. And make ourselves looney! Teeheee!
Come live with me and be my Love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That hills and valleys, dale and field,
And all the craggy mountains yield.
- Christopher Marlowe
Pastoral poetry originated in ancient Greece when the poet Theocritus started writing about rural life and nature in the countryside.A pastoral poem focuses on the fantasy of withdrawing from modern life to live in an idyllic rural setting. No matter the form or structure the poetry takes, it always explores country life.
I never knew social distancing would turn me into this creepy kinda person. As you know offline classes are rolling and I spend most of my time traveling to and fro.. Which is tedious. But yesterday I saw someone who was a sight for my sore eyes. So this not a poem is dedicated to that cute stranger who was wearing a light blue T-shirt and dark blue jeans. Sigh.
I'll try something else for today's challenge. This piece is for my stranger.
White fluffy pampas wiggling across the lake Since I was child they captured my gaze Sometimes I see cluster, and sometimes only one Whenever I travelled on the road passes through them Some are standing straight like arrogant youths While some are bend downward like mature in his adulthood They dance passionately with wanton winds,and In the burning beem gracefully glint Look like snow basking in moonlight And light saffron tint when the sun rise.
//Seeing pampas during journey teaches me You needn't to be always strong and rigid as stone stiff To win the war where you're fighting in Because you could have conquered everything Just with the single weapon called delicacy.//
