I've enjoyed reading the many posts for the poetry meme. I don't need to go far to see two of my favourite verses - they reside on the profile page of our very own annwyn55!! The words are brief, and I'm not sure if they're part of something longer, but I find them so enchanting:
A magic moment I remember:
I raised my eyes and you were there.
A fleeting vision, the quintessence
Of all that's beautiful and rare.
Between me and the world
You are a gauze curtain, a mist
A lamp shining into my dreams.
You are a bamboo flute, a song without words
A closed eyelid carved in stone.
Bei Dao, China 1949
