    Enchant Me

    Your very being a desire for answer
    Lament not your unassailable mystery
    Enchant me with your dreams

    A personal reflection, more than a poem on the novel To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf

    Towards the Lighthouse

    "Tomorrow, if the weather is fine,
    we are going to the lighthouse",
    says Mrs. Ramsay.
    My family life, my friends,
    our worries, desires and tensions...
    Our small epiphanies are the threads
    I weave
    into an unfinished pattern.
    And tomorrow, tomorrow
    We are going to the lighthouse.

    (The tides of war washing away
    our aims,
    washing away our lives...
    "The nights are now full of wind and destruction;"
    The wind rattles wildly at the windows
    of an empty house.Decay. Desolation.
    Where are you?
    And you?
    Mr. Ramsay stretching out
    his empty arms
    After his dead wife.
    after his dead son)

    At last we are here
    We survivors
    Here we are
    And there is the lighhouse.

    "I have had my vision".
