    Meditations from here and there

    Rumbling
    Thundering
    Glimmering
    Keeping sound against sound
    As it has been everywhere washed
    A nightingale would woke up
    To ask about an absent fellow
    And admired
    To see its neighbour rose yet was not dewed!
    A rose of spring that comes to doors
    Deeply embodied in its sins
    A picture to picture would envision
    Of a bad mixer has an old heritage
    Henceforth will be purified
    As well turning mentally sound
    A photographer would precisely notice
    Then indeed, it will be painted
    As far as it will be implanted
    Into a shadow of a reversing wind backside
    To inhale buds' strong fragrances
    Perhaps will be ever dewed in sunlight
    Since then bud would grow up
    And it would have a specific emotion
    And to welcome the thorns of never roses
    But to have a throne on that manifest-eyed
    To be darkened within the emotion of night
    As well within each flappy wings
    Not to be blundering when it flies
    Therefore, it would be ever pleasant
    And variant colours would be unrestricted
    To hang over eyes meditating in souls reactions
    Though poor would have extremely rich souls
    So both nightingale and swine would be pleased
    And man to man would welcome
    As wolves to wolves welcome
    My country is the Home of Honour And
    Without honour I haven't Home

    I like the line, "So both nightingale and swine would be pleased", although I probably don't understand the poem.

    Thank you YesNo. It is a mixture content joining between bad and good, I studied in my life, it is normally deals with facts that can be familiar everywhere.
    It includes many symbols: the rose, the nightingale, sunlight..etc..
    The style is overall easy and simple but the mechanism of it has been running at difficult trends
