Once again- a poem by Javed Alam
Just when I thought I had doused my fires,
I saw an amorous spring changing things again;
Just when I saw snowdrops, hellebore,
Dancing tulips, and the sunshine,
I saw my dreams murmuring again;
Just when I saw the fluttering
Butterflies, and the singing birds,
I saw an old flame flickering again.
Once again, caught in the talons
Of leman, my heart is carried helplessly
Over a new terrain.
Once again, my days are filled
With the ecstasy, and strain.
