Odyssey I

a poem by Naveed Khalid, Pakistan

O not in false pretense of vague impressions,
That of hidden meanings unfold in my verse;
Nor by what you think I deny thee so,
Makes no sense! Greek to me this romantic indignation- -
This trance of unmet desires in phantasmal reflex,
Hath rendered numb my untam'd heart, and cold
His untaught feeling by pen-prick'd angels;
And which by poetry alone hath madden'd the world:
No! none of these can e'er find worthy of thy perusal,
Save what still burns before the sun in hallow'd fire,
His unconquered love be but in ecstasy of heaven.
