Unsaid

Unsaid
The wind whispered to the trees,
his songs of lament.
The tree, reckoning the gloom asked the wind,
“why such sorrow”
There once was a maiden,
Her charm allured him so,
Her calm made him a serene lad,
Her smile, like lullabies mesmerized him so.
But Alas,
if only he’ve told her the ocean of love,
He had for her,
the waves of feelings,
He had for her,
Before she drew her last fine breath.
On dark moonless nights,
The wind whispered to the trees,
his songs of lament.
The root of the trees caressed her face,
then and there she knew,
She was loved once,
and always will be.

  2. The “unsaid ” poem is beautiful poem full of visual and natural imagery which sets a melancholic tone .
    It is a type of ode that is dedicated to the beloved of the poet which is narrated to us through the careful kneading of the imagery. The songs of laments could be heard on the occasion of the death of the beloved. The poet then amazingly describes about the attractive power of the beautiful maiden and how he got mesmerized through it .

    We come across a Volta after the first section of the poem that is we feel a dramatic change in the emotions of the poet. We find the poet sighing about the unexpressed and unconfessed love for her beloved. The poet uses a hyperbole in the phrase “ocean of love” and metaphorically compare his love with an ocean to express his deptness of love for her .

    In the last section of the poem we find the poet optimistic about his love for her and beautifully describes the action of roots upon the beloved and says that this movement of action, then and there made her beloved realised about the infinite love he had for her which is a eternal love that will remain forever even after she dies .
