Poem Recitation (The promise)

 

Cold winter breeze

over a sleepy oak forest.

The promise of a kiss, a ritual

before the long sleep.

Her cold breath,

whispering,

warm melodies of her world.

His jaded eyes

waiting,

for the silence;

in memories of her words.

The leaves now yellow,

the sky turned

gray and still.

For his love will soon be harsh,

and his patience

ravaged, within.

From eternity,

she is traveling;

holding the answer

under her lips.

Fidelity dies with love,

even time doesn’t mend

the broken strings.

Her melody,

now broken, and her love,

blue and still.

She whispered in his ears,

the promise,

to come back next spring.

His twigs flickered,

to reach her,

one last time.

She kissed him

with her cold lips, he is

pleased with the

gentle lie.

The unsung story,

of his youth, will soon

fly with her,

beyond far.

For she didn’t age in

centuries,

her tiring youth,

forgotten with

a new start.

He closed his eyes

as she drifted past him,

the leaves followed her,

shyly,

for some time.

She carried them awhile,

for she loved him,

dearly;

But the pale leaves,

now, free from

the promise,

fell behind

peacefully,

on the ground.

        It is not difficult. There are some blogs that have given a detailed descriptions about doing so. For that, you have to create an account on sound cloud. Try to search blogs, or otherwise, you can find my email ID on the contact page. I can share the procedure.
