To My Wife- With a Copy of My Poems

With a Copy of My Poems

The Poem

I can write no stately proem

As a prelude to my lay;

From a poet to a poem

I would dare to say.

For if of these fallen petals

One to you seem fair,

Love will waft it till it settles

On your hair.

And when wind and winter harden

All the loveless land,

It will whisper of the garden,
You will understand.

The Review

‘To My Wife- With A Copy Of My Poems’ is a beautiful ballad that he writes to his wife.

He, in the very first stanza, puts forth a humble statement where he says he won’t write a stately poem as a prelude to the poems he is giving her. His poems, like ‘falling petals’ would only manage to touch her hair but would not penetrate into her head or her heart.
