Who will grieve for this woman? Does she not seem
too insignificant for our concern?
Yet in my heart I never will deny her,
who suffered death because she chose to turn.
Thinking of the sun causes quick
beating of my heart —
snowy weather comes on the wind
Thinking of the sun makes
my heart beat faster — too fast!
From this night winter begins.
Now no one will listen to songs.
The prophesied days have begun.
Latest poem of mine, the world has lost its
Don't break my heart, don't ring out.
You will hear thunder and remember me,
And think: she wanted storms. The rim
Of the sky will be the colour of hard crimson,
And your heart, as it was then, will be on fire.
Quote of the day
Tonight, the whole world is watching America. I believe at our best America is a beacon for the globe. And we lead not by the example of our power, but by the power of our example.
