Analysis of So longings

There all longings, longings?
Wonderous, wonderous, so straight?
Up to the thrilling hot!
So the desired, oh desired!
Somebody came seeking, seeking?
All so heard, oh not to hear-
All so taken, not to return,
Longings, longings to caress, caress.
All so ringing, ringing
All so playing, playing
Would you so caress, caress
Hear oh, hear oh hear?
So all respect, respect!
Uproar, uproar so hear?
As so stood oh happy happy!
Longings so longings so loud oh came
Not so self, filled, filled
Not so turned, hard hard to swell
There's there's an old old time-
There's there's an old, old vessel
There's there's a goblet-
There's there's so gold oh precious!

William John

I am born and brought up in Kerala state, in India. In Kerala, Thrissur city is my native place and now I am residing at Kadavoor village in Ernakulam district.I am a senior lawyer at The High Court of Kerala. Literary talents all dwelt in my blood from my very birth itself. From, while studying in the primary classes, I wrote stories, dramas and poems in Malayalam.While studying in high school classes I wrote stories and poems in English. Then it grew in me as an endless blessing craze. I do write in English as well. I do write stories, novels, dramas and verses. I have written more than twenty thousand poems in Malayalam, about twenty novels and more plays.In English, now I have completed more than seven hundred poems. I think, very soon that it will grow to at least a five thousand. I am so much pleased and thankful to those nice friends who go through my poems all over the world and shower the rain of horripilate congratulations. Yours,William John(Email: fan page : more…
