Analysis of The dream

In my soul I caressed her; oh caressed
She twined and twined around me impressed
As a gentle breeze, lightning bright and so deep a flame
And so a calling, calling horripilate thrill
As the sweetest, sweetest nectarine coolness
As the honey-dream in me, she did shine
Then, then grown as ambrosia fine
Mind so ruled oh ruled so well
By the wonders so unknown to spell
I did forget, forget myself all
And turned as my darling; her fragrance soul
In my soul I caressed her; oh caressed
She grew as a flame a flame so impressed

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…
