Poetry in Translation, (CCLXXXV) ANONYMOUS, BRITAIN/ENGLAND: “Smile (Acrostic)”

gelato amorino

British Anonymous

Great dreams of timeless Past
Ensconced in sorrow’s breast.
Love’s memories downcast –
A melancholic zest.
Tomorrow what may bring
Onto my weary heart?
A frozen smile will hurt
More than a poisoned dart,
On a Golgotha’s Path…
Run down, but not yet out,
I promise not to fail,
Never to stumble down,
On our ways, which part.
