Exposure | A poem by Wilfred Owen

Exposure | A Poem by Wilfred Owen

This is one of the finest poems written by Wilfred Owen, in the backdrop of WWI.
In this poem, he talks about how the soldiers sentiently keep waiting for the possible exposure to death, in the poorest of weather conditions. Always ready to die, their brains ache. ‘But nothing happens’. It highlights the effect of the weather on battle-weary soldiers and in addition puts their plight into context when it momentarily touches on the dream of a return home.

Prayer Before Birth | Poem by Louis MacNeice

The poem beautifully presents the thoughts of the poet through the mouth of the baby who is still unborn. The baby is well aware of the gravity of the situation across the world that he is just too scared to take birth. He simply knows that the world is too evil that he will not be able to sustain here, given its innocence.

Beta Cancri is the brightest star in the constellation of cancer, his zodiac sign. This is where the character experienced deep lost in space. With him gazing to the stars, he constantly asks all of the stars of his savior to save him from this vacuum of space. He is hopeless, but still searches desperately. Unfolding every galaxy, every star to find his safety. Tetrabiblos is the ultimate book of the stars authored by Ptolemy. In this poem, this is his one way ticket to outer space.

Soul of my soul | A poem by JW Cassandra at UpDivine

Soul of My Soul

The poem belongs to my volume XVIII, “Incompletion”, cycle I, “Soul of My Soul”. This is its 4th poem, the pair-poem of the previous one and, in a certain sense the reverse of the 2 previous ones. I share this poem with the other ones, belonging closely to this one, for we all being mortal, everybody has painful loss and feels to miss the beloved ones. I am, as well, so I’d like to commemorate my beloved persons and that of everybody on earth. “Lelkemnek lelke” is the Hungarian version of the same poem.
