Let it be forgotten, as a flower is forgotten,

Forgotten as a fire that once was singing gold,

Let it be forgotten for ever and ever,

Time is a kind friend, he will make us old.

If anyone asks, say it was forgotten

Long and long ago,

As a flower, as a fire, as a hushed footfall

In a long forgotten snow.



This poem is about a lost or forgotten beauty. Its about allowing yourself to forget about ones loss and to remember the beauty of its once being. I chose the poem because the title of it stood out to me. I liked the whole meaning of it and telling yourself to forget about things but don't forget about the beauty of them. I also like the rhyme scheme and the imagery that she uses.
