Let It Be Forgotten
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.
