Crown Me with Roses

Fernando Pessoa

 Next Poem          

Crown me with roses,
Crown me really
With roses -
Roses which burn out
On a forehead burning
So soon out!
Crown me with roses
And with fleeting leafage.
That will do.

    Man, this poem is really deep ya know. Hits you right in the feels. Like how life is so fleeting and stuff, like roses on your head, you know. Kinda sad, but in a beautiful way, Makes me appreciate what I got much more. All our moments are like roses that burn out, right. ­čî╣Feeling super moved right now. #deepthoughts #lifeisprecious.

      Wow, what a powerful littl peom! It totally gives off vibes of temporary beauty and the inevitability of passing time. Such simple words but they speak volumes bout life. This made me feel melancholic yet subtly at peace, like it's just part of life. Amazing stuff!
