A Poet's Death Is His Life. Kahlil Gibran. Recast In The True Poetic Form By P.S.Remesh Chandran

This poem is Kahlil Gibran's tribute to all human souls dying uncared for in this world. It is perhaps the most majestic portrayal of death in poetry. Gibran designed this poem as a psychic black hole of immense gravity which continues its journey through the abyss of time, consuming human souls on the way.

The golden gates and arch leading to eternity.

Gibran - the poet, philosopher, painter and sculptor.
Gibran describes the departing of a very lonely and lofty soul from this world when everyone is present except men. Loneliness of human soul and ingratitude of the world have never ever been painted in words more beautifully. 'A Poet's Death is His Life' means when he dies he is living. By his death he has begun to live. It is the gravest song in the book Tears And Laughter. The more we are immersed deep in the song, the brighter are we shown a glimpse of the golden gates and arch leading to eternity. But once we have a glimpse of that threshold, it will be hard for us to return to immediate realities. That is how the magic and charm of this poem led many appreciators astray. So beware of this song. It may permanently change you and most often there might not be a return to our former self.

A poet who wrote beautiful poems in bronze.


The famous Adastra Sculpture by Kahlil Gibran.
Gibran wrote this poem in blank verse which prevented its full enjoyment and singing. P.S.Remesh Chandran, Editor, Sahyadri Books & Bloom Books, Trivandrum slightly edited and recast this song in the true poetic form so that all the world may sing. This is the Fifth Song from Tears And Laughter that has been recast in the true poetic form. Hints and suggestions for singing the song have been marked, so that anyone who tries to sing it won't stumble and fall. Readers, learners and researchers are advised to read Gibran's original blank verse text as well.

The dim oil lamp flickering in a deserted hovel.

A hovel in the suburbs of a town
From Kahlil Gibran's
Tears And Laughter.

A Poet's Death Is His Life

One.

Dark wings of night enfolded the city
Upon which Nature'ad put a pure and white
Garment of snow; and 'men deser'ted the streets
For their 'houses in search of warmth while the north wind
In contemplation of laying the gardens waste.          [probed
There in the suburb an old hut heavily stood
La'den with snow and on the 'verge of falling. In
A dark recess of that 'hovel was 'a poor bed
In which was lying a dying youth staring
At the dim 'laaight of his oil lamp,
'Made to flicker by th'entering winds.
He 'was a man in the 'spring of life who fore - saw
'Fully that the peaceful hour of freeing
Himself from the clutches of life was fast nearing.
He was awaiting Death's visit gratefully
And upon his 'paaile face appeared the dawn
Of hope; and on his lips a sorrowful
Smile 'aand in his 'ey'es forgiveness.

A lone hungry visitor on an alien world.

The stoning of a poet.
Two.

He was a poet perishing from hunger
In the city of the living rich. He was placed in
The earthly world to enliven the heart
Of Man with his profound beautiful sayings.
He was a noble soul sent, by the Goddess
Of Understanding, to smoothe and make gentle
The human spirit. But a'las! He gently bade
The cold earth farewell without receiving
A sm'aeel from it's stra'eenge occupants.

Will far away stars bow down to soothe this trodden soul?


The mind of a dying poet.
Three.

He was 'breathing his last and had no one at his bedside
Save the 'oil lamp, his 'only companion, and
Some parchments 'upon which he had inscribed his
Feeling. As he sal'vaged the remnants of
His withering strength, he lifted his hands heavenward;
He moved his 'ey'es hopelessly, as if
Wan'ting to p'ene'trate the ceiling so
To 'see the stars from be'hind the veil of clouds.

He who speaks the language of angels is doomed in the world.

Four.

He said: Come beautiful Death, my soul 'is longing
For you. Come close to me and unfasten
Th'irons of life, I am weary of dragging them.
Come sweet Death, deliver me from my neighbours
Who look upon me as a stranger because
I interpret the language of th'angels.
Hurry, oh peaceful Death, and carry me
From these 'multitudes who left me in the dark
Corner of oblivion because I do not
Bleed weak as they do, come oh gentle Death.
En'fold me un'der your 'wha'ight wings, for my
Fellowmen are 'not in 'want of me, embrace me
Oh Death, 'full of love and mercy; let your lips
Touch my 'lips which 'ne'ver tasted a mother's kiss,
Nor 'touched a 'sister's cheeks, caressed a sweetheart's
Finger'tips. Come, and take me, my beloved Death.

A divine beauetee came down and closed his eyes.

Beyond the Golden Gate and Arch.
Five.

Then at the bedside of the dying poet
A'ppeared an 'angel who 'possessed supernat'ral
And divine beauetie, holding in her hand
A wreath of li'llees. She embraced him
And closed his eyes so he could see no more
Except with the eye of his spirit. She im'pressed a deep
And long and gentlee withdrawn kiss that left
An e'ternal smile of ful'fillment upon his lips.
Then the 'ho'vel 'be'caime empty and 'nothing was left
Save parchments and papers which the poet had
'Strewn about with bitter fu'tility.

Deny the poet food and love. When he is dead erect a monument.

Six.

Hundreds of years later 'when people
Arose from the diseased slumber of Ignorance
And saw the Dawn Of Knowledge had 'erected
A 'monument in a most 'beautiful garden of
The city, and celebrated 'a feast 'every year
In honour of the poet, whose writings had
Freed them. How cruu'el is Man's ignorance!

Dear Rama Devi Nina,
Nandi and namaskaaram for your valuable comment. Perhaps the same good old wind and rain and sunshine nurtured us. Rumi and Hafiz along with Gibran and many other Persian poets created heavenly music. They are far above my reach. To reach them I have to leave the ground. I simply try to introduce them to the growing siblings and keep alive the interest in them. Thanks Rama Devi Nina for your support and encouragement. Your poems are excellent. They remind me of Sarojini Naidu.

013. Song Of The Rain. Kahlil Gibran. Recast In The True Poetic Form By P.S.Remesh Chandran

Song Of The Rain. Kahlil Gibran. Recast In The True Poetic Form By P.S.Remesh Chandran
 
Editor, Sahyadri Books & Bloom Books, Trivandrum

By PSRemeshChandra, 11th Apr 2011. [3rd Jan 2011]

Posted in Wikinut Poetry Drama & Criticism. 

It is alleged that Kahlil Gibran hid his exquisite tunes behind a mask of blank verse to prevent the dull wits and the half wits of his times from enjoying his songs. This song is for the first time recast in the true poetic form by Sahyadri Books & Bloom Books, Trivandrum so that all the world may sing. It is expected that beautiful orchestrations of this immortal song will follow from other quarters of the world.

Through the skies she comes, down to the earth, to sustain a planet.

Clouds in the sky.
Song Of The Rain is included in Kahlil Gibran's famous collection of poems Tears And Laughter. It is written in the form of the rain herself singing her song as she comes down. In scientific perfection, this song can be compared only to P.B.Shelley's Ode To The West Wind, which will leave readers which one excels. Rain is beautifully personified in this song. Gibran was a close observer of not only human nature, but nature's creations and elements also. It is the first time in literary history that someone tells about the inner feelings and thrill of the rain in pouring out, spreading on the ground, seeping into the inner bowels of the earth and sustaining this planet.

Dotted silver threads, delivering love messages.


Rain on trees.
Rain is dotted silver threads dropped from heaven by Gods, which nature takes away then to adorn her fields and valleys. She is beautiful pearls plucked by the Daughter of Dawn from some sovereign's crown, to embellish her gardens. The clouds and fields are lovers and she is a messenger between them. By pouring out the rain cures the cloud and by coming down to the ground she quenches the thirst of the field. The voice of thunder declares her arrival and the rainbow her departure. When she cries coming down the skies the hills laugh, when she reaches the ground the flowers rejoice, and when she has seeped down deep into the soil all things are elated.

Listen to the rain: it is an incessant song.


Shelter in rain under a tree.
Rain emerges from the heart of the sea and soars with the breeze. When she sees a field in need, she descends and downpours and embraces the flowers and trees in her own million little ways. In human houses, she touches the windows with soft gentle fingers and all can hear her welcome song which but the sensitive can understand. She is born out of heat in the air which in her turn she kills, exactly as a woman overcomes a man with the strength she takes from him. Rain is the sigh of the sea, the laughter of the field and the tears of the Heaven and Love. One will wonder how scientific and close Kahlil Gibran was. It was as if he entered the very soul of the Rain to sing on her behalf. This song is only one of Gibran's many exquisite creations. Just listen to the rain: it is the tune that made this song. Gibran did not invent or create a tune for this song, he copied it. Actually he stole it from the rain.

Rivers, meadows and mountains all sing songs after rain.


Wet grass after winter rain.
As the rain reaches earth, life in the planet rejuvenates. Rivers, rivulets, streams, ponds, lakes, lagoons and oceans replenishes. Nature appears as if she has been washed out clean and lain to dry in sunshine. Grass turns lush green, squirrels birds and cows come out and the sky is once more serene. Rivers, meadows and mountains all sing songs after a rain.

Song Of The Rain. The Poem Recast.


Rainbow above water. God' promise to man.
3. SONG OF THE RAIN.

[Slightly edited and recast in the true
poetic form by P.S.Remesh Chandran, Editor,
Sahyadri Books & Bloom Books, Trivandrum]

I am dotted silver - threads
Dropped from heaven by Gods,
Nature takes me then - to
Adorn her fields and valleys.

I am beautiful pearls - plucked
From the crown of Ishtar,
By the daughter of Dawn - to
Embellish her gardens.

Rain, the most joyful thing in this world.


A Song Thrush after a torrential rain.
When I cry the hills laugh - and
When I humble myself
The flowers rejoice, and when I
Bow, all things are elated.

The 'field and cloud are lovers - me a
Messenger of mercy between them,
I quench the thirst of the field - and
Cure th'ailment of the cloud.

The 'voice of thunder declares
My 'arrival and the rainbow
A'nnounces my departure - 'am like
Earthly life which begins at
The 'feet of mad elements, ends
Un'der th'upraised wings of death.

I gently touch the windows with my soft fingers.


Green pasteure, the blessing of the rain.
Heart 'of the sea I emerge from - and
Soar with the breeze. When I see
A 'field in need I descend and
Em'brace the flowers and trees - in my
'Million little ways.

I 'gently touch the windows
With my s'oft fingers - And my
An'nouncement is a welcome - song
'All can hear but only - the sensi-
Tive can understand.

I am the laughter of the field.


Rain on house front and pavement.
I 'am the sigh of the sea,
The laughter of the field,
The 'tears of the Heaven,
'And so is with love.

Sighs 'from deep sea of affection,
Laugh'ter from colourful field
Of 'spirit; and tears from th'endless
'Heaven of memories.


Note

Rain is legendary. It is what caused and preserved life in this planet. Life which arrived in some meteorite particle and remained in the sky was brought down to the earth in a rain. When it rained incessantly for months and months, the world submerged in floods but Noah with a few samples of life forms escaped in his Ark. When water subsided he offered a sacrifice and prayer to God who solaced and assured man that he will never again destroy world through water. As a token of his covenant, he laid his beautiful bow on the rain clouds. After the rain, when the rainbow appears God is reminded of his promise to man that he will not destroy the world again with rain. It is true, after the rainbow there is no rain, though there is excellent scientific reason for the same.

The rain.
I think none of us can compose
such exquisite rainy poetry as did Kahlill Gibran of yesterdays.
We all are more proasic than the poetic of the poets
of to day ,
Let us hope some day ,
we can compose poems Kahlil Gibran's ,

Yes Dear Rathnashikamani. I read Loverme's tribute too. It is fine. Someday, as loverme likes, many will begin to write as inimitably as Gibran thereby ending all inimitability. Anyway, considering your love for the Rain Theme, I have posted a few pictures now.

Dear Jass Khurana, Prachi, Bindu and Roushan Mishra,
Thank you for your observations and comments. When Kahlil Gibran is concerned, no one in this world can know whoever were captivated for once or for a life time by this immortal poet. Certainly Sarojini Naidu and Rabindranath Tagore loved him. Because the present day world sees many poets who are lacking in musical minds, our only solace is the abundance of ancient poetry left to us as a legacy by the bygone poets. Because of their time-surpassing musical poetry we do not feel and sense poetry drying up around us. Gibran is perhaps one of the last poets of that era, a picture which probably will be the last one we see standing there when we too are leaving this world.

A beautiful poem. Like this poem because i love nature and i am passionately interested in nature. Gibron has beautifully shown all the forms of the rain.
