Day 24- NaPoWriMo’18 – An Elegy, But With A Hope!

Published 25th April 2018 by viewsofpreethib

Day 24: And now for our prompt (optional, as always). Today, we’d like to challenge you to write an elegy – a poem typically written in honor or memory of someone dead. But we’d like to challenge you to write an elegy that has a hopefulness to it. Need inspiration? You might look at W.H. Auden’s elegy for Yeats, which ends on a note suggesting that the great poet’s work will live on, inspiring others in years to come. Or perhaps this elegy by Mary Jo Bang, where the sadness is shot through with a sense of forgiveness on both sides.

I am not sure if I have done justice for today’s prompt but this is what I could write about “Elegy with hopefulness”.

An Elegy, But With A Hope!

How do I write an Elegy,
A hopeful one,
When my heart is edgy,
Of memories I have none.

Memories of your pamper and love,
When you were alive,
Neither side of grandparents,
Were attached with sentiments.
