Reflections on the movie, Dr. Zhivago

This is one of my oldest poems slightly revised. It is a pure love poem, on an image basis, giving my impressions of the movie, “Dr. Zhivago”. For me, “Dr. Zhivago” ranks among the greatest love stories ever written (by Boris Pasternak). Made into an absolutely brilliant epic movie in 1965, it tells an unforgettable story of love, war, winter, and revolution that, once seen, will haunt you forever.

A name whispers itself to eternity
and sheds a tear
and cries to itself
for the part it has lost, but has never forgotten

Like a thousand snowflakes
glazed in the sun’s dawn
it melts away two hearts
and turns stone . . .
into tears . . .

And two loves are made one
on the eternal plain
and melt themselves into the mind
as each snowflake disappears
with the dawns new light

The dew of the Seasons rushes on to meet them
and lends a soft shoulder to a hard plight
as the flowing strands of two loves
weave themselves together
in an eternal cushion
to soften the blow
which has intercepted life in its midst

The wind blows apart in four directions
yet meets in a spot known not to man
and stops
and rests
and creates a magic fairy tale
that will last

So, is the story of Dr. Zhivago
who loved a girl named Lara
thru time
and space
and war
and political upheaval

Until last
did he die
without her
so close – but so very far
of a broken heart
