Poetry by Liana Margiva

No, I don’t want to die in the Spring

Can’t deprive all the flowers of my love,

And the birds of all colors won’t have to mourn

At the break of the dawn finding me in the backyard.


Yellow leaves will my treason forgive

As they flutter around in search of my tomb,

Of the one who adored them so much in her life.

Only snow will triumph my demise

My indiff’rence to Winter forgive it will not.


Earth, I won’t let you gobble up my flesh,

I refuse to be eaten by sickening worms.

I have suffered too much in this life to deserve

Such disgusting an end!


Let the Ocean inherit my tormented heart,

‘Cause the Ocean’s the one who I always adored,

Who did not give me pain in exchange for my love.

Let it have my ashes, the remnants of flesh

That concealed lonely soul of a mortal.


I will turn into wave for eternity’s length,

And the freedom that’s been long awaited will gain.

I’ll return to the land and will foam up the sand,

To the land where I longed for the peace and the love.

And will give it a sweet and adoring embrace.

Even in death you would embrace the seasons--I love that. I can sense your pull to the sea, to your final resting place, your sepulcher. Emotive and well written! ~Hugs, Elizabeth

I too chose the ocean, to wash away all my sins, and cleanse me forever more Liana!
To be washed away and spread out to the far corners of the Earth, sea and creatures to far more lasting abilities, may our spirits take us there...
This poem touched my heart and soul!
YOU write beautifully and I began tracking and following your heart as of 2:00A. our time! Glad to have met you spiritually!

My dear Liana,

I note with amazement that within one month's time so many authors of AD have felt touched in the same way by the sentiments of your beautiful poem. You speak with love and adoration of the wonder's of Nature and your not wanting to taint even the flowers with their loss of your love nor God's birds with their mourning.

You have spoken to me a number of times about your abiding love for the ocean, and it is fitting that you should will your remains to that which gave you love without demand. In your life you have known torment and loneliness, but in your passing you will be blessed by knowing peace and love.

Let me speak now for so many others here at Authorsden that we openly share with you our love for the great gifts you have presented us time and again with your words of wisdom and deep understanding of some of the torments in our own lives. Through your insight and the magic of the concerns of your heart, our burdens have been lightened and our souls have been touched.

Authorsden is a community of love and you, my dear Liana, are at the center of our admiration and our friendship. Let your loneliness take flight, for we are here with you and for you.

With love and respect,

Liana - Enjoyed your profound poem. It has the feeling of depth.
Especially liked:

No, I donít want to die in the Spring

Canít deprive all the flowers of my love,

And the birds of all colors wonít have to mourn

At the break of the dawn finding me in the backyard.

and the imagery of the calm resolution of:

I will turn into wave for eternityís length,

And the freedom thatís been long awaited will gain.

Iíll return to the land and will foam up the sand,

To the land where I longed for the peace and the love.

And will give it a sweet and adoring embrace.

Especially liked, "I will turn into wave for eternityís length,"

John Masefield's, "Sea Fever", comes immediately to my mind Liana --the last line of the last verse, "And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over", when I read your line, "Let the ocean inherit my tormented soul" -- a very beautiful poetic exercise - peace and love to you Liana -- JMW

Just as we want to control our lives, we also would like to control the curcumstances of our demise--such as you not wishing to deprive the birds and flowers of your warm attention. But whether you do or don't, your wonderful poem expresses your wishes.

I love this line: "Iíll return to the land and will foam up the sand,"

I read this poem four times... It is an ontological spiritual flower diffusing scent of wonders and beauty. "NO, I DONíT WANT TO DIE IN SPRING" inspires and and stimulates creativity.

I must congratulate Master Anatol Kardiukov for his outstanding translation of "NO, I DONíT WANT TO DIE IN SPRING".

I salute Poet Liana Margiva for this beautiful composition.

In respect and admiration,

Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU
