Springtime has Come


The air is still cold,
As is the granite,
The ground still frosty,
In the morning sun,
But it is clear to see,
From the buds on the trees,
That spring has finally come.
***
The fields are green,
As are the trees,
The sheep have lambed,
Out in the land,
You can clearly hear,
From the noise out there,
That spring has finally sprung.
***
The trees are budding,
As are the tulips,
The flowers are growing,
Out in the garden,
You can clearly smell,
From the pollen out there,
That spring has just begun.

It’s My Birthday


It’s my birthday,
Don’t you know,
Happy Birthday,
Here I go,
Another year,
Older not wiser,
And the wheels,
On my life,
Go round and round.

Search For Meaning


Are the curtains blue,
For my mood is too,
Are the leaves green,
To to show my pain,
How about the carpet,
Is grey my expression,
Meaning hidden in texts,
Are often overstated,
And rarely proven,
To actually exist.

Word Poetry Day: English Language


One Hundred And Seventy One Thousand Four Hundred and Seventy Six,
English words to choose from in day to day life,
Most are obsolete, such as Groak and Brabble,
There are many that sounds pretentious and obnoxious,
But then there are our day to day words,
So have a humdinger of a day,
Go out and have a glass of soothing medicament,
And add to your lexicon,
To improve your colloquy.

 

Illegal Love Of 1947


I sit in my cell,
Thinking about my sin,
Wondering what I have done,
Thinking about him,
I sit on my own.
***
I stand by the window,
Thinking what is love really,
Wondering what could have been done,
Thinking what is reality,
I stand by myself.
***
I love a man,
Thinking what is wrong,
Wondering what society has done,
Thinking why love is gone,
I love on my own.

Time Moves


Autumn leaves on Summer trees,
Honey bees on Autumn leaves,
Time moves on so we might see,
those honey bees on Autumn leaves,
and Autumn leaves on Summer trees,
When we wake tomorrow.
