She Seats Herself To Write

SHE SEATS HERSELF TO WRITE

She seats herself to write

Half fearing her writing
Will drive her mad while
Half hopes it will cure her

In two minds – Ah, if only
Thinks were so simple
Turmoil turmoil turmoil

Enough! Dismisses them all
And seats herself to write

Adversity

ADVERSITY

This one’s for Audrey (and many another).

I hit the road
It hit me back
We paused a mo
Now here we go

Dreams Of Glory

DREAMS OF GLORY

Hope springs eternal
While empires decay and die
Without being mourned

Friday 13th

FRIDAY 13th

The worse today gets
How easier to improve
It’s for tomorrow

Hope And Best Wishes

Miss Jones

MISS JONES

We lost one another somehow, lost our way
In a trick of the light in a mist in a maze

Gasping, grasping, grappling day after day
As seconds turn into minutes, hours, days

So long, so long by some cruel fate kept apart
Yet memories glow in my mind, dear old friend

And it’s chin up, stand firm and never lose heart
For some day we’ll revel together again in the end

Defiance

Defiance
…..
…..
DEFIANCE

Snow lies everywhere
Summer but a memory
But here come snowdrops

Sweet Home (Even In) Alabama

SWEET HOME (EVEN IN) ALABAMA

Never mind the fragrance
Of the burgeoning verdure
Feel the unspoken pressure
Diversity is a cussword here
Imported from elsewhere

Born and schooled here
Taught, “Us versus Them”
Until I took a first toke
First shock, then clarity
We are one, you and I

The Path To Peace

THE PATH TO PEACE

No more rage, no more hate, no more war
No more rage, no more hate, no more
No more rage, no more hate, no
No more rage, no more hate
No more rage, no more
No more rage, no
No more rage
No more
No

Despair’s Downside (A Four By Six)

DESPAIR’S DOWNSIDE

Never throw both your arms
Up in the air for then
There will be nothing left
To catch them with again
