    My three, Bliss Carman- dedication poems.

    I composed first two last week and the third

    poem, very early this morn.


    (1.)



    New Dawn, Blessed Gems With Love So Gifted



    From morning glow, into soft basking day,

    Sacred the time, in life and love we pray,

    We converse, we laugh, and hope we embrace-

    Fallen man, rectified by God's pure grace.



    For divine light that gifts its tender glows,

    Healing us from our pains, sorrows and woes,

    Upon earth and we mortals so in need

    Of saving balm as in darkness we bleed.



    Evidenced by Nature's constant gifts

    Words heavenly sent that our souls uplift

    We so blessed, can thank our living God

    As upon this our earth, we daily trod.



    Robert J. Lindley, 8-21-2021

    Cumque esset mane, meridiem haec anima et haec leniter demulcens blanditiis

    *********

    (2.)



    Beauty Of Sunset And A Life With Love



    Behold! Dawn with its ravishing beauty

    Life must be more than a slavish duty

    From golden shores unto whispering hills

    Let love enter, until treasures it spills

    Understand precious touch of womankind

    For upon earth - that is the gold we find.



    Accept all we have and our daily bread

    With love's bounty one is truly well fed

    Wake unto morning's new resplendent calls

    One is blessed without great golden walls.



    Walk with Nature unto its forest crown

    Flee a spell away from idle town

    See and feel the wonders of God's own hands

    As life's beauty gifts its most wondrous strands.



    Robert J. Lindley, 8-21-2021

    In medio annorum vivifica me dulcis rufus occasum

    ********

    (3.)



    Love Exists As Notes From A Warbler's Throat



    Love exists as notes from a warbler's throat

    On life's fleeting winds truth so gaily floats

    Over mountains steep and sweet meadows below

    Bringing along heart's beauty in its tow

    Salvation comes with prayer's truest breath

    Conquering woes and even mortal death.



    Earth has awaken since first dawning of Man.

    Grinning, dancing, spinning- as only it can.



    Life and Nature need not fight as they do

    Certain harmony is long overdue

    Love cries out life must find a better way

    Than sad darkness, with its shadowy grays.



    Earth has awaken since first dawning of Man.

    Grinning, dancing, spinning- as only it can.



    Love exists as notes from a warbler's throat

    On life's fleeting winds truth so gaily floats

    Over mountains steep and sweet meadows below

    Bringing along heart's beauty in its tow.

    I Swear A Sincere Oath Each Arriving New Morn

    Amidst wreckage and sorrows dwelling deep
    I fight to beautiful memories keep
    To break dark that threatens to engulf me
    So oft swamped by storms from crashing seas
    I a floating leaf in massive expanse
    Lonely and bereft of heart's true romance.

    I walk beneath wondrous beaming blue skies.
    Ever seeking that which time now denies.

    I swear sincere oath each arriving morn
    To thus battle, to mend this life so torn
    Not as a warrior to brave or too proud
    Or a timid soul hiding in the crowd
    But instead as a hopeful refugee
    One so desperate and too mad to flee.

    I walk beneath wondrous beaming blue skies.
    Ever seeking that which time now denies.

    Once eager heart beat in me and much more
    Long ago, I strolled sweet white sand shores
    Singing with light and dancing in fine tune
    Under summer sun in the month of June
    Watching rolling waves and that deep blue sea
    As a young lad, not this old refugee.

    I walk beneath wondrous beaming blue skies.
    Ever seeking that which time now denies.

    I swear sincere oath each arriving morn
    To thus battle, to mend this life so torn
    Not as a warrior to brave or too proud
    Or a timid soul hiding in the crowd
    But instead as a hopeful refugee
    One so desperate and too mad to flee.

    I walk beneath wondrous beaming blue skies.
    Ever seeking that which time now denies.

    New Life Given And Glows Of A Golden Crown

    A pity, stark indifference and sad
    Paths taken into that darkness and woe
    It is not that world and all life is bad
    As willful blindness we let evil grow
    In course of that we build a blacken room
    Mold iron shutters to deny the light
    Glorify our dancing in that black tomb
    And learn to love evil that parades at night!

    Yet if eyes are opened we can see
    Just how deeply we into darkness fell
    Fathomless horror found we seek to flee
    Away from those blinding gates of Hell
    Realization wakes to light's sweet breath
    Salvation leading to a clear road seen
    Away from eager hands of fated death
    And former life that was truly obscene!

    Rising to dawn's glow and a golden crown
    We again find life and love's blessed touch
    Walking from our former shallow renown
    We may again paint with a joyous brush!

    Memories Of The Long Sad Journey

    Bitter cold that Saturday morning, I could see my breath parade before me.
    No breakfast as I had quietly left the house and started my trek back to our old home.
    Memories flooded my brain with each new turn along that dusty road.
    Along with questions about why I was now so rebellious.

    Quicker, walk quicker my heart and soul demanded. Do you not want to touch the
    bedroom door where your father slept? Slept before that long dark sleep.
    Slept in such pain and sorrow?
    Yes, bellowed back my invisible friend.

    frosty morning dew
    loose pebbles crunched beneath feet
    earth, morning sky paled

    Halfway there, with my heart racing and anticipation heightened
    I could almost imagine a real touch. A real touch of he- now lost to all eternity!
    What wild thoughts come to a teenage soul and mind in its greatest of pains and sorrows.
    Can death be denied? Can one bring back even for the briefest moment a loved one..
    A father, a father!

    blackbirds silent view...
    wrapped in winter's sheen
    light ahead, welcomed beacon

    Walking up the short drive and onto the front porch. Only gone away half a year and such change found!
    Silence, silence engulfed my thoughts. Struck numb as I entered our vacated home.
    Home were my father had exhaled his last breath. Hand shaking as I reach for that doorknob..
    What would I see? His ghost? Would I dare touch his ghost?
    Walked into a cold and lonely room--nothing!
    No smile, no hug, no long awaited touch!
    Only tears, tears by the bucketful.
    What had I come to find? Was I crazy to want to see, talk, touch one more time?

    one old shoe, lonely
    broken window, dusty mounds
    bleak abandoned walls

    I knew, knew this was it. Life gave no overs and no going back to happier times.
    The terror of that reality, would it ever leave. Would it?
    Father was dead and my life was over.
    I walked out into this dark world ready to fight.
    Fighting to be left alone, with my never ending sorrow and its sweet cuts....
    Cuts embraced to keep my rage, to yet again feel,
    defeat the icy numbness in a rebellious teenager's aching heart.

    Just something I doodled over Breakfast
    Ich bin ein Holzfäller und fühl mich stark,
    Ich schlaf des Nachts und hack am Tag.

    Er ist ein Holzfäller und fühlt sich stark,
    Er schläft des Nachts und hackt am Tag.

    Ich fälle Bäume, ich ess mein Brot,
    Ich geh auf das WC,
    Am Mittwoch geh ich shopping,
    Kau Kekse zum Kaffee.

    Er fällt die Bäume, er isst sein Brot,
    Er geht auf das WC,
    Am Mittwoch geht er shopping,
    Kaut Kekse zum Kaffee.

    Er ist ein Holzfäller und fühlt sich stark,
    Er schläft des Nachts und hackt am Tag.

    Ich fälle Bäume und hüpf und spring,
    Steck Blumen in die Vas'
    Ich schlüpf in Frauenkleider
    Und lümmel mich in Bars.

    Er fällt Bäume, er hüpft und springt,
    Steckt Blumen in die Vas'
    Er schlüpft in Frauenkleider
    Und lümmelt sich in Bars...?

    Er ist ein Holzfäller und fühlt sich stark,
    Er schläft des Nachts und hackt am Tag.

    Ich fälle Bäume, trag Stöckelschuh
    Und Strumpf- und Büstenhalter.
    Wär gern ein kleines Mädchen
    So wie mein Onkel Walter.

    Er fällt die Bäume, trägt Stöckelschuh
    Und Strumpf- und Büstenhalter...?

    Tragic, When Innocence Was Lost And Love Fled
    (Youth, Dreams And Reality Series) number 1



    Like lake June swans once so were she and I
    Passionate romance money cannot buy
    Coupled and in heart's fervor we stood
    Giving into our fever all we could
    She the flighted arrow, I the strong bow
    In our innocent youth fearing no blows
    Living love's bounty, dreaming wondrous dreams
    In sweet blindness, not seeing world's black schemes.

    O' deepest sorrows why were you thus cast
    Allowing joy to fade away so fast
    Had we not with truest hearts in love fled
    Together, spirit and soul therein wed
    Watching beauty of night's heavenly skies
    World's evils we gave no thought or replies
    Living love's bounty, dreaming wondrous dreams
    In sweet blindness, not seeing world's black schemes.

    How I now so grieve that ill-fated day
    In my epic misery bow to pray
    For sweet mercy and yet another shot
    To live forever in our moonlit spot
    Swearing to always refuse any goodbye
    Such dark reality firmly deny
    Living love's bounty, dreaming wondrous dreams
    In sweet blindness, not seeing world's black schemes.

    Like lake June swans once so were she and I
    Passionate romance money cannot buy
    Coupled and in heart's fervor we stood

    She the flighted arrow, I the strong bow
    In our innocent youth fearing no blows
    Living love's bounty, dreaming wondrous dreams
    In sweet blindness, not seeing world's black schemes.

    (Youth, Dreams And Reality Series) number 2



    Beauty waltzed in on my diamond dreams
    While I a young lad wading rushing streams
    There bright roses and lush gardens in bloom
    Bringing me back from the darkness and gloom
    How oft we wonder why happiness flees
    Despite our prayers, our sincerest pleas
    Yet tomorrow always comes, life moves on
    Where we find beauty in a simple stone.

    I wake from dreams and eager dawn I beg
    Give me back love and my young dancing legs
    For in this tired ole spirit hope still shines
    I see Nature's beauty smell scented pines
    Walk the ancient trails and rest a bit
    Thank God my bloodline gives me heart and grit
    Oft I wonder who now walks these old shoes
    As lonely builds its walls and sings its blues.

    Sun sets a glowing red, life welcomes soft night
    Such a soulful peace allows no dark fright
    In youth I found that time was not a friend
    For took away joy as happy days end
    And some nights radiant moon its rays hid
    Reminding, fairy tales are just for kids
    In those somber thoughts, her dear face appears
    And then in waiting heart love romance sears.

    Beauty waltzed in on my diamond dreams
    While I a young lad wading rushing streams

    And In Rhapsody And Colors Life Flows

    There in dear morning's soft glistening rays
    White beach sand squishing between eager toes
    Magical humming as waves blue sky sways
    And in rhapsody and colors life flows
    About, beyond, into eternity
    I see an ant, its miracle divine
    Endless waves splash into infinity
    Dare I ever try to my soul define?

    Do we see truth in blessing of sunlight?
    Or dark in our desire to always fight?

    Through scenic beauty and heart's tender beats
    I sift sweet flavors of salt laced air
    Graving far more than life's woes to defeat
    I marvel at the birds flying in pairs
    What do they think of dangerous mankind
    Can they know we are lost seeking our way
    Amongst trash we so often leave behind
    Racing ever onward without delay?

    Do we see truth in blessing of sunlight?
    Or dark in our desire to always fight?

    I walk in a soft daze wondering why
    Life to us seems a magnificent mystery
    We think foolishly to our flaws deny
    When evidence emits from history
    Then a fine gem appears, a strange seashell
    Its radiance singing a lullaby
    Immediately comes a wondrous spell
    Saying, "your life exists to heaven fly".

    Do we see truth in blessing of sunlight?
    Or dark in our desire to always fight?

    There in dear morning's soft glistening rays
    White beach sand squishing between eager toes
    Magical humming as waves blue sky sways
    And in rhapsody and colors life flows.

    Robert J. Lindley, June 24, 1979
    Romanticism

    Old Note-
    I hope so deeply that life stops being so damn hard
    In my dreams it promises such wondrously sweet rewards.


    New Note-
    Even now with rhapsody and colors fading
    Life cries out, live and love- we are still grading.

    From Poetic Thoughts On Mankind And Its Accursed Fate

    Hark! Grasp firm precious golden ray of moonlight
    Wrap in heart's grip, let seep into awaiting dreams
    Release it next dreadful, hellish-cast storming night
    To delight in its saliently flowing bright streams.

    With fervent prayers, bid high Heavens to cast down
    Manna and wine to the feast-born unwashed masses
    Without need for a foolish king and crushing crown
    Or enslavement and wars from rebellious classes.

    Flesh and blood are wont to beg unto shining skies
    Filled with grieving's of broken souls and lost hope
    Surrounded by dark world and deep burgeoning lies,
    Ever present rock strewn dangers of its pitted slopes.

    Alas! Tis it not true, chains of our mortal curse
    Groom enticing pathways for us to do our worse?

    Dare we this proclivity to set asunder
    And thus, into redeeming light far further wander?

    That Reality Of Sorrows, That Life May One Day Bring

    In twain asunder, darkness broke within
    life became a sardonic little grin,
    gone were those far happier summer days
    my princess and her soft heavenly ways
    with sweet-felt Spring glows, her beautiful smiles-
    her dancing moves, in her elegant style
    nevermore radiance that heart so stirs
    now only gashes cut by Fated spurs.

    In twain asunder, darkness broke within.
    Life became a sardonic little grin.

    And future hope into ashes turned
    all of our dreams ravaged and spurned,
    no more dreaming, thinking life to be sure
    deep sorrows born from what was truly pure
    this the handiwork and death's coming blows
    as midnight shrieking of ravenous crows
    O' can one such horror ever deny
    when such dark-cast rains falls from wicked sky?

    In twain asunder, darkness broke within.
    Life became a sardonic little grin.

    its cold daggers stab to hear piercing cries
    And it lies, promising a peaceful sweet rest"- RJL )

    ( And one asked, what future awaits ahead-
    the silent forest whispered- you may far too soon see )

    When Deep Darkness And Shadows Race To Fore

    Heartache is oft an invisible cut
    Within the silent and deadly new field
    Black boulders bring amidst deepening ruts,
    Calamity, which oft one finds no shield.

    Flung from sticky webs of hideous dark
    Into the depths of an innocent soul
    Unrelenting, to make a galling mark,
    Its newborn despair taking wicked toll.

    What to do to stop such dark woe-some flow
    Destroying past happiness with its veil
    Injecting agony as a new show,
    Whilst poor soul often slides past gates of hell.

    Dawn's welcoming sun is no longer seen
    Nor those bright golden beams that heart so cheer
    As despair casts forth its shadowy sheen,
    Lost hope, becomes sad shades of looming fear.

    Robert J. Lindley,

    From A Sad Book, A Poet's Deep, Heartfelt Lament

    Fear I, morn brings not glistening of dew
    That in youth's vanished seeds of demise
    Wisps of shadows in dark meadows grew
    Midnight sent forth melancholy surprise.

    Alas, soft wings of hope fled far away
    As falling leaves of silence too soon roar
    I cannot defeat intense coming grays
    In dying dreams, I land not on new shores.

    I sing song of a dear paradise lost
    Radiant life with love and abundant
    To see yet again glowing gems of frost
    O' mercy Lord, a sweeter life please grant.

    With falling leaves of silence's epic roar,
    In dying dreams, I land not on new shores.

    Default Know that there are others who PRAY for You and Your Wife at this time, and forever.

    Robert...we can feel your sorrow in all of your words poetic. Bless you both!

    I may be older than most. I may say things not everybody will like.
    But despite all of that. I will never lower myself to the level of Liars, Haters, Cheats, and Hypocrites.
