    This Night Under Pale And Pallid New Moon

    In pale moonlight I mourn for thy soft hand
    for your loss, is more than I can withstand
    you were my all, orchard's sweet fruited bough
    alone in hollow realm, this heart weeps now.

    This night under pale and pallid new moon
    waiting in your favorite month of June
    each gust of your gentle breeze a godsend
    upon this eager face, hope never ends.

    Come swiftly my love, eternity calls
    from its golden depths, its most loving halls
    I hear your sweet voice and beg your dear touch
    no other treasure bequeaths me so much
    as does this fleeting hour you and I meet
    with prayer, I again fall at your feet.

    Quote:
    "Without a knowledge of mythology much of the elegant literature
    of our own language cannot be understood and appreciated."

    Understand, Life Is Not All Sweet Bread And Roses


    Yes we that write and boldly do so with deep dark
    often fire our volleys, in verses bold and stark
    using mythology and its heroes and beasts
    hungry poets, we dare dine on fantastic feasts!

    Walking through ancient castles, with deep murky moats
    with courage swimming in our true poetic oats
    Living dreams, splashing ink upon freer page
    venting from heart, expelling vile from raging rage!

    Yes, such is true, tis not for those of kinder stock
    those of more timid fare, that such verses so shock
    yet this poetic soul, its search, its true calling
    must walk a truer path, else face its down falling!

    Understand, life is not all sweet bread and roses
    Should we ink it, only as honey-dip posies?

    I Went Out Into The Naked City

    I went out into the naked city
    to watch splattering and pouring wet rain
    times in life things are a damn sad pity
    when epic loss runs hard against the grain.

    I danced in the lonesome low moonlight
    with nerves frayed deep into these broken bones
    beneath heaven's glory, rushed soft starlight
    as Time echoed its lost sadden tones.

    I drank darkness, to birth new falling stars
    for new love was hiding deep within me
    refugee from hurt's fleeing bitter scars
    with hope and heart both begging to be free.

    I found new beginnings, in that sweet roar
    Love swore to find me, through that open door!

    Seeking Honor And Rectitude In This Dark World

    When pen was, a mighty razor-sharp blade
    pulled from scabbard, made from bright-red blood
    legion were deep cuts, its slashes once made
    to separate true Life, from Earthen crude.

    If these veins could again birth sweeter ink
    no longer stain virgin paper with dread
    soul renew, not further into dark sink
    in caverns reserved for walking dead!

    No longer can sorrows drive praying heart
    nor grasp fortitude to seek hope's dreams
    Life held, when poetry played its part
    winning battles over mere mortal schemes.

    Alas! Pen now finds its ink hard frozen
    Death of poet's spirit Fate has chosen!

    Eggs He Ate Thinking, Life Is Just Not Fair

    When high noon rays waken a sleeping man
    window's glare never thought into his plan
    just another problem in a broken life
    blends with misery since he lost his wife.

    With angry scowl, rises to pull the shade
    thinking damn that bright sun that God hath made
    then stomach cries feed me you lazy bum
    be quick about it, do not act so dumb.

    Into kitchen, dirty dishes and all
    once it was spotless, before Love's great fall
    there by the table lay her wedding ring
    bitter broken memory, great the sting.

    Yet noonday sun, its rays having no care
    Eggs he ate thinking, Life is just not fair.

    Sonnet, ( Divorce, Waking To Its Sad Aftermath )

    Old Note: Deleted...

    New Note:
    Decades flown on by, memory that still haunts,
    midnight echoes into noonday sun, sadly and badly
    still this soul, cry out hello, just to hiss and taunt...

    As Those Western Blue Skies Up And Roared

    Cowboy rode his horse, gentle on the reins
    crossing hot prairie, while in lonesome pains
    yet rainbow song played in beating heart
    for soon he and his love, would never part.

    She a beauty with only eyes for he
    with an eager love larger than a sea
    her gentle touch, her lips gave sweet treasure
    she gave hope, in an unequal measure.

    From hill crest he soon saw her standing there
    in her radiant glow, nothing more fair
    spurring faithful mount, to her arms he went
    to ravenous angel heaven surely sent!

    As those western blue skies up and roared
    Cowboy knew Love, he had truly scored!

    Written from a very vivid dream I had last night.
    I guess I've watched a thousand cowboy shows in my log life, but this dream seemed so real.
    Delayed writing this but somehow it forced me to sit down and compose, as the pressure to compose just became truly immense.

    As Low Midnight Sounds Into Sad Soul Seep

    When aching heart pleads deep for break of day
    As low midnight sounds into sad soul seep
    Lonesome the solitude that has its way
    When stabbing sorrows deny peaceful sleep.

    Wind outside blows in, gusts of prancing pain
    A cold that births chills of darkened dread
    Echoes of her kiss, memories remain
    As dead dreams float above her empty bed.

    Great hard blows hit with chiming of the clock
    As visions parade before teary eyes
    Head pounds like a sledge hammer breaking rock
    When recalling her vows and well spun lies.

    Wind outside blows in, gusts of prancing pain.
    Echoes of her kiss, memories remain.

    Sonnet, "Dark" ( When Dark Of Night Delivers Those Lost Love Blows )

    Note, Recollections of youthful loss and nights of sorrowing pains,
    wild youth costs, lost loves and echoes that yet visit on dark nights
    when shadows come out to play..

    In Dreams, She Saw Love's True Faith As Her Goal

    With her heart sad she wept, her tears fell deep
    his love was bad, his vows he did not keep,
    each new morn, she found her bed held no prize
    he had crept off, left her with his dark lies

    She found her wealth, his heart it did so stir
    more so than her charms, he was a true cur,
    with words he said, my true love, I love you
    as she heard, her heart knew it was not true.

    Yet love had ate its sweet bread and its fill
    she would fall for his charms and his old spill,
    her pals would say, tis true, he is no good
    kick him to the curb, you know that you should.

    In dreams, she saw love's true faith as her goal.
    Yet his dark lies, in the end, took their toll.

    As You Have Your Cup Of Joe, Each New Morn

    As you have your cup of Joe, each new morn
    Think of Life as dawn in glory is born
    See those gleaming rays sun cast in its glow
    For this world does daily its splendor show.

    If you want more try to hear birds singing
    For Mother Nature her gift is bringing
    Greater joy and beauty that pleases man
    As was its call and in God's divine plan.

    As day flows forth with its many treasures
    Consider Love's gifts, its deepest pleasures
    Under soft moon and with her heart so true
    Give thanks for sweet kisses as they accrue.

    As you have your cup of Joe, each new morn.
    Think of Life as dawn in glory is born.

    Set I This Poetry Task, This Fine Morn

    Set I, task to write about this cruel world's starkness
    not so easy, for its true depths are wide and massive
    Yet we, view evil world with light cast into the darkness
    of poverty, starvation, and reactions far too passive!

    SET I, TIME TO BEND MY PEN TO THIS IMPORTANT TASK
    lay out a few words of love's enlightened hope
    For to learn, to heal, we must first see to dare to ask
    why this darkness invades, into every horoscope!

    I found, Truth and Love to be the two golden keys
    REALITY PROVES ONE MUST EXIST WITH THE OTHER
    We may be lost fish swimming in storming black seas
    yet always, we may look back to find the Love of Mother!

    Set I, clear goal to write a few words as a gift to all
    before my waiting soul, hears its final greatest call!

    At A Crossroads Poet, Hears That True Call,
    (dedicated, to my friend with appreciation)


    At a crossroads, poet finds waiting pen
    beneath dust that hides wiles of evil men
    ink then cast forth on an eager blank page
    from heartfelt and pure soul of wizened sage.

    At a crossroads truths, one can not deny
    nor neglect reigning beauty of night skies
    as stars twinkle and moonlight bright parades
    through wafting breeze and all Nature hath made.

    At a crossroads poet, hears that true call
    music that inflames passions in us all
    for such inspires deep love and gifted hands
    with verse from far above, our earthly lands.

    At a crossroads, where sincere life one lives.
    Soul rests free within, writes sweet words to give.

    Snow White Ground, As She Paid Her Last Respects

    Fallen tombstone, snow covered in soft white
    sleeping guest, in heavy slumber - no light
    once a star, across heavens he did fly
    now a memory, with her asking why.

    A rascal, a sailor, girl in each port
    heart an impregnable shield, a steel fort
    sweet honey were those words, love falsely cast
    fantasy spun, his death left her aghast.

    Alone she had walk to that silent grave
    contemplating promises he had made
    limping as she went away, foot so sore
    thinking, in dark he rests, he lies no more.

    Nobody saw her spinning roundhouse blow.
    As down went tombstone, into soft white snow!

    Sonnet, ( When One Just Feels A Swift Kick Is Needed )

    Note: This was originally written in 1979, as a 24 verse poem.
    My muse talked me into editing it down and morphing it into a sonnet.
    Yes, folks-- On rare instances, I actually listen to her......
    She made a great point-- about "vengeance is best when served cold."
    And now after this short, gratifying break, I will return to composing
    for my renewed - Poets Tribute Series.
    Up next, second poet, Edgar Allen Poe...

    Those Rosy Red Lips That Stir These Loins

    My sweet lover, let thy long hair glow bright,
    upon memories of love and our first night,
    as the aura of this morn's gleaming sun,
    gifts us a love, that can not be undone.

    My sweet lover, beg I passionate kiss,
    when sleeping, your soft touch I do so miss,
    those rosy red lips that stir these loins,
    until dawn's waking, we this world rejoin.

    My sweet lover, lets rise to meet this day,
    face this world, and in romance thus stay,
    together shower in our immense love,
    floating on air, upon white clouds above.

    My sweet lover, let thy long hair glow bright.
    Upon memories of love, our first night.

    Let Truth Burn Away Your Deceptive Cloak, Sonnet Doubles
    Sonnet Doubles:

    First sonnet

    Let Truth Burn Away Your Deceptive Cloak

    Let truth burn away your deceptive cloak
    lower vanity's shield, go have a smoke,
    even if, a diamond, in love's gold crown
    life shows greater rise, after falling down!

    In vanity's false, self-proclaimed state
    live many victims of their own dark hate,
    darkness, its power holds so many keys
    to locks and chains, stopping those who would flee!

    Look inward to devilish chains of hate
    beg mercy and tempt not, a darker fate,
    seek the moment, to let kindness prevail
    cross joyous oceans under, pure white sails!

    Black cloud that holds, your happy life at bay
    Is but selfish sin, you have given sway!

    2nd sonnet

    When Night Comes, Be Not Afraid Of Its Dark

    When dawn sends rays of hope into your life
    allow its golden glow, to wipe away strife
    rise to give deep thanks and bow head to pray
    seize its power to keep dark world at bay!

    When new day, brings a stormy afternoon
    believe brighter times will be coming soon
    hitch your horse to wagon and give free reign
    to trod to heart's true desire and remain!

    When night comes, be not afraid of its dark
    although new scenes may be scarily stark
    have faith that again com'eth morn's first rays
    blessings sent to all who sincerely prays!

    Fear apathy that oft birth newfound woes
    And world's black lies that cry-- anything goes!

    Thus this first poem and another were born that day-from those four inspired verses. Thank you Nina for giving me permission to cite your blog and my first stanza verses it inspired that day, as the inspired source!
    Written for the Alexander Pushkin tribute but was lost to me until reminded. I then searched and found it today.God bless...

    Thank I, That Purity Of Heart's Deepest Romantic Trills
    (Inspired by verses that came to me, inspired by Nina's blog)

    Her soliciting eyes, gift promises of hot flaming Love.
    As ruby red, sensual lips offer honey from above
    She golden, romantic goddess born of heavenly skies
    Presents beauty, fantastic ardor that we mortals so prize!

    Within passion's might and its majestic resplendent glows.
    Cries sweet birth of truest poetry's beauty, that Love shows.

    Thank I, that purity of heart's deepest romantic trills
    Echoes vibrations that seek to stir our Love that over-spills
    Into longings, honey dreams set on tables of bright fruits
    As richest feasts, that our mortal desires so deeply suits!

    Within passion's might and its majestic resplendent glows.
    Cries sweet birth of truest poetry's beauty, that Love shows.

    Relive I, songs in night trysts that her kisses did inspire
    Delirious and eager burns of her sexual fires
    Where we woke to dawn's brilliant and enchanting golden rays
    And with united hearts, bowed our grateful heads to pray!

    Within passion's might and its majestic resplendent glows.
    Cries sweet birth of truest poetry's beauty, that Love shows.

    Years have so swiftly flown by, now poetic heart recalls
    Yesterdays of Love, its treasures in its great golden halls
    Such grandeur, truest of grace in her passionate embrace
    Brought eternal longings such as no power can erase!

    Within passion's might and its majestic resplendent glows.
    Cries sweet birth of truest poetry's beauty, that Love shows.

    Words Carried By Art-winds That Poetry Blows

    When in a dying poet's last born gasp,
    brilliant new verse his sad soul thus sings.
    In its truth, those rewarded may this grasp
    beauty is its renewed birth, each Spring.

    From gentle spirit, happiness is born.
    From this savage world, poet's heart is torn.

    Death rides a black horse called Fated Time
    its galloping hooves, covered in blood red.
    Against all of mankind's dark, barbaric crimes
    its race victorious when each is dead!

    From gentle spirit, happiness is born.
    From this savage world, poet's heart is torn.

    Words carried by art-winds that poetry blows
    through whispering canyons of paradise.
    Their weights beyond what infinity knows
    and in hope that life's and love may suffice!

    From gentle spirit, happiness is born.
    From this savage world, poet's heart is torn.
