Shake, Mulleary And Go-Ethe

I

I have a bookcase, which is what
Many much better men have not.
There are no books inside, for books,
I am afraid, might spoil its looks.
But I've three busts, all second-hand,
Upon the top. You understand
I could not put them underneath -
Shake, Mulleary and Go-ethe.

II

Shake was a dramatist of note;
He lived by writing things to quote,
He long ago put on his shroud:
Some of his works are rather loud.
His bald-spot's dusty, I suppose.
I know there's dust upon his nose.
I'll have to give each nose a sheath -

To Love!

I want to love, to be lost in love!
To love just to love: Here... there...
This one, that one, another one,
Everyone! To love and not love anyone!

Remember? Forget? It’s all the same!...
Hold on or let go? Wrong? Or right?
Those who say they can love someone
Their whole life long is telling a lie!

There is in every life a Spring.
When it flowers, it must be sung.
The voice God gave us is for singing!

If I must come to ashes, dust,
Nothing, then let my night be a dawn
And let me be lost... to find myself...

Derek Walcott

Midsummer, Tobago

Broad sun-stoned beaches.

White heat.
A green river.

A bridge,
scorched yellow palms

from the summer-sleeping house
drowsing through August.

Days I have held,
days I have lost,

days that outgrow, like daughters,
my harbouring arms.

Bluebird

there's a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I'm too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I'm not going
to let anybody see
you.
there's a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
he's
in there.

there's a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I'm too tough for him,
I say,

Luigi Pirandello

Always An Animal

Without doing anything a lion is a lion:
but hapless man must brave death
to have the honor of being compared
with that animal, strong, without limit.

Nourished by the soaring thoughts of an
afflicted soul, if one reaches an apex.
A grand prize awaits. Then it is said
you truly fly like an eagle.

Write a sublime poem,
that sings in silken rhyme
of your innermost intense feelings,
and they'll say you sing like a nightingale.

What must a man do to not be likened to
an animal? can he simply do nothing?
without feeling anxious or troubled?
People would then take him for a jackass.

I Love My Dad-QAP 8X10

Why do I love you so much, Dad?
You were the only one I had.

Why was he special? Tell me, why?
His love for me will never die.

You think all dads are like yours, good?
I don't know that I think it should.

What memories are you missing?
I miss going, with him, fishing.

What are some words that'll make him glad?
I love you, and I miss you, Dad.

The Magical Night of "Sanziene"

It's a magical night in the enchanted garden,
and it's all a deep mystery,
Slowly, from the stars descends a gem,
opening a gate from heaven, again.
Wrapped in steam and light,
fairies dance in silver dresses,
and golden flowers in strands fade,
It rains blessings on the earth.
The air tremble with a song,
and mysterious dances start in the meadows.
The Earth and The Heaven are in harmony,
in the magical night of Sanziene!
But, we have a Gate that opens to Him unceasingly,
and the magical night is an eternal Morning of Grace,
for our Lord, the King... has risen!
He gave us Heaven and Eternal Life as a gift.
It's a magical night in the enchanted garden,
and it's all a deep mystery,
I hear Him among the stars, my tender Father
whispering; You will soon be with Me in Heaven!

Lost Without You (Rondel)

Without your love, I’ll be forever
lost in a world of hurt and pain.
Without your love, what will I gain?
I’ll flow in life like a sad river.

Why can we be again together?
Why can we happily walk in the rain?
Without your love, I’ll be forever
lost in a world of hurt and pain.

Ah, all the memories that I remember!
Without your love, I’ll go insane.
My love for you... it was in vain?
It will be forever a cold, dark December?
Without your love, I’ll be forever
lost in a world of hurt and pain.

I, The Poet

Prisoner of God's creative flamboyance,
I allow the wonders to guide my pen,
I overdose on beauty,
and kneel at the splendor of every sunrise.

To the universe seed

Burst from the verdant void before time.
the particles of our souls were born,
a million stars, Codeless truths blink,
to those who seek, meaning en route,
on this path to eternity.
The primordial rhythm Echoing the sacred cycle,
return, return
to the universe seed,
brood and bare.
