I'm getting old my legs are weak
My sturdy frame is starting to creak

I've seen many summer, winter & springs
Stories I could tell, of so many things

Firm, younger days, now soft and worn
Solid, strong look, now broken and torn

Memories, young children, we would play
Until their mother would chase them away

My life's been full, I fear not the end
Sweet dreams to all, from your friend

Poems That Rhyme, Please
Posted: 11/14/2006 6:36:33 AM
this one is for Whysper, not sure it rhymes but my thots and prayers are with her....


Shadows descend
the spiral staircade
into my chamber of memories of you.
Long walks, long talks,
my mind chalks
still-life sketches
on memorial slate,
etched forever inside me.
Drawing sweet, cool mountain water
from natural springs,
not a chore but an adventure,
with you.
Picking apples and cherries
and wildflowers,
good things I gleaned in your care.
A living lesson you were of
faith and wisdom, an example.
your laugh, your smile,
Life illuminated through
your twinkling brown eyes
now have abandoned you.

I will not.

Steadfastly, I cling to the memories
of my life with you
and struggle against these shadow
that viciously long to cast a pale grayness
over the "what was"
in the here and now.

As long as vitality burns and
breath resides inside of me,
you will live...
gloriously,
graciously,
not as you are,
but as you were and
will be again.
And you will reign...
The Queen of my heart,
not in shadows but
in the light of
yesterday's Eden,
today's reality
and
tomorrow's eternity.

(written for my grandmother when she passed, hope it helps you too)

Now they write poems that do not rhyme,
that make no sense, and half the time
there is no cadence meter or,
a single thing, you know, that's for
telling if it is meant to be,
understood by you all and me!

Chaucer, Shakespear, Burns, and Poe,
wouldn't know which way to go,
from beginning to the end,
nothing points the way to wend.

"It's art!" they cry with face aglow,
that might be deep, but it ain't snow!
Cowboys know that if they can't sing
a song to words, it's just a thing
that tries to be, just like a steer,
that is, the bull that once was here.

They sorta could if they tried,
or wanted to get untied.
Write a poem that made some sense -
didn't make us feel so tense.

They veer and gyre and rise and fall,
until there's no way up at all!
You can't get out, you can't get in,
wandering while your head's aspin,
You're trapped inside you cannot flee,
can you be caught eternally?

No my friend, I have a way -
all you need to do is say:
"No!" Just tell them one more time!
"It ain't a poem - it don't rhyme!"

I'm really sorry Bobby
that I haven't graced your thread
with the jingos and the jangles
that are rhyming in my head
I'm not much of a poet
I'm serious all the time
but then before I know it
I've made a silly rhyme....

love ya guy, you know it.....

just a moment in this lifetime
just one tradgedy up ahead
not knowing where each turn will lead
withing seconds you might be dead
live each day to the fullest
never dwell on the past
await the future
life goes by so fast
dont rush love
never give up on dreams
let everyone know what true love really means
love you parents cuz they will be gone one day too
it wouldnt hurt every now and then to tell your brothers or sisters,
hey i love you
never regret the things you did when you were drunk or high
say i'll see you later instead of goodbye
let you emotions show dont be scared to cry
reach for the stars
never give up on life
let life run its cycle
do what you think is right
dont get caught up in the difference of black and white
we are all the same our blood is red
and clear is the color of all the tears shed
dont judge anyone because of color religion or race
do rush yourself
live life at a steady pace

In The Fish Bowl
Posted: 11/30/2006 1:15:12 AM
In this silly fish bowl
Round and round we go
Aimlessly searching for that special one
Of whom we have no clue or know

So on and on we plod
Like sheep leaving their tracks
On a thousand hills so fair
Do I tell her how I feel?
No way! Don't you dare!

Oh, this flamin' fish bowl
Where is that special fish?
The one to call my own
So I won't be alone

It's all good
There is love
In the neighbourhood
I just look a the stars above..

Here's hoping to a brighter day
When fish like me will find our way
Into the heart of someone dear
To be forever close
Forever near

Oh! For a love like that I desire
Just asking God for ONE woman to aspire
To have that deep heart love for me alone
Never to run, leave, or postpone

If I could do it all again?
A question often pondered.
Ever since we graced this earth
most everyone has wondered.

I would do this, or not do that
We look back at our past
we would decide to end this thing
and make the other last.

We made some bad decisions then
if we could turn back time
We'd change the way our lives would end
We could correct our prime

Of all the time we wasted
and the things that brought us shame
we could go back and fill that time
and reconcile our name

But stop, and think, just who I am
and how I came to be
I'm but the sum of everything
that has happened to me

You say "But wait, the hurt I felt
Just what was there to gain"
You loved, you lost, you learned my friend
they call it "Growing pain"

To change just one thing in my past
whether good or bad
I would be on a different path
not on the one I had

To skip one of lifes lessons
that you've already learned
may compromise just who you are
and all the wisdom earned

Life is but a journey
on a one way path, no jive
healthy, sick, rich or poor
no one gets out alive

So look into your past
and think of all the things you've done
dont make the same mistakes
make better times for days to come

This is no dress rehearsal
this is life, its not a stage
the things we do today affect tomorrow
turn the page

Nice Mac, SS, and Donna

Donna, yours was particularly unusual
There is an intensity
By which I tend to marvel
I like your depth, I love your style
Come sit over here
By me for a while!

Tobs78: sad poem man...

Once the trust is gone
Will it appear again
And just go on and on
Causing sorrow and pain

Really enjoyed your poem about the dog
I think much more than a poem about a log
But it is a sad fact, it is true
The type of love we desire
Seems to only be found
From a hound

Woof

This year has almost carked it
With great disdain I say
And this old world gets colder
While I grow grey and older
Makes you think, will I ever find my fish?
So I won't be left here with my dish?
All alone...

Hey Bobby, told you so about love...my fishie should be joining me in the spring if all goes well also.....

I don't come in here often because I find it hard to make things rhyme, though I have some prose on Eyes Wide Shut's thread and pseudo haiku I'm kind of proud of on the twister thread.....but that's about it over the years, I kind of killed off my poetic soul, a shame since I used to be so prolific and creative in my twenties....

Then started working in factories and just getting worn down, body and spirit. I can't think of any work more spiritually numbing....

Anyways, congrats you two! Bobby, you know how highly I think of you and trust your judgement so a friend of yours is a friend of mine....

For eyes 12/05/06

do not weep
my stunned seduced mind
he leaves to be love's maniac
and all who love are blind

farewell my friend I've never met
peace follow through your life
thank you for the gift of words
and stay away from strife

the beauty of your soul
shone light upon my own
I hope one day you visit
and leave in place a poem....

LS

Velveteenbunny, we can clearly tell
youv'e been too long, in a wilderness hell.
Reality and dreams, they become mixed
0n imaginary acts you become fixed.
Now onto paper your thoughts have bled
To infect us all, welcome to the thread.

Bunny,
you are the writer that tickles my brain
upon my sheets you leave a stain
although you live across the globe
you are wide open for all to probe
You fill the page with sexual smut
consider yourself the poetic slut
Dont take it wrong, we love you dear
Id marry you , if you were near
