Kavanagh I like Kitty Stromb-something, besides innocence possibly my favorite (his writing reminds me a bit of Om)....but of Seamus Heaney I loved this, I think it broke my heart....

Mid-Term Break
by Seamus Heaney

I sat all morning in the college sick bay
Counting bells knelling classes to a close.
At two o'clock our neighbours drove me home.

In the porch I met my father crying?
He had always taken funerals in his stride?
And Big Jim Evans saying it was a hard blow.

The baby cooed and laughed and rocked the pram
When I came in, and I was embarrassed
By old men standing up to shake my hand

And tell me they were "sorry for my trouble",
Whispers informed strangers I was the eldest,
Away at school, as my mother held my hand

In hers and coughed out angry tearless sighs.
At ten o'clock the ambulance arrived
With the corpse, stanched and bandaged by the nurses.

Next morning I went up into the room. Snowdrops
And candles soothed the bedside; I saw him
For the first time in six weeks. Paler now,

Wearing a poppy bruise on his left temple,
He lay in the four foot box as in his cot.
No gaudy scars, the bumper knocked him clear.

A four foot box, a foot for every year.

I'll miss
your words that tear open my heart
but make me smile while you do it
closing my eyes to envision the world
that your poems paint
beautiful, dark and shimmering with potential
and just you
kindness, sorrow, wit and passion
brilliant swan
safe journey

mercury rising

how I selfishly wish
you could have stayed
and posted, intermittently
but that is not
who you are
and I am proud
that you honored your feelings
you had to leave
(the extreme choice)
with the same passion
that you have laughed
and cried
over these pages
and so, my friend
live, live, live
in love and life
with your trademark passion

rose I ask you have you ever seen a silver rose
one that can blossom at the slightest truth in word
who's roots grow as deep as an oak
who's pedals are big enough to sustain songbirds
one who amidst the smoke is willing to choke
the air, and make it breathable again for us normal folk
I did once and had to watch it wither from to much lime
but her roots grow deep, and she is way to sublime
was just a matter water and time

I know its silverswan but it just popped in my head....either way Im glad to see you back darlin........

Truth and nothing but the truth.

But you get lies, and nothing but lies.

Guys promise and it's only a false promise.

They claim they are for real, when nothing they say is real.

They date many women and fool all of the women.

The have sex with them all, cheating on them all.

Women constantly get hurt, and put up with the hurt.

Everything is deception, with words that are ment to decieve.

The few who fight for respect, doesn't get respected

Especially the fake people, because all they know is faking it.

Get real guys, your not fooling anyone in reality.

Don't harp on me, because you always slander me.

Serve the lord, and always be faithful to women and God.

Lines of promises, but it only sounds like a fake promise.

When your really real, reality is bad boys hate your for real!

Reversing the spell, by never falling for the spell.

A spell is decieving, and decieving is the true reason for the spell!

for all caring members here to send PMs to CdnReader (Donna) who has been admitted to hospital with some very worrisome conditions. She is alone, having just recently moved to Halifax, NS, to begin a PhD programme and won't see your messages until - hopefully - she's well enough to resume accessing the internet but I'm confident she'd be enormously cheered by any words of caring she receives from you.

Thanks, Jerry

Do I want to be back?

do i want to be back?

somewhat begs the question:
When were you ever away?

comes a time
in every old broads life

“Old broad” indeed! As if we were any of us
now or ever
anything but “old broads”!
To paraphrase your late,
no doubt beloved President:
“Ich bin eine alte tasche!”
Some, no doubt, older or more of a broad
than others, some
of us superficially “male,”
whatever the hell that is.
I’ve Webstered it and Googled it
but no one seems exactly to know..

Excuse my nievity but...
Doesn't the words " a broad"
mean that someone is in a different country?

Stupid huh?

If you beleive that A SPELL HAS BEEN CAST UPON YOU then A STRONGER BELIEF THAT YOU CHOOSE TO BE UNAFFECTED BY SUCH is the coin a phrase... "as you believe so shall it be" to the other end of the flipped coin

Only your mind and beliefs are what holds you trapped in such a belief

DOMUT who are you to judge anyone here or give your unwanted critical advice? People like you are the ones's who spoil it for the beautiful Swan and drive her away.

Shame on you for proving to her that she is not safe in her own home, go away now please and take your words with you. I love to read her and am rather ill after reading you.

I never left here Swan
I was in the shadows
drawn by any flicker
of light at your window
your lyrical fire calling
a matchstick girl like me
to be dazzled by the flight
of a Swan queen
and dare to dream
that I too might have wings

I saw you were wounded
by reading your old trail
of hearts blood, left soaking
the empty lake shore
too late, for you were gone
escaped or dying
I did not know
crying my sorrow
for all your suffering
I vowed never again

Any arrow shot at you will
hit me, piercing my flesh
to twin with you so
there will be another
bleeding when you are hurt
and very pissed off
for another scar left
on your moonlit flesh
whenever beauty/ friends
are hurt, I am sanctuary

(You are more than welcome my Swan Queen)

Old bats?
old broad?
I can't wink
so I'll just "nod!"

Flair my cape,
tip my hat,
from which you've seen me
pull a rat!.........hey, the rabbit escaped!

You so called"old broads" have more class than all those young things!

Well, maybe you'll inspire me to drag out my old step bench and work out tape...I jumped on the scales at work and realized I've only got ten pounds to my goal weight.

A few years ago when my boyfriend and I split, I lost 25 lbs, which I had always wanted to do. I am blessed with a larger bone structure, so while I didn't look fat, under my chin and my waist looked paunchy.

After losing the weight, I didn't look as good as I dreamed I would...I looked sick, and jowly....with stingy lines bracketing my mouth. Not attractive....

I've gained all of it back, and now would like to lose only 10 lbs, and keep my facial fullness (and my boobies).


by the way

by the way
what will I have to compromise?
when we are under foot
and our runaway train
has slowed
will you have me throw
the things I love
to lighten up the load?

my harshest critic
was always a mirror
reflecting not me
but others eyes

and i've stopped the
production line of self hatred
(just gotta get that
self deprecating button
under control now)

very now when I congratulate or compliment your writing, it won't come with a disparaging remark towards your best friend...yourself....

Swan I love it when you fly, you aren't just in the light you are the light and I'm a happy moth.

Doubtful, my wise friend, love you too, beautiful write.

Rose, you have class and sass, an irresistible combination.

Brizo, your heart is your soul and you have a natural and beautiful center.

Lunar, it takes a strong and good man to dance with all these incredible women. You the man!

the only thing else I have to say right now is

Beneath the low clouds that hover dirge-like,
the trees whose every leaf
is an epigram or a short
incisive glimpse of eternity,
you wander, happy child,
your barefoot soul let out to play
and the only commands, at last,
that you are compelled to obey, is
Laugh! Weep! Feel! Rejoice!
