Filter Poems By Author's First Name
mountains are standing still
oceans and stony hills
What is my identity?
Am I loud?
Talking to others and being able to
The World of Isolation
Can you see
the leaves of the trees?
calmly onto the ground
A Raven's Cry
quietly, grave digging
Up on the tree, a raven singing
Looking below, on a dim star's fate
A funeral, like a sad clown's parade
The Glass Ceiling
getting too crowded down here.
Drenched in condensation
hot, plump breasts squeak like wet rats
against the glinting, purple glass.
Whatever the day brings,
Flowers or tears
I will love that day to my dearest.
Will it bring hope or despair
It's all about being there,
It's all about holding hands,
It's all about saying that you can!
It's not about doctors, nurses.
In the far away mountain
In the depths of the ocean
I do not look for you
The Medieval Babysitter
The shining suit of armor can’t protect him from the cries
Of my twin baby brothers, who he’s here to supervise.
With vomit down his visor, and a baby in each arm
he rocks my brothers constantly for quiet and calm.
The King’s Lesson
The cruel king of England, Henry VIII with six wives
Is teaching students history at a school in St Ives.
Three Catherine’s, two Anne’s and one Jane Seymour,
The pope excommunicated him for ignoring his law.
