Okay. So we’ve discussed politics, social issues, the arts, universities, crime, and other interesting and sometimes off key issues, so now I think we should see what RA readers are made of when it comes to poetry.
Who knows, maybe if there’s enough stuff we can publish under a fake name, nom de plume, pseudonym, and flog it off to some arty wanker that thinks he’s found some new and great hidden talent.
Which of course, will not be me.
However, I shall start the ball rolling (stop laughing you in the corner).
And thus ladies and gentlemen, I give you….
To Remember You
To remember you with a summer’s breeze,
warm on my face as it blows,
caress the flowers that sway in your path,
waves of grass green in motion.
To remember you as autumn leaves fall,
delicate and fragile in their beauty,
falling to nestle one with the earth,
a single leaf so unique.
To remember you on a winter morn,
warming sun melts mist and fog,
life to take in the weak heat,
crisp and clear, ice crystal shimmer.
To remember you with the birth in spring,
rose buds bloom and flower,
a world awkens from a frozen slumber,
to live, to love, to laugh again.
