Poems on various subjects in various styles. I hope that you like them
Gladioli; troupe of dancers flinging green arms above their heads. The spirit of life; of gay romance; their florid petals of flaming red.
June and July, how soon they fly but, while they're here, let's smile and cheer.
I wish you were here; I wish you could see sun-shimmer, like starlight, pour over the sea; hear wild blue waves crashing upon golden sand;
Love is not in the skin; the flesh; the hair; the eyes or teeth. True love is found within the heart that’s beating underneath.
The long, slow kiss of summer; enjoy it while it lasts; the dripping honey sunshine; easy breezes brushing past; the sweet nothings of bird song Nature murmurs in your ear;
The buzzing bees can never rest; always upon their nectar quest; crawling on daffodils and daisies they must think I am very lazy just lying on my back and snoozing
Little book mite, munching on a page; chewing sayings by some ancient sage; while you’re busy feasting on a book don’t you ever stop to take a look at the pretty words which you devour;
As you sleep, my heart doth sleep and, in your serene beauty, makes its bed.
A picture used to hang upon my wall; a picture of green fields and hills and trees; silver rivers and pure, white waterfalls; blue skies and happy song birds flapping free.
3 Magic Words Three magic words, when spoken, the gates of heaven, open and make the world, bright beautiful and new like music they are to hear; gold dust sprinkled on the air
If green shoots were far too timid to set themselves free from seeds, we would lose all of those vivid colours that the springtime breeds. If little chicks were all too shy
What eery sound is that? Wild mating cries of cats; distorted steel guitars or some strange ray from mars in a 50’s drive-in movie. It sends shivers right through me.
Just think, without their blissful light how dark this restless night would be.
Remember the Spring when the Earth is cold; remember the sun’s gentle kiss of gold; remember the grass and the flowers that grow when the world is all hidden with ice and snow;
Within love’s land, though I may be a stranger and cannot tell what sorrows, there, may hide for you, my love, I’d put my heart in danger; for you such risk is surely justified.
1st Verse: Politics are parlour tricks; the fight has already been fixed; no matter who the people choose, the rich will win; the poor will lose. They only make a mockery
Oh, joyous love, come unto me; come fill my heart with pipes and timbrels; the soaring notes of ecstasy; the clash and crash of passions cymbals. Come fill me with fathoms of gold.
No high walled garden can compare with wild spring blooms spread everywhere; no bird in a cage ever sings sweetly as those that stretch their wings; no man made lamp e’er shined as bright
The mole comes up to see the sun and I, I am a lot like he. I’ve lived a life in gloom but none can bear the darkness constantly. Hearts must have joy as lungs need air;
Now my love has put down its roots and can’t be shook by wind or storm; bright are its blossoms; sweet, its fruits touched by loves sunlight, gold and warm
No picture can capture the grandeur of Nature; no canvas is vast as her broad open skies; her clouds, like a snow capped mountain in stature her sun, like a blue god’s bright golden eye
After the dance, we both lie down together and share the ecstasy of love inside. After the dance of life, lie down forever in that ecstasy upon the other side.
Tomorrow is for fools; Today the spring is here; the sun’s a glistering jewel in the heavens bright and clear; there’s laughter on the breeze and blossoms fill the bough;
Into the hearts of men, I go and there, the seeds of roses, sow; the brightest blooms that ever grew, of glittering and golden hue. Upon my flute I play an air
The sun is her orange and her yellow; her blue, the seas below and skies above; her green, the leafy trees and grassy meadows; her red, the bright red rose which blooms for love
An Infant’s heart begins to beat like a distant booming drum; coming nearer and growing louder, the closer it becomes. And it leads a carnival parade
I praise the joyful litany of things that are so wonderful about the Spring; her sun, a golden kiss on bluer skies; her gentle breeze, April’s contented sighs;
Your love shields me from all of sorrows darts so none, however sharp, can pierce my heart. I feel blessed, no matter with what I’m cursed and rich, no matter how empty my purse;
I am just a Robo-Hobo riding in a space boxcar; over lazer light rails I go, travelling across the stars. Other folks may live under domes but I’ve got no fixed address;
a smile spreading across the mothers face. Mankind had tried to put Nature in fetters but, perhaps, this species would do better; choose love, respect and kindness as its path.
Running through a summers day, I chased a butterfly of blue and gold but it would always fly away; would never stay still long enough to hold. That butterfly has long since gone
No wonder trees are all so slim; the way they bend and stretch their limbs; doing Treerobics all day long to keep them healthy, fit and strong.
Often the door to my Heaven opens; sometimes in the heart of a rose;
Honey bees all jive in their be-bop hive; all the little bugs do the jitterbug. The daffodils grow like trumpets that blow; roses root-toot-toot in their red zoot suits.
Two little birds dance far above, performing their beautiful ballet of love; Rogers and Astaire on the stage of the air; they whirl and they glide, always side by side.
A love for Nature’s never unrequited. Into Earth’s spreading arms, we’re all invited. To each of us, the sunset’s kiss, she blows; for all the golden bloom of sunrise grows;
Silver April raindrops shower; over everything they pour; touching all with Midas power; polishing the whole world’s floor; transforming the grey and grimmer
Long beaked sea-birds seek out little morsels on the shore. Anything they eke out is a thing they’re thankful for. Eagerly sanderlings scurry as the waves retreat;
Distant voices are blurred; noises instead of words; arguments become storms; gentle laughter like birds; angry mobs bray and roar; crowds are waves on the shore but though you hear far less
My memory was given to adorn with twinkling silver nights and golden dawns; bright skies of woad and eve’s of indigo; green leaves and grass and every bloom that grows;
The seed cannot contain the flower once it has heard the voice of Spring, nor has the cocoon any power to hold back the butterflies wings; the change of season has begun
Just wee Tom Thumb am I; lost in the towering grass; leaning upon the trunk of every daffodil I pass. My life span may be days; my heart beat a bee’s wing but I’m honoured to gaze
Albino children dance in the moonlight; the sun’s far too bright but the stars just right for their complexion, pale and the sweet nightingale sings its enchanting song
The rolling, golden bowling ball of sun shatters all the tall skittles of night; driving blackness back to oblivion with its amazing blades of blazing light.
The axis of the earth rotates towards the sun; cold winters at an end; bold spring has just begun; a time to venture forth; for life to stretch its legs;
Chilly winter days are past. The happy spring is here at last. The sun that hid its head away is spreading all its golden rays. The birds are singing merrily in every branch of every tree
Blooms are brooms to sweep winter away; brushes to paint the world bright and gay; fairy wands that cast colourful spells; Nature’s symphony of ringing bells;
Regally, like a queen, the beautiful baleen waves her tail up and down and makes a mellow cello sound. While, like in a ballet, her calf, around her, plays; he glides between her fins,
Its bill is like two dry sticks rubbed together and, like the blazing fire that they start are the amazing crossbills crimson feathers. That's why it starts a fire in my heart.
Blackbird, all the notes you use weave whirling, twirling curlicues; notes like little birds that fly through ear and heart like air and sky. On a blackboard, in bright chalks,
Magical galaxies, towering over us; sprinkling twinkling showers all over us; sparkling starbursts and spirals and rings; fabulous nebulas; fairy tale things.
The wings of the blue morpho have no patterns; they look just like blue lingerie of satin. The swallowtail’s pretty wings always look just like crayon in a colouring book.
Bluebells blooming; life resuming after winter harsh and cold; roses spraying sweet perfume and daffodils spreading their gold. Poppies popping up, no stopping Springtime once it has begun
Aurora Borealis awe-inspiring sight; when God takes out her paintbrush, splashing skies with coloured light; like ancient spirits dancing; or vast silk veils of green and red,
It is a peaceful day. The Earth tranquilly lays beneath the sky’s broad gaze and happy birds flit about, flap and play. A gentle, quiet breeze strokes through the willow trees
A little thing can tip the scales; lighten the heart so joy prevails, like a flake of snow or a gentle kiss, small things containing worlds of bliss.
Smile; make your frown a grin. Smile; let some sunshine in. Smile; let me see you beam. Smile; it makes your eyes gleam. Smile; it’s good for your health. Smile; just enjoy yourself.
Bigger. Stronger. Leaner. Meaner. Faster. Fiercer. Tiger. Roar! ------------------------ I am tiger. I am power and, when I grrr or I glower, craven creatures run and cower
First my toes turn into talons, then my mouth becomes a beak, feathers grow upon my fingers; songs replace the words I speak. Then I spread my wings out widely
A spindly splodge of ink god spilt, you make up for your looks with grace; strutting upon the air with stilts; drifting past at a ghostly pace. Oh daddy long legs, you’re so queer
Language can alter consciousness; letters like L.S.D.; stories can take you on a trip beyond reality. Try prose instead of Prozac; lines of verse and not Cocaine;
Christmas morning; Sun is rising in blue skies of Bethlehem. Song birds serenade the new born like a choir of cherubim. Christmas morning; day is dawning; celebrate the infant king;
Christmas lily, as white as the snow and shaped like a trumpet an angel would blow; you announce to us all that the Christmas is here and bring into our hearts the gift of good cheer
A Christmas tree, you’ve planted in my heart; a love both eternal and evergreen with silver bells of laughter and red ribbons of your smiles; soft glowing candles of joyful memories;
I can’t wait till I spy that ship of gold; with sunray rigging and full sails of light
Little Robin with your heart so big, chirping happily upon a twig; when I hear your jolly carolling, silver bells inside me start to ring. Little Holly leaves that prickle us;
Nature’s not just a pretty face, you know; there’s intellect in everything that grows. Some might even say that it looks designed but, in Nature’s form, I see Nature’s mind.
A rubbing of the sun appears in gold and deep etched clouds in blue Crayola sky and myself, as I looked at six years old, with bright, new copper pennies for my eyes.
Everywhere you’ll hear lovebirds sing and every day will be like the spring.
I have a golden smile for every sunbeam; a gentle kiss for every pretty flower that blooms; a silver tear of joy for every tiny raindrop and, for the big bass drum of thunder, a heart that booms.
I see a gentle mother within everything I see; the way the trees embrace the birds within their boughs and sunlit clouds look like a mother who is smiling tenderly
Oh, great Muse of Autumn fire; gold and crimson, blazing bright, who could help but be inspired by such an amazing sight but there’s no true way to capture butterflies in black and white;
Autumn born, full moon faced and naked as a tree, I grew to love each new Autumn as if it were born from me; love every leaf that bowed to earth, soft as an infant’s tread;
Oh, great magic patchwork carpet, woven from star-like leaves of gold, on tortoise wings of time you take me far from white Winters world of cold to the exotic realms of Summer
Blaze on, Summer bright; surround my heart in rays of light; armour of gold that glistens on long after August days have gone and press your flowers deep in me; heap up sweet scented memories
August, most august; Summer's sweet parting kiss, like those sights and sounds of Heaven fallen angels sorely miss. Winter’s wall shall come between us but I take comfort in this;
Little, black, fluttering, pipistrelle bat; circling my ceiling like a surreal windmill sail; your tattered, leather wings unfolded like a flashers mac
Outside, I hear the loud percussion of rain falling in rank and file; splashing, clattering; grey clouds gushing on terracotta pots and tiles. Shooting shining silver quivers,
Breath of love, blow hard upon the sail of this, my little heart shaped sailing boat and stormy seas and thunder shan’t prevail. Though waves juggle her, she shall stay afloat.
Inspiring, like spires and arches of churches, the little chicks chirping up high on their perches in branches of beeches and larches and birches
A poem worthy of our love is a thing beyond the power of words. A poem is too small a thing; our love requires a choir of birds. Our love should have a hurricane with rose petals to strew,
Alone, in the eyes of man, I was but I never felt alone; not in the warm embrace of summer; far away from the cold hearted crowds; not with the breath of her breeze in my hair;
Beauty’s gonna get ya with a left hook and a right; a hundred bucks I bet ya, you’ll be seeing stars tonight. Beauty is a boxer; red roses are boxing gloves.
A fluttering of hearts, a shimmering of memories and a miracle of hopes; a carnival of dreams; a summertime of hugs and a fairy tale of kisses; a jubilee of smiles; a rhapsody of rainbows
Now is the time when red roses bloom and the song of suckling swallows fills the air. Now, the world is fertile, painted and perfumed and wearing eglantine in tangled hair.
Sunset upon snow; an infant’s eye grows sleepy. With laughter it will awake. Snowflakes, snowflakes, snow flakes falling. Winter gives me a book of Haiku. Present wrapped in white
Far warmer than fur garments is that fuzzy glow I feel; that happiness that hugs my heart when I see baby seals. My heart falls into their warm eyes; as bright as stars in the North Pole
Come tread upon the snow with me; we’ve travelling to do. It looks so pretty and so pure and darling so do you but Winters not worth anything unless we’re having fun.
I know three comely misses named April, May and June; with tulips, they blow kisses; with blackbirds, whistle tunes. And over hills and vales, each wears a long, green velvet gown;
The Forgiving Springtime When the infant sheds white cloak of death; when newborn smile stretches across the Earth, she has no memory of the cold winter; of the harshly arguing winds;
Dark flames eat butterfly wings, tear through the handiwork of time; ugly hearts hate beautiful things, they wallow in their age of grime. One eyed men hunt the unicorn.
Young children run and laugh and scream towards the fireworks display; teenagers drift with inward dreams, fireworks filled their hearts today; parents watch kids with starry eyes,
Inspired by Steve Button I thought I'd write a quick automatic poem. Don't know if it's any good. It's kind of Nursery Rhymey.

Curling clouds, of permanent waves, pinned back, her bright eye is pressed against the eye piece; in love with the light that freckles the black, like the freckles constellated on her face.

This was meant to be a song but I couldn't think of another verse/chorus so I'm submitting it as a poem.
Based on "To the virgins, to make much of time" by Robert Herrick.
Round about the roundabout and arcing over our car, as we drove home from the clinic, through the brainwashing tumbledrum, the constant stutter and tutting of rain, a rainbow rose above;
In terrorizing visions, I see virions of greed; icosahedral capsids vaster than cathedral domes and, wherever they hover, poverty erupts and bleeds
Thinking about this week’s IP, it occurred to me that no one needs to be transported by music more than those who are confined to a prison of some kind.
What name pours forth instinctively when we are born again; borne into the arms of love; into a new eternity; tiny, helpless, wide-eyed and clinging? EM-MA! The mother of all words of love.
Birthday candles blazing in a circle, like the family and friends gathered around you, like the silver quiver of a hunter’s moon. Blow them out and then make your secret wish,
Stonechat; Nature’s Demosthenes, your beauty pleads her case with ease, your bright black coat and russet breast says all that needs to be expressed. When it seems as if men cannot
My heart must be a mirror of the earth, For when I see a rose one grows inside And gazing round at springtime’s spreading birth My heart bursts with broad fields and steep hillsides.
I see a fingerprint of god against the dusty plains. I see an X-ray showing me both death and glowing life. I see bars, but underneath a thing that won’t be caged.
I woke upon some hunter’s wall and could not feel my limbs at all; my body gone, in fear, I screamed but, thank the stars, it was a dream. Rejoicing; in my life, I thrilled;
The child’s eyes widen, behind binocular lenses, watching as featherless hatchlings grasp for air with tiny talons; tender mums and fathers feeding crop milk to their hungry young

Marduk, who held a paper sun and paper world within your hands; maker of kings; lord of the lies. The fear of you is fading. All those who knelt at your feet now tear you down
Peace and the nightingale sing in harmony with each other, reminding me of infancy and the cooing of my mother. Thank goodness; like memories of my loved ones that live on,

We met infront of Marx’s tomb; watched the October setting sun; gazed up as stars rose from the gloom. I chose a star, said “You’re that one”. And then we kissed and raised a fist

Making all things shine; that is your noble art. ‘twas you who poured the gold into each atom of my heart. Yours was the kiss that kindled this bright candle in my breast,
Autumn Vow When the oestrogen of green has gone, I’ll still love you as I did in spring; When the wind turns harsh and night grows long; While the fires of anthocyanin

To the brightest suns of Summer, add the brightest stars and moons and the oceans gentlest murmur and the skylarks sweetest tune and all miracles together that this world was ever shown
Our bodies stood upon this earth; our hearts upon the moon; our cares in cold December; our lips in brightest June. There was no world around us, no skies of evening hue;
Kiss me under heaven and let the stars see light. Teach angels to envy; let them gaze on greater heights. Your love makes a blasphemer of my heart with each sweet kiss;
You’ve come too late, my love, to shine; an antique pearl in an age of swine. Man’s lost all love for things divine. You are the sun but men are blind.
A fox and vixen, I have seen, make love amidst the evergreens. Two brazen flames that brightly glowed from wick of shadow and wax of snow. And honeybees, or so I’m told,
First, bright flaxen lashes, then the opened eye of sun, like loud cymbal crashes, flashes o’er the horizon. Bright as inspiration, it touches blank winter snow, then out pours creation;
An army marches in the snow; each man carries a sword of sound but, with that sound, they strike a blow that can knock titans to the ground. Bound by meaning, they forward go
On December 31st and at the midnight hour; fireworks go boom and burst into a big, bright shower. When Big Ben begins to chime, to let everyone know the time,

Here grows a rose that will not die, not in the harshest winter snows nor deserts cracked, barren and dry. Through endless night, it still would glow. It is the love between you and I.

I send my love a Sunflower for the brightness her love brings; and daffodils and blue bells for the bells her bright love rings; the reddest of all roses for the passion her love starts
Wherever there is love, there will be hope; a fountain of hope that pours within our hearts and, bound together, we are bound to cope; each person, moved by love, to play their part.
When love lets me speak again then perhaps I may sing love songs; when my heart comes home again from higher realms; when its golden wings grow tired of circling love’s bright sun
What is it that seduces men to war? Why choose the hail and thunder to adore? Why not the snow white dove or crimson rose? Why can’t man be content with such as those?

Let me cheer for you and sing your praise for the many wondrous things you’ve done. Let me pour upon you golden rays for being my constant rising sun.
Into a masterpiece, I walked for miles; put my hand deep and brushed against the brushstrokes; closed my eyes and felt the colours; a silken soft and fragrant rainbow;

Life long, unto life, I am betrothed; contented with this flesh in which I’m clothed; wearing this golden ring of days with pride; happily sleeping by the Springtime’s side.
Enter wanton Summer sun; Winter’s buttons all undone. Enter the exotic queen; luscious luxury of green and gem hued; pearl dewed satin petals; lakes like polished, precious metals
Love’s sleeping giant has awoken. I hear its thunderous feet within my heart; feel enormous hands with grip that can’t be broken and power to raise me up or tear me apart.
Tonight I was awoken by a funny sort of feeling and, opening my eyes, I saw my heart high overhead. Like a helium balloon, it bobbed about upon the ceiling
Every rose is a colossus, towering overhead. Every rose is like a lighthouse with an eye of blazing red. Every petal more impressive than all the pyramids and tombs

She asked me for roses; I gave her rose hips and said, “Here are roses as red as your lips with perfume more sweeter than any you’ll smell in expensive bottles brewed up by Chanel”.
Sweet, gentle spirit of the Summer breeze who whispers words of love in leaves of trees. It’s joy to feel the soft touch of your hand; your cooling breath, like being gently fanned.
The booming thunder like a starting gun, a torrent pours, a shining marathon; muscular clouds hurl javelins that flash whilst whistling winds begin a wrestling match.
Let the lines grow deep upon our love and let the hair of our friendship turn grey, for the love that grows wiser is a love forever strong;
Riding on the rock and roll bus that shakes and rolls and rattles us; pastoral symphonies flash past. Driver, why must we go so fast? Too fast to see the countryside;
She is beaming out a gleaming signal to anyone at all whose heart will hear, in wavelengths of golden solar splendour which she hopes you are receiving loud and clear.
Sad eyes see willows weeping but they never weep to me. A lovely, long haired maiden is the tree I always see or a tall, melting green candle that sustains the flame of life

The last words of the Autumn, at the dying of the year, are the oratory of beauty; ennobling to hear. With the sighing of the Autumn wind and tongues of blazing leaves,
