The Kraken

Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumber’d and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

—Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Poetry Friday: A Wonderful Man

Here is to a wonderful man
one who will be there when no one else can
A man who makes you laugh when you cry
and whose love will never die
 
A man like this can be hard to find
I’m so very blessed my mother found his kind
 
Here’s to my father who can make a rainy day shine
Here’s to my father
I’m so glad he’s mine
 
Happy Birthday with love

Three Lads in a Stable—10 More Days

Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 5.21.58 PM

 

Three lads sit in a stable and wait
One already knows his fate
the others still must sit and wait
 
And wait, must we, ten days still
to write our stories—gee, what a thrill!

Found Again

In honor of National Poetry day, I should like to recite a poem, entitled: Found (Sequel to poem, “Alone Again“)

She looked out the window in the clear autumn morning
The happiness she found came without warning
 
On her face was that smile
she’d lost for a while
 
On her chest sat a Cross
which she also had lost
 
Sitting beside her was her new husband
“The best man,” said she, “in all the land!”
 
He looked at her, her smile was bright
it outshone every light
 
He placed his arm around her shoulder
the day was growing colder
 
She laid her head upon his chest
At last her life had rest
 
“I am so blessed to have found you,”
she whispered to her love true
 
“As am I,” he said in reply
their love shown in their eyes
 
And as it is said so many times
 for it fills the rooms with joy and laughter
the couple went on for many more years
and lived happily ever after

The Edge of Night

Home is behind
The world ahead
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadow
To the edge of night
Until the stars are all alight
 
Mist and shadow
Cloud and shade
All shall fade
All shall fade
 
(The Return of the King—movie 2003)

Poetry Friday: Alone Again

Away in a room stands the girl alone
her hands worn in vain
She tries to put behind the thoughts
her eyes close in pain
 
There in the darkness she sees his face
she runs to meet his arms
But when at last she reaches the end
and opens wide her eyes
she meets an empty place
 
She falls to the floor
and sits with subtle tears falling down her cheek
there is no one there to greet her
Her love is never more
she is alone again
