In The Dark Shadows

In The Dark Shadows In the dark shadows of my own making, Like a cold, windless niche in a stone Cathedral, I walked beside a reflection of truth, A midnight soul, seeing a self - denying a self - And in that place I built a fortress retreat. Then, like some dart from a Promethean bow, I am struck... Sign in to see full entry.

Wisdom is the Compromise

Wisdom is the compromise between old age and youth - Folly and care - Wearing five layer’s in the cold of night Or just your underwear. And I must now choose or find the median, Wear purple at the alter Or plain pin-stripe at the ball. Such are choices ill devised Set out like traps to compromise.... Sign in to see full entry.

In Groves of Autumn Foliage

In Groves of Autumn Foliage In groves of Autumn foliage We sit, my dog and I, Watching the sun descend the heights, Tumbling into the willowy pool Like autumn foliage. Billows ring on the lilied lake; The surface breaks anew; I sigh, and my dog sighs, For although apart in mind We both know autumn’s... Sign in to see full entry.

I’m Out

I’m Out I’m out, standing before my God, Singing my very best song, Knowing finally that in his image I am truly created; For when God made the world, He took a day aside to create what the others would call folly, But He especially deemed well. Once I thought like the others, That the special world... Sign in to see full entry.

Personal Hero

Personal Hero I am my own personal hero And none other; For the models are not molded And the map was never started. So, to the thrill of my inner joy I annoint my head with my heart And know no other like myself in total. I am my own best actor, Hestitating for nothing but the lurers Who match and...

Simplicity

Simplicity I marvel at the flowing stream of people, Like the sea rolling and washing the shore with its plain motif, Exciting, yet so in place, like all things common to each other in nature. Simplicity itself, as natural as sun on breakers, We hold hands before for all the world to see. And what... Sign in to see full entry.

Come Wewoka

Come Wewoka Come Wewoka to my house And join to me your nestling heart. Take my gift of hominy And to the sparrows tell your tale. This be my troth - Forever in this city fair Cosawta gives as solid oak His sunrise-sunset pledge. Our bones together to the eagles go As our oath takes wing. So, come... Sign in to see full entry.

Where has your hate brought you?

Where has your hate brought you? Look around Take note! It’s Sarajevo - It’s Colorado and Oregon - It’s San Diego Burning bushes sacred to the straight and narrow Defiles in lost canyons, Where the sun never shines but to burn - In fire the world turns. Where has your hate brought you? To my door -... Sign in to see full entry.

Over the Counter Encounter

Over the Counter Encounter for Richard and Mike He was an over-the-counter encounter. His smile won my heart; His wink my soul And little did I know then What I know now. A coffee break, a dinner or two, Then to the blossom of my virgin sheets; This little guy, this blue-eyed soul Would be the one... Sign in to see full entry.

The Cultural Warriors We are culture's warriors Raising our voices through the land — Teaching with our measures And our hearts tied to our songs — Hymns which wrap the people With heaven's coverlet. We are the beacons for the century, To the youth and fiery angels Leading our pavilions Into the... Sign in to see full entry.
