Re: A widows Woes.

This is a majestic poem. It squarely faces the hard hard truth of widowhood -- the emptiness, the sorrow, the endless pain. I have the feeling that you are the son -- or perhaps writing from a close perspectve. It is a sad situation. What grabs me is that this poem is not a plea for sympathy; it as...

Re: OLD AGE BRINGS NEITHER WISDOM NOR CLARITY

Your final line says it all Thank you, poeticpiers reborn, for your positive comment: I have to admit that that last line really worked.... but at least I can't take conscious credit for it . It just flew out of Somewhere -- to my wonder and amazement. I appreciate very much your kindness and gener...

IF BE YOUR WILL TO WIN THE GAME




If be your will to win the game,
Walk bold beyond taut rules —
Go There, where secret strategy
The Ones most schools call fools.

No game is life — tho’ like — some say —
Goal both to all Opponents fool:
Academy — yields — empty-hand —
Reality — wields — Tool.

Re: OLD AGE BRINGS NEITHER WISDOM NOR CLARITY

Dear HEINZS -- Sorry this not in chronological order... Still trying to get used to the form of the 'forum.' I'm not a natural wiz when it comes to computers. Appreciate your comments and warm smileys. About the style: I understand. The trouble with me -- or ONE of the troubles with me -- in any ar...

OLD AGE BRINGS NEITHER WISDOM NOR CLARITY

Old age brings neither wisdom nor clarity Of reasons For. It only adds to the Confusion manifest since all Thens. A Slow killer Of — it is. No remedy Can ease the pain nor make for again. To see Oneself disintegrate is all right. What Choice is there — unless you can die — tho’ shut The windows of ...

THIS IS THE TIME OF NIGHT




This is the time of night
When I think about the day
It’s been and what I did

To shed some little light
On someone’s worrisome way —
So to help him walk amid

This darkness... nothing bright —
Just a candle’s breath to say
Something — anything — good...

A Mighty Ship She Is





A mighty ship she is,
So follows she her course —
No matter captain says,
Give way she to the force

Of wind — and of ocean,
Of sky and storm and moon —
We know not where she’ll dock —
But know ‘twill be too soon.

It's Time To Settle Down

It’s time to settle down. The clock has rung its bell. The season’s getting cold — And I am growing old. The road just goes around — But all is just as well. The story must be told — Again — again to tell — The world is growing old: It’s time to settle down. ____________________ Firestone Feinberg ...
