Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


How stoneblack is the park at will And cool is the twilight That glimmers across an uphill Yet teardrops roll, all decked in white. Your distant gaze flits, nearly bare Like gas lamp on dim coach Windblown by mist; here, everywhere Tells me not to approach. Later, amidst the evening rain When hours drift in repose The pounding lash of time contains A bench without a rose. My heart trickles as dew submits To a quiver that heaves, For your tattered rose now wilts While sullen face of moon retrieves. Oh, cloudbursts know my deep longing While taste of moments are gone; And souvenirs no longer bring The laughter and reason. Rose ( Allegory) Contest: Giorgio V *revised poem, 2012 by: nette onclaud

    Exquisite poem. Even the combined sounds of the consonants carry their own, soulful message. I consider this poem a unique composition! Bravo nette! :) G.

    A sad one but so beautiful. Is it , by chance, for the song lyrics contest? I saw some wonderful repeating lines. btw , I never heard back from you on that soupmail you sent me. I did recheck your last contest and saw what you were talking about. It's no big deal. It honestly did not register with me what you were saying as I read your rules. I hope to hear back from you on that other topic you wrote me about because I am wondering myself what to do!!
