ESL, ENL - New audio feature- Not a poem

Listen to poem:
I have a heavy accent,
You wont get audio from me.

I will probably use a female
TTS on-line engine,
Pitch set to max,
Make my computer sound hysterical
Now listen.

Summer Evenings

Listen to poem:
Summer evenings stroll on
With their melodies strong
And their playful wishes well-fed

Sunsets arrive in full glory
With a daring, keen story
Reluctant to cast us to bed

The skies blush and they croon
Kiss hello to the moon
and blossom in purple and red

Wee Willie Winkie

Listen to poem:
By Robert (Bob) Moore

Wee Willie Winkie running through the town
just had a shandy and a good lie down
Mary’s running after him cause she’s just had one too
now she’s up the duff, and she don’t know what to do
she has to marry Willie before the Fall
guess Wee Willies Winkie, wasn’t so wee at all.

Love Without Hope

Listen to poem:
                          
       My passion so vain remains unredeemed
             All in want of her delicate bliss. 
    Each night repainted on soft canvas dreams
             Then erased in subliminal mist.

Summer Sight

Listen to poem:
Summer Sight Contest
Sponsor: Nayda Ivette Negron


crack of dawn whispers
   willows soaring in the wind
      surges of the sun

fields of sheer romance
   eastern equinox blossoms
      summers scent lingers

grassland for my love
   sweet kisses for the billow
      emerald beauty

Panic Room

Listen to poem:
Inside, familiar voices murmur
Subtle threats of ridicule
Only now, they're slowly growing distant - suffocating
Locked inside our panic room
Alone once again
Treading riptides deep within
Inward, holding my breath for you
Only now, I'm slowly growing distant - suffocating
Numb inside our panic room

Hopeless Chemistry

Listen to poem:
Voices are telling me to stay awake.
Why can't I hear yours?

Choices,
the truth was something to escape
for just one good score.

You crossed the line
so the rush would last this time.
Searching for a sign
to help us feel alive.

We are hopeless chemistry.

Passing time with your notions of trust
as my will slowly crumbles to dust.

We are hopeless chemistry.

Walking Dead

Listen to poem:
Pale moonlight overhead
floods a bone dry riverbed
Lost and wounded, full of dread
while my thirst grows crimson red
cause this nightmare has only fed
the walking dead

I still hear those words you said
never give up, don't lose your head
but now it's harder to pretend
grace will save us in the end
cause this nightmare has only fed
the walking dead

No, this nightmare has only fed
the walking dead

Lost In You

Listen to poem:
I hear your voice overhead
As status lights turn to red
There's nothing I can do
Then with a brush of your skin
I feel the walls pressing in
There's nothing I can do

I'm lost in you
So lost in you

Your body heat makes me choke
My burning lungs fill with smoke
There's nothing I can do
Feeling my way towards the door
You pull me down to the floor
There's nothing I can do

I'm lost in you
So lost in you

2050

Listen to poem:
Feeding to the masses
their own flesh and bones
while sipping blood from glasses
collected by drones

Once prime resources decrease
automation makes survival
harder to justify poverty

Honest work for laymen
has long been obsolete
but secret combinations
still pay enough to eat

With so many mouths to feed
all the wealthy share is greed

Once prime resources decrease
automation makes survival
harder to justify poverty

Leviathan

Listen to poem:
Your eyes catch the light
in shades of memory
like blue ocean swells washing over me
while seagulls call soaring aimlessly
under a clear sky's splendid majesty

Yes I know
how tides flow
but all that you have
is shallow loyalty

Soon, fog will roll in
to claim these shores again
drifting through dry bones of leviathan
before you turn and flee hastily
from the surging gale's grim ferocity

Yes I know
how tides flow
but all that you have
is shallow loyalty

Life in Oz

Listen to poem:
by Robert (Bob) Moore © 2015

Over 50 years I’ve been out here
don’t like the heat, and snakes I fear
red back spiders, and the funnel web
if they bite you, you could be dead

Don’t like vegemite on my toast
get in the sun, and I would roast
down at the beach is not for me
don’t know what I’d do if a shark I’d see

like air conditioning, and a cup of tea
if it hot outside, inside I’ll be 
the mozzies they still bite me bad
guess in my heart, I’m a Gorton Lad.

Inspiration

Listen to poem:
I never knew I'd be in heaven
In the autumn of my years,
Or that I'd be immerged
In the brilliant art of words,
Or float above operatic notes,
Or view ballet through
My elated tears.

I never thought I'd meet
Inspiration face to face,
Or feel it rise within me
With a poet's surrendering grace.
I just know that I'm contented
As profound love keeps flowing
From my impassioned heart.
This is the gift that artists
Of this world yearn to impart.

Sailing on the Ocean

Listen to poem:
By Robert (Bob) Moore © 2015

We were sailing on the Ocean, my sisters, dad and me
Our sturdy ship was 12 foot long, but could stand the mighty sea
We were sailing past an Island, and native girls were there
They wore grass skirts, and lei’s, with flowers in their hair

Then someone called “13 in”, and I did a double take
We weren’t sailing on the Ocean, we were sailing Belle Vue Lake.
now we are back on dry land, and reality is here
I remember well, those days of yesteryear

New York Street Horse

Listen to poem:

Plunked down in chaos
from a gentler time,
blinkered from the traffic
he pulls the coach along.
Patient, in his harness bond
he tugs at hearts, with pathos-
as to his love of duty we respond. 
Amidst the screech of sirens
and the blasting horns,
he stands and dreams
of meadows in a nosebag.
 
Such rhythmic clicking of
 metal shoes on concrete,
full rolling of the carriage
wheels and he, confined,
down through the centuries
he thought he'd left behind.

My Wife the Quilter

Listen to poem:
by Robert (Bob) Moore © 2015

My wife she is a quilter, she quilts by day and night
cutting cloth and paper pieces, making sure they’re right
she likes to get me involved, “do these colours look OK”
I ask her, “what does she think”, cause she has the final say

I think they look real good she says, I nod, and I agree
she walks away all happy, more brownie points for me
we’ve been doing this for years, she thinks I have a good mind
never had the nerve to tell her, I am colour blind
