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

Words in my Head

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

These words which jump into my head
from where I do not know
I want to share them with you all
as the verses grow

I can’t think where they come from
it’s a mystery to me
I just thought I would write then down
so all of you can see.

LOVE

Listen to poem:
I am a girl of what could be -

my love for ever in front of me.

I cannot catch it or ask it to tea.

It will for ever elude me.


But I have a love of a different sort.

It's not the make-believe I thought.

This is my man who lives with me.

Love has truly come to tea.

The Taksim Military Barracks

Listen to poem:
Behind a fence, the barracks,
the grim barracks,
but the barracks are no more.
Their domes were like an onion,
stealing the great show.

Julie went to see them in 1939,
but much after, no, soon after,
grim barracks were no more...
The onion domes don't mystify:
there's only mist to show.

The Miller's Daughter

Listen to poem:
The lighting, it was over-bright
and fraught was the miller's daughter.
It gave the miller man a fright.
The lighting, it was over-bright,
and damaged - quite an oversight.
              That is when the killer caught her! 
The lighting, it was over-bright
and fraught was the miller's daughter.

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.

Rhymes Unbidden

Listen to poem:
By Robert (Bob) Moore

I wonder where these poems have been
hiding in my head unseen
‘til Billy Briggs started me on rhyme
and now it’s there, all of the time

I think of rhymes day after day
sometimes I wish they’d go away
guess I’m stuck ‘til there all done
must admit, it has been fun

Embers of Time

Listen to poem:
           Embers of Time


Sweet flickering embers of time
rekindling  morsels of flame
held in the  shivering embrace
of a love that no loving could tame.

The heat and the light slowly blur
the embers of time’s discontent
doused by the salt of lost tears
in shadows flame dancing lament.

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

Love without hope

Listen to poem:
Trenches filled with a nations youth and homes with broken dreams 
No golden years are guaranteed when the queen  calls your name
No wedding days and two up two downs and gardens neat and  clean
Just stolen lives an empty chair and a letter from the queen

I Dreamt of a Treaty with Trieste

Listen to poem:
I dreamt of a treaty with Trieste,
but it was to get my mind off something else -
the Brexit.

In the treaty all would be good,
and I would have hols in Trieste
twice a year.

Do I take my bucket there and spade?
Do they have sand in
the city of Trieste?

Actually, I've just fallen in the sand.
Brexit's come to pass
and Trieste's wishful thinking.

Kite Flying

Listen to poem:
Take the freedom of fields
And the spirit of youth
Share it - let go of your cares
Fly your kite with a passion
and ignore the dull fashion
to stay indoors – Get some fresh air

Take hold of the reins
Make freedom your aim
Gape in awe as it sails in the breeze
Allow a smile to your face
And give daydreams some space
Just watch out for lightning and trees!

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.

Refrain On The 6th

Listen to poem:
A Tiny Sphere Our earth, our world, though just a tiny sphere, you shine most fine among the rest, defined with life of varied forms that are the only ones we know of now. In maze of cosmic dust how rich you are... a tiny sphere...our mammoth world. Sandra M. Haight ~4th Place Contest: The Best Of Poetry 6 Sponsor: Nette Onclaud Judged: 06/06/2016

Sad dizain

Listen to poem:
Their wedding day was such a super day. 
Splicing of two hearts in eternity 
Heading to wedded bliss , spreading delight 
No uncertainty it's fraternity 
Love keeps  sanity for posterity
Memory's stole and taken you away 
Alzheimers  gone forever and a day
Remember her until your dying day  
Its a fresh hello each and every day 
they will fall in love again each new day.

Pussy Paean

Listen to poem:
What due is this, O feline fierce,
for what affront thus penalized
with calibrated nips that pierce
for my caress unauthorized?

'Twas you with brazen move unasked
who burnished coat upon my limb.
What dire affect iconoclast
did stir your feral feline whim?

The cat is oft like womankind
beyond man's feeble intellect,
a primal spirit state of mind,
requiring manners circumspect.

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
