Best Daver Austin Poems

He spoke so softly, so lovingly,
Words that caught a summer morning’s breeze
And they flew about the sleepy town
Gathering aroma, color and body
From the various flowers
And from the various trees

Oh there were garden flowers and wild flowers
Oh yes, but there were unruly green weeds.
There grew the sturdy oak, the weeping willow,
But there were sick trees with rotting fruit had
       lately gone to seed

Well, the caring breeze swept right along,
But was cruelly changed by negative flow,
And words of honey began to sour
In blazing sun and rooster crow

Thus was born a tale old as Babel,
A semantic puzzle don’t you see
All aint sweetness, loving, lightsome.
Careless mouths don’t blend together
Through human fault and fickle weather

Dave Austin

    Words to spoil a relationship, carelessly touted bring the winds of change. Nice one Dave. Thanks for visiting my waltz. Janet
