Plagiarized - Nothing New

Along the pilgrimage path life purged and plundered   minds wept and wondered   weeds steadfastly grew   knowing not what we now knew   weary travelers groaned and grumbled   stepping cross wayward stones, tumbled   some had stumbled or even fell   seeking separate stories to tell     ink driven, dried up, cursed, then forgiven   bent in half, twisted, some curved   tales told, valient bold and self served   where whispers turned and ran   down along side stolen scripts   falling elegantly off loose lips   masses cheered the absurd   romantic scenes poetically heard     death defied and defiled   joyous celebration in a time   infectious an emancipation   liberated through rhyme lest relief    "To weep is to make less the depth of grief."

Your ability to weave free verse so cleverly with rhyme makes this write of yours exceptional. Touches of alliteration enhances it even more, but it's the messages you deliver that are astounding, Tim! I particularly like the 3rd stanza and its, "masses cheered the absurd..." and I smiled with where that led me. Inserting Shakespeare's line was the coup de grace to a plagiarizer, but the cherry atop a sundae! I hope to see this one climb.

Tim, this such a well written poem, it just reminded me of older times, and I found verse just rolls of the tongue, beautiful lines.
