My best Alexandrine,
Six syllables per line,
That I'll polish till they shine.

Something different for Fritz,

Never let them come destroy!
Show the Welsh pride, lovely boy!

This is the number I do want to reach;
Maybe soon Trump they will impeach;
Makes us nervous;
Never joined service;
Lesson to politicians we should teach.

Premium Member SPRING DANCE

chlorophyll greenery, Spring’s
creamery daffodils chock-full of light.
bees alight; honey wings.

violette clematis rife —
the ribbon wraps ‘round my neighbor’s mailbox.
her preserve rocks wildlife.

the southern cottonwood tree
sheds seeds of tumbleweed-like fluff, blowing
in warm wind; swing drifts free.

As do I the petulant petunias someone planted
I neither bless nor bow to any bouquet
Nor any overused flowery cliché

Darkness
 

When you go walking alone in the dark
Sometimes you can feel your heart start beating fast
As your breathing heavy sometimes you run
When you feel like somethings following you,
And with all the sounds you hear,
You...

Lacked in notion by the unspoken magna cum laude

What a delight!
I cant get you out of my sight!
You never want to fight

As long as we are pals
I'll never make any fouls
You blow me away like the owls...

When?
When?

When will peaceful ways be found?
When will God’s good faith shine down?
When will men erase hate’s frown?

Peaceful men embrace loves’ ground.
Faithful men let God surround.
Respect for all; please, come ‘round.

I'm Still Love
I won't forget who I am,
though who I am may be forgotten,
children gone,
no more home,
I'm still love.

Will always endeavor to remain,
no matter all that's been taken,
Though on my own,
I'm not alone,
I'm still love.

I may fail...

And it is making my all tranquil thoughts never feeling a great pain

Autumn
The bright green leaves are turning,
the forests look like burning;
cold weather is returning.

The days are growing shorter,
we're in the third year quarter;
the squirrel becomes a hoarder.

The stags in woods are clashing,
after the does they're dashing,
with...

Mom’s words cut like a knife, honed razor sharp
Which saddened my new wife
Mom now, after years of strife
Says I married up in life!
