Premium Member The Poignancy of Boyhood
There is a poignancy in boyhood...
The high voice, and ineptitude,
The yearning to be free of mother's strings;
The awkwardness of age fifteen, to wit
A boyish sullenness.

There are some things lost when manhood gained -
And mothers cry on thinking.

Premium Member Halloween Night
silhouette visage 
scare awake the silent dead
on Allhallows eve

weird sounds penetrate
wildly woods so dark and deep
making one cower

a cold eerie chill
overtakes a breathless evening
waking dead spirits

fears manifest great
sullenness apprehensions
scaring one to death

little children lurk 
the streets full of kindly houses
with fun faces that awe
