Verses From The Remnants Of Broken Chains, 
Series Conclusion


Soft Cries  From The Remnants Of Broken Chains

I 've broken the deep silence that is profound
Slept amidst low cracklings of dying leaves
Lent my heart, sold it pennies on the pound
But, tis agony of your loss that grieves.

R.J. Lindley , Nov. 24th 1981
Quatrain


Mere Shreds From The Remnants Of Broken Chains

You begged to rest on this rocky ground
Lying just beneath that cold chamber door
Midnight pains hardly made a frantic sound
Yet pride lost whilst making pitiful score.

R.J. Lindley , Nov. 26th 1981
Quatrain


Voided From The Remnants Of Broken Chains

You limp on your bitter, frost-bitten foot
And I,  my dying soul cry all the more
There in that love-torn basket love was put
You left seeking gems on another shore.

R.J. Lindley , Nov. 27th 1981
Quatrain


Whispers From The Remnants Of Broken Chains

In fresh twilight, loving whispers float free
Life echoed young call to remember love
Hope rested under its usual shade tree
Massive cold raindrops fell from far above.

R.J. Lindley , Dec 2nd 1981
Quatrain


Waking  From The Remnants Of Broken Chains

There waits truth, far beyond the shoreless sea
Waves lashing and bright bold thunder crashing
In world, where life was a magical tree
With all the lakes and mighty fish splashing.

R.J. Lindley ,  Dec 9th 1981
Quatrain

Very beautiful writing. I get this, implicitly. I understand very well the abstract renderings of a real life you share constantly with all. Such a very gifted and true poet you are Lindley. I give merit where merit is truly due. You are one of the best, if not the best on this site and possibly out there in the real world of acknowledged published laureates. "There waits truth, far beyond the shoreless sea Waves lashing and bright bold thunder crashing In a world, where life was a magical tree With all the lakes and mighty fish splashing." R.J. Lindley , Dec 9th 1981 Quatrain
