Freeborn

FREEBORN

Now ‘cross the fields and woods bird songs ring out
Unbounded exultation to survive
Their voices each a freeborn joyous shout

‘I am still here, a presence, had you doubt?’ 
Through dark cold months to cling on then revive
Now ‘cross the fields and woods bird songs ring out

Each chant communicates to those about 
Imperative intent: continued strive
Their voices each a freeborn joyous shout

No gentle air to sooth a fractious pout
But gesture to persist and so to thrive
Now ‘cross the fields and woods bird songs ring out

 As sun ascends to reassure all doubt
 Lives then with procreation will contrive
Their voices each a freeborn joyous shout

The cyclic shape of life yet comes about
With each repeat we greet all creatures live
Now ‘cross the fields and woods bird songs ring out
Their voices each a freeborn joyous shout

I didn’t know you Geoffrey nor had I read or visited your poetry page, how I wish I had to just say how absolutely beautiful your poetry is and was, this last one about The Robin for me is so poignant as some believe when a person sees a robin it’s a relative come back to say hello. You will be missed a lot by your friends here, hope your having a marvellous time in your journey forth. Angie :)

You leave us with a last swan song that brilliantly expresses what a poetic talent you were dear Geoffrey. I am so thankful I can continue to visit your pages. My favorites of your poems were “Omens and Sonnet Pathetique“. And now this treasure. You will be greatly missed. Blessings and Aloha, Connie xxoo

A month has passed since I last visited you, Geoffrey, and now I know why you have not been here recently. You have gone to your rest. God bless you. I never knew you too well, but I appreciate the intelligence you showed in your writing.

"The cyclic shape of life yet comes about With each repeat we greet all creatures live"-- beautiful poetry, Geoffrey; masterfully composed! Enjoyed very much.

I enjoy reading any poem that has accompanying text with it, quite simply because I enjoy reading why a poet wrote what they did and their thinking behind the subject. Your villanelle is superb. I've yet to attempt this form but yours reads beautifully. ..and what a great title! I have to add that I've never seen a robin flying around in the snow looking for a spade handle to land on.. But that's another poem. :) Great work. Cheers - Gary

Geoffrey, the alternating lines that come together at the end go very nicely together to express your beautiful meaning here. Good luck in the villanelle contest.

I like this a lot, Geoffrey. I'm a big fan of the villanelle and write lots of them myself. This is the first work of yours I have read, and I am impressed.
