THE LINEAGE FALLS… a poem

From whence doth despair

Find its rosy rouge

Placed upon thy fair countenance?

Was not your prince,

Adorned in fawning armor,

Enough for your virtue?

Aye, tis with deep vexation

Your king beckons

This besmirching wraith

Be cast off his princess

With its superciliousness visage.

Alas, the bite of one’s own blade

Did bring dishonor upon our house.

Verily, the lineage falls.

FACE OF DEATH… a poem

A small remnant of fear holds me

Yet in my dreams I can see the light

Solace stands within my grasp

But I close my eyes afraid to fight

###############

What shadow is this that accosts me

As I near the end of my days

Whirlwind memories cast their spells

And pierce me through the haze

###############

Bravely, or perhaps cautiously

I steady my faltering breath

Alas, the time is finally here

And I face the face of death

WEEKEND…a poem

The weekend is here

And it’s going to be full

With a garden to dig

And weeds to pull

My wife’s buying flowers

To plant, who knows where

Some over here

And more over there

I will borrow a tiller

To till up some rows

In hopes that my plantings

Will grow and grow

And as each day

Draws to a close

With a beer or some wine

In my hand, who knows

I’ll reflect on this time

God gives me on earth

And rejoice in the splendor

Of His beautiful works
