David Whalen Poems
Joy Of Spring
A Spring morning A warm Breeze doves cooing softly Pollen dusted trees
A Haunting Melody
It's not lyrics…but whispers That lie ‘neath the melody
The American Dream
Things I'd like to see A congressman with cojones A president with pride A government less regulated And no agendas to hide
A Pen Gone Dry
Barren fields…empty places Mind devoid of idea and rhyme Sterile imagination…featureless faces Webs in memories, frozen in time
A Blue Haiku (American Haiku)
The Most Boring Poem In The World
Do you put your cart before the horse Do you cast pearls before swine Do you let things run their course Are you just in the nick of time
Ode To The Color Blue
There’s ever so much more to blue Than just a color It’s as much an emotion As it is a hue
Are We Better Now Than Then (Stand Naked...
Better Now Than Then? (stand naked in front of a full length mirror and try not to giggle or gag) We were then:
I need a bottle of answers Or at least a flask A richness of remedy
A Few Seconds To Read
Heartbreak’s just another way of cryin’ Murder’s just another word for dyin’
When The Music Stops
When the music stops, the dance is done So listen and dance with all your heart and mind Always dance as if… t'would be your last one Live life to the fullest, let the dance and the music unwind
Ode To Spring
<center> Spring…you tug upon my heartstrings You’re akin to that last piece of cake The last sip of that delicious drink…
Lies About Tall Guys
Just seems like it’s that way to me Taller guys seem to get executive jobs Shorter guys work mostly as clerks
A Freudian Slip (Who Nose?)
I want to clear this matter up some way And at the same time make my point That love note I sent you the other day?
My View Of Fog
People often view fog in one way only
I personally don't see it that way, and...
the feeling it conjures is more than just lonely
It's totally different...
as night is to day
It depends on your age and your state of mind
to be able to see fog in a different light
To see it one way only is to be partially blind
