Geoffrey Fafard Poems
The Angel of Tomorrow
The Angel of Tomorrow (The agonies of a little boy lost in the dark) The angel of tomorrows light Saw me shed a tear
An Evening Walk In Tuscany.
I walked from the big house to the villas In the cool of the late tuscan night I smelt wheat grass and orange blossom I heard owls and night birds
A Cold Night in Santa O'vaia.
A splintered moon rises Over the village of my ramblings And a cold mist follows, a chilly blanket Deep from the valley floor
On the edge of spring.
It is spring here on the edge of the wilderness and the night smells of Wild watermelon wine Winter has packed her sullen suitcase
The Spanish Giant
I saw today an apparition An inspiration or perhaps A ghost
The Witch of Windamere
(I heard a laugh a cry a wail... I did) Oh wind that whistles o'er water so fair
My Skype Mother ………
(with so many apologies to her) So there you are and here I am An ageing friend and an strange old man
A Storm Is Coming
An angry grey comes from the deepening storm Caressing the wings of petrels, gulls and a Lone storm riding albatross Greens curling twisting into grey corners
The Sad Dog.
Truth is the mother of sadness in a grieving dog He has gone or she has left.. its fact, truth
Flotsam and Jetsam.
It was hot today like any October tropic day And my dear old girl looked sad No wagging tail, No tooth and pink tongue smile
I remember Sydney Blue Sydney days Summer Sydney nights Filled with the lingering scent
Rolling Thunder Hindu Tears
There was a bomb I heard yesterday in New Delhi I thought it was thunder And at first just shrugged it off But some lives that were, are now gone
The Light In The Tigers Eyes
Sometime I cannot imagine the difference Between you and the blackest night You know those nights when only tigers stalk And lie waiting for the sound of your breath
God Of Barcelona.
God of Barcelona must be different Than the one I know His cathedral is huge with spires That spear towards todays blue sky

The Angel of Tomorrow
The Angel of Tomorrow (The agonies of a little boy lost in the dark)
The angel of tomorrows light
Saw me shed a tear
Why do you cry so in the dark?
What do you fear?
I will tell you what I worry about my friend
I replied as quietly I searched her face
What if this night won't go
What if the cool wind won't blow
What if my smile ceases to show
What if my friends don't know
What if I lose the way to go
What if the forest moon won't glow
What if it does not rain or snow
And what if this mountain stream won't flow
