Come Play With Me


And there amidst the leafy green
Emblazoned
on a clear blue sky, a face
Of questions
smiles down..
Why don't you come
and join me?
For here in leafy bough
& light
I laugh away all care
Whilst others trudge
& toil below
In tears & sweat
& strife…
But there you gaze
And here I laugh
Your pensive eyes so wistful..
A hindrance
Is your broken limb
Though care I not
You're earth-bound..
You wander off
I mock & taunt
To draw you to my eyrie..
Your backward glance
Reproachfully
Stills
the lofty tirade.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem about a boy I met when I was a child. I wanted him to climb into the tree I was in..I thought he was being a baby by not climbing up to join me... but he couldn't because he had a plaster cast on his arm!

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
