Eerie Calm


Eerie calm melts and diffuse
Words linger in misty evening
Smiles break in queer rings
Whispers grow intense
Like a swan’s cry
On the river at a pitch dark
Midsummer night
Shadows stir in haze
And atmosphere rings
With deep growing silence
As a hundred swans splash
On water fluttering their wings
Breaking waves in many circlets
Feelings grow in the rhythm of gentle ripples
Concentric circles round one point
Growing, breaking in an unending cycle.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
