Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Laurel Leaves Whisper Verse Wisdom


Laurel leaves
for poetic mad
vision verseifiers

mad enough eyes
wits to write realms
risk wisdom lines

for a mammon insane
world which cannot learn
to love eternal peace

which refuses
to conscience reason resolve
world problems
