Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Writers Of Truth Serve


art like truth secret wears
many names has many voices
names times ages shifts

changes clothes pseudonyms

art must have many names
many voices to survive to thrive
in the face of sly oppressions

singer sing your soul songs
make hungry people happy sad
or exultant in your concerts

while we writers of words
must pay with our writ lives
our souls blood in our veins

we unseen voices of peace
fight sources feeding on wars
demons who sow waste lands

sing your songs in gift peace
siren joy we soul purchase
with our lives freely for thee

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
