    Fruit of the Flower

    My father is a quiet man
    With sober, steady ways;
    For simile, a folded fan;
    His nights are like his days.
    My mother's life is puritan,
    No hint of cavalier,
    A pool so calm you're sure it can
    Have little depth to fear.

    And yet my father's eyes can boast
    How full his life has been;
    There haunts them yet the languid ghost
    Of some still sacred sin.

    And though my mother chants of God,
    And of the mystic river,
    I've seen a bit of checkered sod
    Set all her flesh aquiver.

    Why should he deem it pure mischance
    A son of his is fain
    To do a naked tribal dance
    Each time he hears the rain?

    Why should she think it devil's art
    That all my songs should be
    Of love and lovers, broken heart,
    And wild sweet agony?

    Who plants a seed begets a bud,
    Extract of that same root;
    Why marvel at the hectic blood
    That flushes this wild fruit? read more »

    ! A Wish

    I'd like to write - like grown-up poets do:
    with similes that span the universe,
    that sparkle, crackle, dazzle, woo the mind;
    and touch the heart with tender, swoony verse... read more »

    Very Like a Whale

    One thing that literature would be greatly the better for
    Would be a more restricted employment by the authors of simile and

    Autumn Friends

    If one could bridge the distance with a word,
    A journey would become a pilgrimage.

    My leaf has found a home upon your coat. read more »

    Seasonal Cycle - Chapter 06 - Spring

    "Oh, dear, with the just unfolded tender leaflets of Mango trees as his incisive arrows, and with shining strings of honeybees as his bowstring, the assailant named Vasanta came very nigh, to afflict the hearts of those that are fully engaged in affairs of lovemaking...

    "Oh, dear, in Vasanta, Spring, trees are with flowers and waters are with lotuses, hence the breezes are agreeably fragrant with the fragrance of those flowers, thereby the eventides are comfortable and even the daytimes are pleasant with those fragrant breezes, thereby the women are with concupiscence, thus everything is highly pleasing... read more »
