Richard Anders Poems
Arise pale moon and be my guide I journey where Valkyries ride across the stars in silver streams into the valley of endless dreams
God and Eddie
When I was still a young man I heard God call my name 'Eddie Stark, my fine young man I`m going to give you fame'
I Wish I Were A Fish
I wish I wish I were a fish a salmon or an eel I`d swim across the Ocean blue to see how it would feel.
The Sands of Time
The sands of time ran out for me about a year ago I hung around on Earth a while not sure of where to go.
the night was dark and dreary the rain was lashing down i was wet right through from hat to shoe and i`d lost my way to town
One day I sat upon a stone
One day I sat upon a stone and thought that I was all alone but sitting perched upon a log my eyes beheld a little frog
Shadows on the ceiling Shadows on the wall Shadows on the curtains Shadows over all.
Of hopes and dreams I`ve many to see the world at large to cross the Gobi Desert or camp by Lake Le Barge.
The Ballad of Jake McCool
The day was hot and dusty as Jake rode into town a mean look in his ice-blue eyes his dark hair hid a frown
On The Run
I hit the road five years ago I`m running from the law I shot a man in Abilene I beat him to the draw.
I wanted to live in the country away from the city I`d dwell I wanted to live in the country just me all alone by myself
Thought for to-day
Seize the hour seize the day for in the end we pass away don`t be sad cry if you must ashes to ashes and dust to dust
The Bo`suns Farewell
The polar night was clear and bright and icy through and through the wind was rough but we were tough and we all had a job to do
The ice the ice the crushing ice our ship is held in a freezing vice it`s fifty below N.W.of Nome and some of the crew are crying for home

Arise pale moon and be my guide
I journey where Valkyries ride
across the stars in silver streams
into the valley of endless dreams
look not for me in forest green
nor yet by the seas white crest
the ice queen in her frosty gown
has locked me to her breast
silver stars shine in her hair
electric blue her gaze
in palaces of driven snow
she spends her timeless days
no mortal arms shall hold her
no mortal lips shall lie
but I shall rest upon her breast
and time will pass me by.
