Many great Masters have taken flight
To America, leaving this Island of green...
Satisfying life's ambition to capture
The International scene.
America may offer citizenship
With a place in the main A stream
But after a short while 'home' is calling
When many great men return to the fold
Then referred to as 'Anglo-American'
As was ordained in days of old.
One such poet from an English town
Wystan Hugh Auden,20th Century
Anglo-American Poet of much renown.
In The Distance
Forty Word Poem.
Smoke from distant forest fires
And coastal seafret, obscure my view.
I cannot see you rushing towards me
As once you did when love was new...
I must wait until the air is clear
Hoping to see your radiance appear.
