A pain from a Dodo Leaf Poetess!

(I cried warm today
how repressed tears in a big dam.
I cried for you.

because you are not

in your Dodo's ~ Leaf place~

in tears i am

in blue i search

words to make you happy)

The Doc wants to reduce you to a simple leaf

of course he dont know about the importance

and the incredible spirit

built in the branches of an old tree!

Came on Doc, say at once

Am i will die?

NO, no, no
do you know who I Am
I am a Dodo Poetess

the last one, i am in extinction
numbers could do not come to me
statistics could not rules me

Better you fix me and quickly

before the ornithologist comes after you

I need time to find another Dodo

and do a lot of little Dodos too

Are you sad now Doc?

worried? Sick?

OH! Must be! !
i have something for you
A leaf print on the wind

for your hard heart

that beats in disorder
the delicacy of one Heather
that dissolves and sometimes burn

for stuffy nose and your lack of imagination
Some Dave in the Wood

or in the garden,2 times a day!

for remembering something lost years ago
walk just one time a week!

through the alleys At midnight hour
to cry and to sooth your soul

and remember.....
and for relief a pain that comes from a Dodo Leaf Poetess?

What you can do Doc?

Oh! Please!

be reasonable

A piece of paper and a pinch of black ink!

    there is SOMETHING about this poem which grabs me and keeps me interested. a combination of hints-of-understanding (on my part; but just hints) and fanciful, fantastic, dreamlike thoughts/expressions-in-words. now i sound fanciful, but i don't mean to sound that way. i'm not sure i WANT to understand this completely, IF it is posible. maybe it is not meant to be understood? maybe there are some secrets Poetheart knows or her friend knows (or both of them, which would be nice i think) . the part i think i followed best, though my interpretation is probably too literal (can one be too literal?) , is the part about the almost-extinct bird and his? quest to continue his species. [i just started to reread the poem; i guess the dodo is female] i laughed, a bit, at
    before the ornithologist comes after you..........and it is spelled correctly....ornithologist i mean.

    hey Morgan, i may get around to a message on this to you, but now i will at least give you the benefit of my little research into sooth:

    Did you mean: soothe
    Search Results

    noun: sooth
    truth.. i think you mean soothe............i have heard of for sooth, but i didn't know that sooth means truth! you and google have taught me something more (which) i probably don't ever need to know! :) bri
    thanks for sharing. smiles to you, poetess. (Report) Reply

    Our words live beyond the sunset of life. No our words are life beyond the sunset and a moonrise full of blue words. And rise before any sun's rays dare to challenge us. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
