A Poet Beside Me


Dedicated to the Men of the 7/17 RUTHLESSRIDERS


Soaring over the jungle just over the trees

just a man in the seat beside me.

A poet in motion shooting thought the trees

no worries he would ever show not even to me.

what was his thoughts?

this scout and a brother to me.

We were soldiers fighting the VC.

Friends have fallen but never to leave,

in memory they stay with me.

The war was fought and heroes we'll be.

Now Writers, Preacher, Teacher, Lawyers, Doctors

and poets you'll see, my friends and Brothers

who are lifetime Friends and Hero's to me.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
