Chester Maynes


Another Day And Night


Bridges to love and miles to grab
This ailing absence in a distant sob
Falling fast as a swaying dove
Echoes more hurt of a soul been robbed

Drifted from the madness crowd
Solitude and sober kill the proud
Some forlorn acres have me doubt
Serenity dies to every bite

Life for one in a home divine
Hope incarnates a blossoming vine
I seize the sky like a flying kite
Another day and night is mine

    It looks like the main character of the poem is away from someone, o something, but why? Or what is the circumtance? We do not know. The poem does not state this in my humble reading of it.

    The rhyme sheme is irregular in this piece which spoils the smoothness of some ending in some lines, but this is not that bad; rhyming perfect is not easy since rhyme often interferes with meaning and with purpose on diciton and subject matter.

    By the way, I have a book out called 'Smply My MInd.' If you like a copy, go to Amazon. com and type Luis Estable and you will see.

    The best to you now and ever! (Report) Reply
