CANVASS—2(blue) -revised

(Devoted to Mrs Catrina Heart a great poet of Phillipines)


I like blue sky

deep blue sea

your blue eyes

depth of which is unfathomable



I like the way the blue sky

sees its face in the sea

I fail to understand

wasn’t it your eyes on me?



I like the delft-blue porcelain

glazed with oxide of tin

that carried along

three

dynasty of Italy,

France and Spain



but I never liked

the blue-blood royals

whose uncontrolled passion,

greed

have destroyed

village after village

in the name of making them loyal

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —

For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
