black panther eyes eastick

(16th march 1971 / melbourne)

Four seasons in one day

Four seasons in one day
Rain and hail
Icy winter gale
Sunshine and warmth
Summer is on the horizon
Wind that blows
Air that moves leaves
On the trees

Four seasons in one day
Birth of a magus
Birth of a prince
The sky is full of clouds
That look like monsters
The roads are paved with ice
The sky is falling

The frogs outside the window
Ever faithful on this spring eve
While the men of the priestess
Roam and hunt
In search of themselves
Alone at night

As she is

    Ever faithful on this spring eve - If it weren't for this line, I would think that the poem ends with winter and a hope for the next season to be spring. Your poem evokes so many ideas and thoughts. (Report) Reply

    I love the way you describe the violence of the weather to evoke your own dark moments and personal upheaval. And on a lighter note - only in Melbourne do we really experience four seasons in one day! love, Allie xxxxxxxxxx (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
