Ghazal To Pera Belle


love is now torn paper, thin, sea-blue and missing
never ask haunting hazel eyes why this heart longs

life has destroyed us while spreading-skies thinned letters
limping birds bleed loneliness onto sheet music

now razors scratch my dreams into this ruined wall
how could i know this much disappointment, now hushed

vague poems are my rubies, these alms won me grace
my jumbled days stammer, though their spinning brings change

now my skin is an unryhmed verse without your hands
never ask haunting hazel eyes why this heart blazes

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.
