Lora Colon

Freshman - 1,865 Points (26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)


I remember the song that you used to sing
When you said that you were my lord;
You shined like a star about to burn out,
You held me captive with every word

Whenever you called, I would come to you,
Your desire became my command;
Like the mare, I was wild and running free,
And you taught me to feed from your hand

You always knew the right thing to say,
The moon would disrobe to your song;
Then, like clouds the wind had torn apart,
Like the summer and the snow, you were gone

And the mare runs wild and free on the land,
She's enjoying the sweet grass again;
She stood on your heart to touch the sky,
Free of the whip..... free of the rein....
Free of the sword.....
When you were her lord

    Haven't read a poem of yours I don't like
    Tell me why did you raise this fool up so high?
    His arrogance sticks in my side like a pike...
    Your heart's words soar beyond even the sky. (Report) Reply

    I am not too sure whether I rightly understood what the poet had wanted to convey, but having read it, I felt amazed and gave it a 10.
    'Free of the whip..... free of the rein....
    Free of the sword.....
    When you were her lord'
    This speaks of the freedom the poet is enjoying, and I would like her to enjoy this freedom for ever. (Report) Reply

    And let this mare be ever free
    Breathing the care free air
    Across the greens let her gallop
    Enjoying life thread bare......

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
