Kingdom Come


Couple of kingdom dropping down
One like footstool stood under a royal throne
In unending ease beholding the other on its foot
Whose state stage in pressure from a royal foot
Had reign over it in decades designs
In unending realm and century signs
Of great deal and business be
From ancient world with the end yet to see
Until kingdoms reign and rust
These two like sand in sea shore remain just
In ages to come or generation unborn
No race can tell or turn
Fixed this fate frame from fathers fame
Or a change with kingdoms same
In separate mission duties do
Where lies this world and dying infants go
But kingdom dropping down
Other ascending fading town
From where falling rivers fall
And crystal crack shining distance tall
Many wonders wealth courtesy of a distant dingdong come
Leaning on both bothers doing same
Sending up smoke to form a climate change
In due harvest drop change
For watering both blood and flesh
Or soften other kingdoms flush
But in this kingdom mingle work
Do keep mortals away from shock
All bind by single goal
To serve as ointment or coal
Do this all to serve a palace same
For thy random up and thy kingdom com

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
