Waltz For Zizi

(7 march 1988)

Oh, And They Were So Scared Of Her!


The world fell on her white shoulders
and the stars all, that shone above,
along with the moon and sun,
to make it a bit harder, for her,
to budge,
Oh, and they were so sacred of her!
And I was too.

They deemed her guilty, of poverty
of not having enough dreams on her plate, a gold one,
and chained mountains at her ankles,
and put oceans in her palms,
since to hold the sky, was not much of a challenge, they thought.
Oh, and they were so in love with her!
And I was too.

And I will smile towards her frown,
denude my shoulders, and to her say:
'My love, just stay,
brake my shoulders with your pain
and I shall love you even more.'

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.
