Pablo


pablo swept
i am by your lines
of love and sea
so full of life and...life

i would commit
all crimes of writing
to send to you
this posthumous ode
full of superlatives

this heart is caught
like a fish in a net
gasping for water
....for your words

your magic
draws me like
bees to nectare

ants drowned
in sweetness

two lovers
swept by
passion
of first kiss

    This is a beautiful poem John, but I didn't understand the first line. Could you enlighten me? And should that be plural re diamond? Smiling at you, Tai (Report) Reply

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.
