Stephen Gill's Divergent Shades

Divergent Shades as a thin collection of poems
Opens up with
Prayer For The Coming Years,
A poem
In which he seeks
To weed out human misery and evil,
Bigotry and cruelty,
Satanic advancement
And human brutality

Followed by, To Mother,
I Wish You Were Alive,
Wind, Puppet, Tears,
Why, Life, Ode To Mosquitoes,
A Poet, Disappointments,
At The Wrong Time of Night,
How To lose Blessings, Writer,
Muse, Address of Today,

Recollections of Texas, Birth of Poems,
Youth, Not A Lonely Art, Delicate Oars,
Rejections, Idol,
Stale Crumbs,
Bride Is Watching, Light of Truth,
The Prince of Peace

To tell the things simply
Without any configuration
Or ambiguity
Or anything to put air on,
Free from unnecessary metaphors,
A poet of simple expression and simple things,
Telling plainly
The naked truths of life,
The realities of human life and living,
Human hunger and milk of kindness.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
