The Alibis


Irony makes you the alibi of past wound........
Poetry makes the alibi of a deep love
Words written remain alibi for time tamed and bound
For the future's unshackled rocky alcove

The pains of real life become alibi of our humaneness
The fruits of endevour is alibi of ones sincerity
The agitating surround is the alibi to stimuli and pretense
Your friendship will remain an alibi of happy unity

'The bud' will remain an alibi of passionate union
'The flower' the symbol of remembered fragrance
Your silence the alibi of your understanding in my opinion
A little; shall I back away as alibi to elegance?

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
