Treasure Island

Steve Trimmer

(Aug.11,1973 / Manitoulin Island, Ontario)

The Erinnyes


In Erebus be their home
Also as The Furies known
Crone Ladies of Tripartite Queen
The Eumenides, kindly ones, foreseen

To Elysium, they send the souls
If virtuous ones sojourn below
To Asphodel Fields, they send the fools
Who broke The Queendoms golden rules

At junction of three roads they stand
In Tartarus Realm, in underland
Tisiphone, Alecto and Megaera
The compuntions of Gynarchy`s Era

So honour The Oracle`s erudition
Indite the truth of staid perdition
For mythopoeic scribes can`t see
The philogynist realms of The Erinnyes

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
