Andrew David Dalby Poems
Carpe Viam Carpe Diem
Come on! seize that hard fought road!
That steady stained and chiselled path,
Scratched out from our chalk filled thoughts
Which touches on our naked dreams.
For it is the here, and that ever now
That desperately pleads to be run upon.
So Let us run!
Run with all our bloody heart's desire
and all our open worth;
Before times iron scythe slips
and casts its cold lot against us.
For the day is not as young,
with an ever eager pumping breast,
It tends to wander without rest.
Come on! let us seize this day!
For destiny is on the horizon, ...
I met the fair-voiced Calliope
whilst waiting For a bus: -
" You must go to Clapham! "
yet so sweetly I might add.
while I noticed she
-with vain indifference-
scratched her arse,
