Anthony O'Connor Poems
Dolphin And Waterman
Sitting on my east deck in the drizzling rain, listening over the dunes to the ocean roar. Surf line running hard like a westbound train, pounding its changing landscape for evermore.
The Woman You Are
You used to tell me how glad you were, lately my love you don’t seem that way. The times we now share have changed,
Owed To The Hero
Some hear that they are all gone in days of past Some hear that all have gone on for fertile grass Some say they remain and roam this great land Some say they still linger to feed from his hand
Winding, turning, rising and falling over vast open ranges and meadows climbing, switching back and narrowing to tall mountain peaks and deep canyons.
Son And Sun
The sun, oh how it does shine brightly. The Son, how bravely he stands alone. The Son, oh how he touch life lightly. The sun, how it does bring us home.
Winding, turning, rising and falling
over vast open ranges and meadows
climbing, switching back and narrowing
to tall mountain peaks and deep canyons.
Snow covered hills and peaks give way
to desolate stretches of deep painted rock
or moss covered hollows dotted with creeks
and the misty beauty of the waterfall lingers.
