Daniel Mentor Poems

They stooped sullen
Their friends eloped sudden
Grave makers in the woods
Meowing and hooting to the hoods

Oh! heavens above I look to you
Behold your wonder
Aren't you the cradle and the grave of beauty?
And as you spread your glorious hands

I am surrounded by darkness
Empty Hopeless darkness
Everything I think is mocked by everything I do
All day, emptiness and guilt boo

I grieve for my country, I grieve
Our eyes have seen our ears
We have eaten of our own dung
Is this curse or blindness?

Carefree as I ate
Regardless of tomorrow
My stomach seemed filled
But the taste magnet

I can feel the hollow
The emptiness in the corner where you heap
At the mercy of your reckless shadow
The substance of a true legend yet to be

Nature's pedant, friendly foe
Time's tide - must you
In winter wind the earth
Dampen the fields and frighten the creatures

The Best Poem Of Daniel Mentor

Grave Makers

They stooped sullen
Their friends eloped sudden
Grave makers in the woods
Meowing and hooting to the hoods
Now sleep sleep my little child
Dare not think to chide
Those you knew are lost
Look out! 'tis a ghost

The moon is full and thrills
The night gusty and kills
Many a kid who wonders the lane
Like your friend who met his bane
Sleep sleep my little child
Dare not open that treacherous eyes
To your doom beyond the yard
Grave makers in their pack.
