Edward Hester Poems

There are many who, like me or you
Seek gain without a loss
We work and work, by hook or crook
To win and be the boss.

A good horse and some open prairie
Can free the mind and e‘motions daily

So me ‘n Symbol a’riding go

Dawn of my Heart
When first we met,

Breathlessly, she watched me approach;
Slowing, I considered her slim good looks.
Her tentativeness captured my heart-the wind
Moving her green raiment, so – provocatively.

My little ship is stout and strong.
She stands against the gale.
My mast will hold again the storm
And bear the winded sail.

Nobody knows our names
We were you, but you won't be one again
Like...you knew us as yourself
Yet no...one....is.....here.....as Yourself

Midnight on the Land
Where the ancestors gather
I wait.

In the Land of the Bear in the Year of the Long Winter, the Sun returned at last to the Land
And the People gathered to celebrate the coming-through-of the hard-times.

Once there was a castle strong
With walls near nine feet thick;
Black granite drawn from Scottish coasts
Iron gates from London picked.

I dreamt I was a Hunter strong
Of cunning, stealth and skill
Who tracked the Tiger through the night
And never missed his kill.

I will be pure
I will be good
I will not be misunderstood

The Best Poem Of Edward Hester

Winning And Losing

There are many who, like me or you
Seek gain without a loss
We work and work, by hook or crook
To win and be the boss.

To win alone, we've all been shown,
Is only an illusion.
The balance holds, that truth unfolds.
This law you can rely on.

Advance. Retreat. By love, complete.
We seek illumination.
Our loss offset by love's duet
The 'Law of Compensation'.

By Him alone, the Work gets done
For all, both less and greater.
He comes to Earth in human form
To be Here Now in Matter.

The World you see’s 'dualities'-
Defines our point of view.
To seek to win, ' not lose again,
Is just my need to beat you.

When love's the way I live my life
I give my self to others
To be a light to show the Way
To live as sister or brother.
