Best Poem of Eugene Mattingly

Welcome To The Night

When evening time has come
toils of the day are done
watch the setting sun
change the face of the sky
as the evening sun sinks
into the horizon
sounds of the night
begin their symphony
birds begin to roost
their chatter slowly fades
creatures of the night
take their place on the stage
The moon rises slowly, announcing
the changing of the guard
coolnes felt all around
Earth surrendering her warmth
as the sun hides her face
Welcome to the Night.

Ode To My Hometown

I didn't know it at the time,
but living in Durant - was just fine,
as close to heaven as you could get,
the times we had I can't forget.

even in the classroom, it was hard to study,
my mind was elsewhere, with my buddy,
the teachers they didn't understand,
there was more to life than the history of man.
