A Gypsy's Life
A gypsy am I, as I rove on the downy dale;
Aside from the taverns, the fields are my only vale.
I drink from my carafe a fairy-fermented brew,
And I dream of fair love, beneath a radiant sky of blue.
Ladies And Men

The window box looks down below
To the avenue where young ladies pass
An Angel's Song
An Angel's Song

We ventured out in the gray of night,
On amber furrows beneath linden trees,
The morn is giving birth
To the dawn- yet to reign, still budding, undone.
Shall you play the earth,
And me the sun? -
I wove my verses in a cluster of purple stars,
While dreaming on the meadow in the tender, April rain.
A mendicant, I wandered to the outskirts of the plain,
And I slept in the glow of a campfire's bars.

Most of my poetry was written on the road, far away from my boyhood home in New York City. I lived in abject poverty most of the time, depending on the generosity of strangers and friends. Most of my verse was composed in fields, in furrows, on beaches, in graveyards, in wooded lands and in between my returns to New York City, the majority of my rhyme was written in far away places such as Paris, London, California, much of New England, Florida and The Midwest. My first published book, 'Selected Poems' was written in Europe over two years. I composed a volume of verse never published to this day while I lived in Paris entitled 'Parisian Verse'. The majority of my poetry composed since I was in High School to the present day has never been published. In addition to 'Selected Poems' I have published over 500 poems in seven subsequent volumes.

Did you all not know that agony and sufferings are the path that is paved to Paradise? Did you all not know that every tear shed upon the earth shall be transformed into an eternal crown of glory? Have the courage to feel your pain, and an infinity of definitive happiness shall be your reward forever.

YOUR LIFE When the redolent breezes kiss your hair Where we recline upon the wine scented chair In the regal courtyard As the rain begins to fall I love you ever more As your bard, Your Life to me is all and all. And as the nascent night Ascends with stars of white Glittering like diamonds upon your sable gaze of gilded gold, I become enraptured in love Instilled with concertos from above.

With all due respect to the late, celebrated Maya Angelou, she had more grammatical errors in her poems than there are sands on the beaches.

John Lars Zwerenz is the best of our American poets since Maya Angelou. His verses are romantic, yet at the same time highly impressionistic, and his pen is always straight and on the mark.
