Best Poem of Michael J ORourke2

Middle-Age Secrets

I have middle-age secrets to tell my son
While running in China with my meetings done
I wish I could read him my poetry tonight
With the unclouded moon casting her autumn light
I wish I could tell him of the ache in the heart
How the maples sagged as if missing a part
My Chinese hosts offer praise and honor
But the mind wanders off to hug Little Conor

The Beauty Of Lourdes

The beauty of a child asleep
The precious token of a heart to keep
The silence that mystifies the night
The prayers that keep the grotto bright

Tonight Mary smiled- a vision so grand
As we solemnly prayed- touching hand to hand
The angels winked at our initial grasp
My soul signed at your gentle clasp
