Communication Wanted

Poem by Ron Price

Speak to me of freedom
Midst liberty confounded
Of politics and pragmatics
And tyrannies surrounded.
Speak to me.

Talk to me of principle
Of rights fundamental
When seen from above
There are abuses phenomenal.
Talk to me.

Write to me of morals
Albeit morality is rejected
Encompassed by the opportune
Yet ethically suspected.
Write to me.

Proclaim to me ideals
Globally perceptive
Though now of such gravamen
That realism is deceptive.
Proclaim to me.

Teach me of oneness
In an age of boxed speciality
Matter combined with spirit
A euphonious synergy.
Teach me.

    This poem was written by a friend of mine, Graham Nicholson. He asked me to post it at this site. It appears that I am unable to put his name at the bottom of the poem due to the technical aspects of this site. And so I acknowledge his authorship here. He may join this site in due course and post some of his poetry. We shall see.-Ron Price, Tasmania(Report)Reply
