Limerick.51. Samson, The Muscian - Poem by Valsa George

When Orpheus sang on his flute
All Nature listened falling mute
When Samson sang
It sounded like a bang
That sleeping babies woke up with a jolt

    For one like myself who sees poetry in terms of Orpheus (Mallarme said his poems were an ORPHIC EXPLANATION OF THE EARTH!) the figure of Orpheus is a sacred figure, both symbol and reality, both god and man, but now I have to make room for SAMSON of the booming voice a-n-d the crying child. Hey, new guys, Shhh. (Report) Reply
