London 2012 - Poem by Godfrey Morris

London 2012
by godfrey morris

Alignment of stars shoots high
Parading four years' worth
Of bestowed heavenly gifts
East follows West
North greets his South
At the compass of time
Where the Big Ben chimes
Every nation, each tongue
There they fold!
Promise fulfilling golden goal

A flag to wave
A crowd to cheer
A will to give
A song to sing

Once again they have gathered
To dazzle us eyes
With wondrous strides
As Zeus lightning bolt - runs by
To hold a throne

To take the world
To be atoned
To claim a victory
To walk with history

    You should be a playwright if you enjoy Shakespeare so much! Go and give it a try!

    Excellent poem! I love the fact there is a well balanced connection between the physical London 2012 and the hopes and aspirations which it represents. (Report) Reply
