Shelter Poem by Amos Greig

Shelter

Rating: 4.0


Sheltered field of pleasant green
The susurrus of distant wind,

Nature gossips
Protests at intrusion,

Between windswept trees,
Belfast, metallic fossils, David and Goliath,

Painthall Studios: the vistas
testaments to urbanized myth

This is my quiet place,
A step away from the world.
Apart and yet a part.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
When I need to think, to clear my mind I have a special place where I can be apart from the world and yet still observe it.

i always say this - mostly all great poets can be judged by how well they can touch you with a short poem. how much of the universe can you cram into 12 lines or so? Kerouac could cram about 1/5 of all existence in about 2 pages (in his novels) ... I always love to find others who have that ability.
