R K Summers Poems

A whisper in your heart
When love is torn apart
Before your very eyes
A storm within your mind
...

This song I sing is for your heart
Not your ears
Take it with you, and listen for it
In the trees and the wind
...

Clockwork ticker, beating pulse
It lives and loves on wild impulse
Shiver and shake like feverish imps
If you look inside and take a glimpse
...

I sat upon my window ledge,
And sang my song of sorrow.
I stepped into the evening air,
And wondered of tomorrow.
...

Let’s talk about war
We’ll discuss Tennyson
And Brooke
Owen
...

A wolf is descending
A wolf with a single, piercing, blazing blue eye
And a Great Father who spawned his children from his own broken body.
The armour protects the fleshy child within
...

To the east lies Aryndel,
The cathedral on the moor.
To the west is Brackenpeth,
The home of barbarian shore.
...

They call her Tatty Hex
I heard them call her fae
She’s the one who flies at night
To drive the ghosts away
...

At night
At my window
I look out
The moon is a midnight sun
...

Her world is shaped by nameless things
Hear the wordless song she sings
It whispers in the darkened halls
It lives, it deepens, and it calls.
...

Behind the emerald ferns,
Bowstrings taut and set,
Between the trunks of mighty oaks
Where the fairies met
...

“There is a War in Heaven”

The wingbeats of distant angels
Sound against the sky
...

To wander through the forests,
And dance beside the Faes,
To marvel at the mighty Phoenix,
As she is set ablaze.
...

Come dance with me among the jewelled hills
Alive with madness and bright faerie thrills
The great stone circles stand proud and tall
Pass through the veil and enter our hall.
...

The cold closes in around me
So I can’t breathe
I’m frightened by what I see
The statues seem to move
...

Echoes of opera in twisting design,
Tendrils of shadow, the falling divine,
Eyes reflecting the conflict of time,
Heart rejects vice of cascading sublime,
...

Scattered among ashes the withering rose,
Alone on the battlefield, a greying breeze blows,
The theatre of wonder rendered unknown,
And a keeper of keys to a secretive soul,
...

A faded amaranth on corrupted design,
Begging for memory of shady decline,
The poet and riddler rise from the east,
Twisting in cobweb a decadent priest,
...

Starlight sparkles on the sea,
Washing magic over me,
Mystery lies in the night,
Wishing for the ancient sight.
...

R K Summers Biography

Hailing from the grim and grey North East, RK Summers is a great lover and hoarder of books. Her love of the literary world began at the tender age of five, when, as a ridiculously serious child, she wrote her first ‘story’ about a dancing tree, complete with a bittersweet ending as a lament for the loss of fairy tale magic.

Her fascination with the ancient legends of Britain has led her into many adventures in Faeryland, and she often requests to be given back to the faeries if she’s found wandering.

When she’s not writing down these adventures, she enjoys the music of Loreena McKennitt, the peace and quiet of woodland, and picnicking.

Her vices include (but are not limited to) addiction to coffee, sugary foods, tormenting human beings, and video games.

The Best Poem Of R K Summers

The Angel

A whisper in your heart
When love is torn apart
Before your very eyes
A storm within your mind
When hope becomes entwined
And ashes fall from the skies

The angel takes down the sword
Warning the heavenly lord
Dying in the snow
Hands pressed in worship
Prayers hang on her lips
Drowning in her woe

Eastern promises of love
On wings of a silver dove
Awaken the fire inside
Kisses are nothing but lies
From lips that speak goodbyes
A celestial Jekyll and Hyde
