Randy McClave Poems

I Heard The World Crying

As though she was dying,
And then came the rain
As though sympathy to her pain,

Bring me flowers when I am living
Don't bring me them when I am dead,
Let me enjoy them in the giving
My mother always had said.

Guard Your Heart

Guard your heart as if it were gold
Guard it from thieves, so it won't be stolen or sold,
Protect it surely as you would protect your love
Keep it safe and protected and always there of.

Then He Cried

When he left his mother and the doctor spanked his hide
In that delivery room he then first cried,
But, that cry that he uttered so proudly and loud
Was a proclamation to all, that he'll make his mother proud.


Victory is ours!
Said one crow to the other,
As they soared in the sky above.
For below them they had spied

'I see life as a poem waiting to be written' - I loved this beautiful sentence taken from the poet's biography. I concur with the poet's observation of life. Just now I have read his poem- 'She Wrote Me A Letter'. His pain (imaginary or real, whatever) touched me and I wish him well. I shall read more of his poems.
