Richard Theze Poems

Red flowers
Not blue
Mark the

The review
Critically claimed,
(Following his debut)
That the actor could not be blamed

I am reminded
Of a first chance
To dance

The Last of the Summer Wine

Through fallen leaves thick with the foreshadowing
Of times colder,

I have joined the ranks
Of those who file
Some distance to work
By train.

In glass, an image perceived,
From which emerges
A masterly, monochrome impression,

By twists and turns
Tiny fragments like
Coloured glass combine;
Create random

blown, like  seed
dispersed on the wind;

the rolling stone,

Raqs-e Sharqi

Just as the ritzy
Single malts and

We are Charlie, We are Paris

Through terror
They may seek to divide us

You knocked
Too quietly
Upon my door

Capital City of Angels,
Venice of the East.

Little Boy Drowned
A Response to the Death of Aylan Kurdi

You did not deserve to die in the coldness of water,

Those days,
Once extant are,
In Autumn, like
Defoliating trees

A travers la terreur
Ils peuvent chercher à nous diviser
Et combattre notre liberté
Pour contredire la démocratie

The bird,
Perched behind
Prison bars,

a picture,
fleetingly seen

What you see is
Not what you get
One does not exist
In isolation

Those Saxon days,
Such history,
Long past,
Is captured there -

As any artist might, I aspire to capture an old friend,
Not in broad, flaming brushstrokes, full-loaded with colour,
But plainly, unequivocally, in black and white,
Simple words on paper, strokes of an ineloquent pen.

Richard Theze Biography

Richard Thézé has always enjoyed reading poetry. In 2009, he was asked by the director of the Bangkok school where he taught to write a poem, as a tribute to the King of Thailand’s sister who had died the previous year. Though originally written in German, the poem was published in a high-society Thai magazine in English. The same year, Richard wrote a second eulogy following the tragic death of a fellow teacher. Moved by the touching words spoken about him by his mother at his funeral service, he felt the need to record the words and his own feelings on hearing them. Since then, Richard has written a number of poems. He does not find the creative process an easy one. The right inspiration and having something pertinent to say on a topic are, he feels, the most important aspects of the writing process.)

The Best Poem Of Richard Theze

The Red Flower

Red flowers
Not blue
Mark the
A symbol
I take it
In timeless
To honour
The brave
Who stood
To their beliefs
And lie now
Bones and teeth
Below ground
The flowers grew
