Best Poem of Sean Godley

Achilles And Cobain

Those sworn in blood to live wild and die young,
And lend their wayward impulse in dry night,
Live on forever in their joys re-sung.

They take no heed of warning eye or tongue,
No spectres, nor the mortal moral, fright
Those sworn in blood to live wild and die young.

Although, too soon, their songs will leave the lung,
Their laughter and unhesitating sight
Live on forever in their joys re-sung.

Their eyes are fire, their hearts and nerves unstrung,
Inside them flows the stars and dancing light,
Those sworn in blood to live wild and die ...

Sixty Summers

when pollen perfumes with the wind
the rooms and chests of fleeting loom
may meet it sweetly frowning twinned
of weeks unstirred to tap the push
of putrid petals made to shush
the crying child inside the womb
and darker yet some sixty summers gone
it made the youngsters shrill with fun
a will rekindling back my whiles
