Tom Allport Poems


Babe hold my hand
And understand
How close can we be
Before we see

An Old Person left alone
No means of support in an empty rented home
The future not thought of
The past ever near


As the chemical wrath rained down
There was nothing we could do
But the white washed cottage
Was hidden and out of view

Once poetry was only
For the educated
And the few
But how times

A little fairy in a tree
Come be happy - sit near me
The World is ours 'til sunset
King and Queen of the Pelicans we

I see a lighthouse in the distance
It's surrounded by sea
The seagulls are singing
They're happy to be free


There is no light
Without the dark
There is no freedom
Without free speech

I often worry
Of where my next meal comes from
Of where do I sleep next?
Of what the future holds?


My lovely rose
You make me smile
You make me cry
You make the stars

All precious moments
Unlike the stars in the sky
Are frozen in time.


Snow, snow, snow
It's everywhere I go
Seeing nature at her best
Magical moments on request

For the low paid and sick
There is not a magic trick
For the cost of Christmas cheer
Which goes up year after year

It was once
Easy to touch
Yet for some
Hard to grasp

If the past
Has been
And the future
Never seen

A simple plan
To unite all
Brotherhoods of man
To freely speak


Painted art is artificial
As it is not built
Or made to last
On the contrary poetry

Peaceful coexistence?
Leaders of the world must choose
NOT hegemony
They ALL must get rid of arms

I take my coat off
I smile as wide as I can
I greet spiders
I want to shine

The Best Poem Of Tom Allport


Babe hold my hand
And understand
How close can we be
Before we see
The strand- which
Pulls and parts
Our hearts
The line so fine
Yours and mine
Loves divine
Through infinite time
Everlasting never parting
Always reaching- reaching
Babe hold my hand
