Valsa George Poems
E-arth shudders on its hinge
A-ll experience that terrific punch
R-oads crack and traffic stops
T-remors rock and havoc wreaks
H-orror strikes and rubble heaps
Q-uest to save the trapped turns in vain
U-nder the rubble, men scream in pain
A-fter shocks and seismic waves,
K-illing thousands, the disaster leaves.
E-ngulfing gloom swallows the Earth
S-ky high dreams, shattered in death!
G-hastly noises heard around
H-aunted houses with thickets surround
O-ld castles where mysteries abound
S-tarved faces ...
There is music slumbering in me
Alas, when I try to pour it out
All that comes out is dead silence
As one with a stone for a tongue
My songs are stuck in my throat
And I choke for breath, for air
As if a noose has been held tight
Around my neck, making me gasp
