oh don't forsake

We are your balm

Thanks for the words on Marbles. Total nightmare all this info bombarding us wherever we go - what used to be addictive is now becoming a total nuisance. So info overload - go take a jump somewhere squishy. 😏

re 'A freedom to express'

The ability is not the right; without neither the voice nor the ability to write, the righteous are diminished. I think we are broadly in agreement. Tommy

Droll are these poems
unabashedly so
they aren't too good
but so it goes,
I find humor in things
it just naturally flows
when it comes to a rhyme
I just can't say No.

I just saw your comments on my Profile page. Apologies for the delay in acknowledging them. I don’t check it very often. Glad you enjoyed your time in Devon. We will be there in September after a week in Christchurch.
As for the β€œWalk the Line”/ Just Giving thing - not to worry. I know you have a good heart. We made around Β£500 this year but the walk was hard! Give me abseiling from 300’ any day.

Roll up windows, ugh
i remember how nice it was to get push button windows
so you did not have to stretch all the way over to roll up the
passenger side or the rear windows in a rain
i remember all this because i am old
but I have not yet rolled up my mind.

Good Evening Mark (is it?), you did me the immense favour of re-acquainting me with the beautifully crafted poetry of Robert Laurence Binyon 1869–1943. I remembered 'For the fallen' very well but had either not read or forgotten (mea culpa..) 'The burning of the leaves' which I found an immensely brave and moving poem:

They will come again, the leaf and the flower, to arise
From squalor of rottenness into the old splendour,
And magical scents to a wondering memory bring;
The same glory, to shine upon different eyes.
Earth cares for her own ruins, naught for ours.
Nothing is certain, only the certain spring.

John

Hello Mc - thanks for the info about the poetry competition. I might send in the Pine poem. Thanks also for your nice comment - I can't bear seeing a tree felled for unimportant reasons . those pines are lovely but they do create some problems - the roots are on the surface, at least some of them, so they deform the tarmac which is dangerous for mopeds or bikes, especially in the dark - also if there is abundant snow, (not v often here) branches tend to fall off as they are top heavy. On Elba there are so many they are like green seas, and you don't realise how many villas are hidden in them - lucky b...........s!
Hope you are keeping well - Jennifer

Hi M.C.
Thanks for taking the time ...
I think I could write a book about some of the ways that the literati commented on the fact that my first poems only were written in rhyme.
As my latest tomb suggests I only started writing (anything) after my first wife died, 12 years ago. Poetry (if that's what I write) certainly helped.
Poetry also helped in me finding wife no.2, but that's another poem.
If it works, it works

Hi M.C.
You did absolutely nothing wrong with regard to your viewing my Jigsaw 'poem'.
I don't think I'd done a jigsaw for 60+ years, but ...
My Father in Law gave me a jigsaw for Xmas and it became such a compulsive task in finishing it, that I could have wanged it out of the door.
I began to write a poem about the frustrations, but then thought that I could express my feelings better by just writing nothing.
Me trying to be a smart-arse.
At my age I should know better.

Hope I may be forgiven πŸ˜ƒ

Definition - Confused
Many thanks for comment. I wasn't sure when I posted, if certain parts may cause offence, but the feelings contained in the poem are gathered from conversations I've had with real people (family) and the frustrations they feel at life moving on at such speed.
