A Cold Day In The Tower

Poem By Ivan Pine

The wind is blowing wildly
And my eyes do fill with tears,
As a struggling sun shines mildly
The rocking calms my fears.

Trees bend and bow their branches
Thrown about by unseen touch
The eagles soar and take their chances,
Of human’s work, don’t care much.

A sea of patchwork meadows
Spreads out before your view,
Motley shapes and many shadows
Of hills both far and few.

Hurrying clouds all torn and wan
Pierced and stretched by winds on high,
Cover a sad and pasty sort of sun
That dominates a cobalt sky.

To Cut A Poppy, Tall Or Otherwise

The fields are strangely quiet
Around Belgravia now,
The is no bleating of the sheep
Or lowing of the cow.

Giants Shoulders

Searching for knowledge far and wide,
On the shoulders of giants we stand
To grind to dust our ego and pride.
The world turns slowly, time is sand

The Loneliness

The winds whistles fiercely through a crack
Winding around the tower shivers down my back.
Searching, searching for that first tell tale wisp
Of the red steer of trouble, bino’s in your fist.

Walking The Dog

I walk my dog late at night,
And let it poo just where it chooses.
Never mind the neighbors,
I simply all ignore the abusers.

Ode To Joy

It was out the back of Millthorpe
In a shed of some repute,
That I met a lady roustabout
Very capable and astute.
