I Want To Go And Run And Bound.

Poem By Anthony Foster

I want to go and run and bound,
Through the heather like a stag,
To wit this day of rutting,
Freedoms air towards me will be bound.

The deep dark brown of the mountains,
The soft curved lines of the glen,
The gush and the tinkle of the burns,
As they tumble and flow on their way.

I would stand proud and survey all this beauty,
My Antlers standing pointed and proud,
Hark a shot rings out it is all gone,
All I will survey now is someone’s front lounge.

This was good to read, but I am a rhythm and rhyme poet. There were places here where I expected a rhyme but didn't find it. That always bothers me a little. Anyway, the reading did flow in places and the story was wonderful. Something I think about every hunting season. GW62

It was misty and white that Christmas morning,
As we started our climb through the forest,
The dripping green moss scented pines pervading,
Our deepest senses as we walked.

An Ode To Our Dog

You big and lumbering hairy mate,
What is left that you haven’t chewed?
After wolfing whatever is placed on your plate,
And then you are grovelling for food.

How I Feel

Life is about joy and passion,
Not about misery and gloom,
We lose many friends along the way,
So let’s celebrate the people we have known.

1066

The pale winter sun cast reflections from the wet winter grass,
When we walked down the slope past the brown runny bog,
Reflecting on the cries of men and knights running past,
Some falling wounded and dying in their desperate upward slog,

A Beautiful World

Dedicated to Ahmad Shiddiqi

Lines of energy pulse gently through the earth,
Golden rays of dawn lightly brush the ground,

Anger

The beat in my chest catches in my throat,
The unfairness assaults me, my mind‘s in a moat,
I want to smash something, to show how you are so wrong,
The moment is destroyed I want to go I don’t belong,
