Pages Of The Earth

Poem By Barry Dummett

Looking over the valley from a rock
I hear sounds I can not mock
The birds in all their forms
Are singing from their leafy dorms
Listen to their symphony of mirth
Composed from the pages of the earth

In the distance I can see suburbs
Nothing natural within these kerbs
Although order has its place
I find no peace in a rat race
Instead a recipe for disaster and dearth
Displayed upon the pages of the earth

Now it's hot when it should be cool
A kookaburra laughs but who's the fool
Man's technology may hold our fate
But we must change before it's too late
Read the message around its girth
Printed on the pages of the earth

My Rainbow Girl

Being with you is the ultimate treat
Life is so perfect every time we meet

Everything about you is so right

That Rose

Are you smiling now when you remember that rose?
Of a perfect night together that lingered long after
Be assured that I will not keep any secrets from you
What you see is what you get every time we meet

Wine And Rainbows

Lahni, say you will certainly fly to meet me on a Friday
After a reunion of our pleasures, we awake on Saturday
When we will drive via the town of an old poet's birth
Then on to our special hideaway, real heaven on earth

Upon Your Screen

The mobile chimes and it's a text
You wonder what could happen next
A message that has come so far
Proposing a journey in a car

Book Your Flight

I am really longing to hold you in my warm embrace
Wearing around your lovely neck, my white necklace
Once again, I gaze upon your glowing cheeks and face
When this time we meet up at my high-rise unit place
