Teen Love

Poem By Glenn Bagshaw

The wide world swerved around and then yelled 'now! '
So I loved you as stilted sun's reply
sang high as spring flings birds or rain would know
to tap aware dear hearts below the sky
(with touch of rainbow's ring of sky) . No fear
of sweeter summer ever. Blooms never
let set, but, rather met dusk. Joy was us. Clear
as air's gems render starred light forever.
So it appears, say, when school proms thrive.
Soon shared schemes fade, so adolescent thin.
One day the dream of 'One' dies. Two survive
as some rock split. Loss cinders us within.
Hardens Eden's knocking stones, rock garden blight.
Scrawl sand, 'good day! ' Chisel granite: 'good night! '

Dancing With Words

but now attend- see language as bequeathed.
What sweep of lines from Homer's waltzing days
shall partner me? Stride quick the speech received

The No-Light In The Head

When we finish our dance
our bulk fills the ground,
and the fear that we own
is the thought of no- sound,

Allan Tate At Christmas

On this His winter's day the Christ bells ring
that celebrate this season of despair.
Returns the dear, wronged echoes that now sing
in chorus, almost human, like a prayer.

Funeral Flowers

Cresting flowers are plumed as waves.
Lives, our lives are smashed ashore.
Slips rip tide, waves pour pounded mortal roar.
The single life now drowns.

Afternoon In Summer

Cloud-popping, blue-raved summer sky
with light stuck out like a tongue:
you're the gorgon's gaze
to a warm, dry earth

Lullaby Of A Tired Mother

Evening falls,
dawn shall break.
I'm to pieces
if you wake!
