Poem By William King

Shimmering hues alight the sky
Where o’er my head and past my soul
A thousand dreams will flit and roll
In timeless dancing for the gods
In hope that one and all might see
And think and feel and dream and fly
And all should likely heave and sigh
For lack thereof the will to try
To seize one’s thread, to guide the hand
Of fate’s cold touch upon our land
The tree, the branch, the cityscape
The world is snared, it’s not too late
Release yourself, just let it go
You too can soar and flit and roll
To validate the time you’ve spent
To show the world what you have meant

Rancid, rotting, raving, eyeless, soulless in the night
Creeping, crawling, crazing, crashing, midnight calls the flight
Untold as yet, unknown to me, unfelt for warmth inside
But now it’s running, rolling closer, gliding as a tide

Imitation Of Horace

can his gen'rous Soul confine
To a small Room, few Dishes, and some Wine,

The Art Of Cookery

Ingenious L-- were a Picture drawn
With Cynthia's Face, but with a Neck like Brawn;


Not, how did he die, but how did he live?
Not, what did he gain, but what did he give?
These are the units to measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.

Shadows Fire

What shadows fly upon the night
And whisper wordless fear
They strike all peoples hearts with fright
And kill our ones so dear
