    Anyone Else?

    With Valentines day coming up in a few weeks,
    someone might just get caught with the need to
    extemporize something. Here are my two favorites:


    Go, Lovely Rose!
    by Edmund Waller

    Go, lovely rose!
    Tell her that wastes her time, and me,
    That now she knows,
    When I resemble her to thee,
    How sweet and fair she seems to be.

    Tell her that's young,
    And shuns to have her graces spied,
    That hadst thou sprung
    In deserts where no men abide,
    Thou must have uncommended died.

    Small is the worth
    Of beauty from the light retired:
    Bid her come forth,
    Suffer her self to be desired,
    And not blush so to be admired.

    Then die! that she
    The common fate of all things rare
    May read in thee
    How small a part of time they share
    That are so wondrous sweet, and fair!


    The Silken Tent
    by Robert Frost

    She is as on a lawn a silken tent
    At midday when a sunny summer breeze
    Has dried the dew and all the ropes relent,
    So that in guys it gently sways at ease,
    And it supporting central cedar pole,
    That is its pinnacle to heavenward
    And signifies the sureness of the soul,
    Seems to owe naught to any single cord,
    But strictly held by none, is loosely bound
    By countless silken ties of love and thought
    To everything on earth the compass round,
    And only by one’s going slightly taut
    In the capriciousness of summer air
    Is of the slightest bondage is made aware.

    This Poem by Frost has a wonderful interpretation titled "Inner Strength"

    Valentines day's come and gone, but other birthdays, anniversaries, and special days keep coming along. With the high cost of "gift cards" - I saw a Mother's Day card at the CVS for $15.00 - I've resorted to making my own, printing them, or over-printing on "blank cards" with nice art-work on my computer. But to do that I for one need some inspiration, and the shortest way to find sentiments said well is in poetry.

    So recently when I needed a few lines for a birthday card for my wife of many years I "stole" a few lines from a poem by Marianne Moore "A Face" (I have colored the stolen words). When commenting on a woman's age, a man has to be very careful. Here are my words made into poetry as best I could:

    (To My Wife)

    I just wanted with this card to ask…..
    Why time seems not...take you to task?
    Photographed by recollection –
    It is no exaggeration…..
    To my mind…..to my sight,
    You remain…..a delight.



    Here's another favorite with some real potential:

    Upon Julia's Clothes

    Whenas in silks my Julia goes
    Then, then, methinks, how sweetly flows
    The liquefaction of her clothes.

    Next, when I cast mine eyes and see
    That brave vibration each way free,
    Oh, how that glittering taketh me!

    By Robert Herrick - (1591-1674)

    I wonder how many women here would consider vaginoplasty?

    This was written to my wife over thirty years ago.

    After Three Years

    Like an archeologist
    I have dug down through many layers
    to select and label you
    and at each depth a small mystery remained
    deeper the solution lay I thought
    until the data grew unbearable
    and you remained surfaceless.

    You are driving home from work. So drunk you are not even sure you are off work.

    Never mind how you got that drunk at work.

    It’s all a crapshoot, but you know you will get there.

    Home that is, there is not place like it, or so Dorothy says.

    A hoon pulls up with a car full of bored looking girls with too much make up.

    You give the girls a look and for the first time in their lives they feel like Grace Kelly.

    The man-boy behind the wheel shouts with his moter, confused and abused.

    He wants to race. Prove something. Your mental tank is full of gazzzzz.

    You race him!And win! In a fucking Hyundai Getz! You win! (Cut the bastard off, kamakazi chicken!)

    Next thing you know you have made it to no place, where we are all going in the end, home that is.

    It an't pretty, it an't supposed to be. THAT! Is drinking.
