TWO WITNESSES--What do They Witness About?
Quoting: Le Palma
... Quoting: Le Palma
when the white eagle of the north
is flying overhead
and the browns, reds, and golds , of autumn.
lie in the gutter.......dead
remember then the gulls of summer,
carried on wings of fire
come to witness spring's new hope,
born of leaves decayed.
as new life-
will spring from death-
at her leisure.
love of love
love of life
love of living, and giving....
gives in return the wondrous yearning, for truth, almost seen.
and forever we'll stand
on the threshold.... of a dream....
- a poem that serves as an intro to the song "have you heard" by the moody blues-
i submit this to you
my courageous little one
in the fondest hope
that it may inspire you as it has me
thank you ac, i had committed that to memory long ago, looks like i remembered most of it correctly. loved the poe also. like many neophytes, i eagerly followed e.a. poe through poignant realms of poetry, melancholy and macabre. when i was a toddler, my grandfather would recite " el dorado", as we gathered eggs or threw hay to the cattle on his farm.
an errant knight,
in sunshine or in shadow
had journeyed long, singing a song of distant el dorado.
but he grew old,
this knight so bold
and o'er his heart a shadow
fell, as he found, no piece of ground , that looked like el dorado.
and when his strength,
he met a pilgrim shadow.
shade, said he, where could it be, this land called el dorado?
o'er the mountains of the moon
down the valley of the shadow
ye must ride
ye must boldly ride
the shade replied
if ye would search for el derado
thank you poe,
thank you grandpa,
thank you ac
most of all thank you fair lady le palma, for your forbearance as i indulged my self in a ramble
