Enigma. (a post election poem)
Well now we know how things have gone, how significant might this poem be?
A feeling of peace within?
Remember they have troubles too.
Cuddling close for protection and warmth,
Do you still hold the same view?
You seem agitated and I wonder at what,
Like the black notes on a score.
Making sense to some, but not to others,
There is no need for you to be at war.
Was mother queen so surely crowned,
Self contained like some tight ball.
Still hovering like a raindrop overhead,
No hiding place in thoughts at all.
Alone amid the misty gleam of dawn
The sated birds have had their fill,
No purer scene the whole world round
Each breath a brush mark, still.
The melting stream begins again to flow,
And youthful maidens haste to sing and dance.
All peaceful and sprightly they, on show,
And still you seem to say, perchance.
But now the feet of busy people walking to and fro,
With always a problem, or something to say,
A time to pause, to think, to dream!
And hope tomorrow brings another day.
A fine poem, no doubt about it. Lyrical. I hope that our future does hold brighter days, because we’ve certainly had enough dark ones.

Jolen thank you for being brave 😉 I had to stay unbiased – but I think my message is clear. We seem to have hit a bit of an hurdle, but hurdles can be cleared.
Yes Goth but what about my bloody poem 😉
And what about poor ‘Magna Carta’ – did she die in vain? 😉
Goth. Well I suppose I asked for that. The poem wasn’t anything to do with the election. – It was actually first published in the 1990, and in a book in 2008. I just thought it could possibly fit – with a bit of careful interpretation.. It has had many different interpretation over the years, one of these days I will come clean and explain fully. how it came to be written! All the stuff I put on here has been published, so I wont be altering anything. (not at my age) I have all on seeing the bloody screen… Read more »
