THE PATH NOT TAKEN


I won't go there-
with the hurt coming back to haunt me.
And through the hedgerows
your footsteps echo,
as if I may turn my back,
and you're there!
On this path,
we would walk,
through the wet grass,
and make homeward at dusk
as the hour passed.
On the winter nights
we kept straight to the road,
moonless,
and pitch-black.
On lighter days,
as on this summer morn,
we may have stopped and gone back,
to where the paths diverged:
the well trodden way
from which we came,
or the path not taken
time and again.
And as the years have faded
I have forsaken
my belief,
that fate dealt
the final blow
and left me with my grief.
Such notions now
are mine alone
on this path I travel on.
Knowing all what was
is now the past
and the future unbegun.
Too easy now
to think and curse;
and regret for what became.
As I leave the path not taken
never to walk
again.

MOONSTRUCK



I watch you,
night after night.
From frosty streets
and open windows.
Rising,
and then hanging
over deep oceans.
You are a torch
out over the wild hills;
yellow white
and then the colour of snow,
a circle that rises
and falls,
casting light on the black woods.
Then,
you fade between cloud
and dust;
closing your eye
a crescent of orange red.
You vanish then,
leaving me empty
searching the constellations,
wondering:
Where did she go?
And why are you here?
Each month
you return,
faceless;
your mask a phantom
of the night.
Is it really you,
coming back,
over the back gardens
of despair?
One night
you will speak,
words
to put an end
to everything that went
before.
And then,
as you drip your wax
of tears,
I will close my eyes...
moonstruck.

THE DAWN CHORUS


Such a fuss,
coming home from the cotton town,
and the birds singing a hymn
as ancient as
Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

As I listen,
I can just make out
the words of Jerusalem.

Strange,
how alcohol can play tricks
on this solstice night;

as the birds bring in the dawn,
and it's
getting light...

It seems your Catholic education in Thorburn Road (Norley) left you with a massive chip on your shoulder, Kathleen.

What's your problem, old girl?

Bitter that you never made it to the Nun's club on Wiggin Lane?

I think those beatings off Murphy and co left you with a permanent scar...

But they did to most Catholic kids of the day.

Shameful.

Murphy should have got 30 years for what he got up to...

Nasty old git.

Whoever said I was beaten at school ????

Let me explain John, my dear boy.

You keep trying to force your attempts at poetry on folks who are clearly not interested and on general instead of hobbies. Why don't you do the decent thing and stop your, less that interesting babble.

You only need to see the lack of response to confirm what I am saying.
But clearly you cannot stand rejections and like any attention seeking bore you persist regardless.

Let's face it, you are never going to make " The Poet Laureate" are you?
You are just an uneducated broom pusher with delusions of grandeur, who went to night school and now think you are some kind of academic.

Grow up, no one is interested. Well the odd one maybe.
Have you tried your prose on the patrons of your favourite watering hole, I'm sure they would appreciate it after your warblings on karaoke. 🗣🗣🗣😂😂😂

Posted by: jarvo (28638)  Report abuse
YOU, are clearly not interested.

Do you speak for others who read and enjoy my work?

Who the hell do you think you are? Telling people what to like and what not to like...

You should learn to read what people have written, where do I tell people what to like or not to like.

If people wish to read and enjoy that's absolutely fine by me, so why put it in general? You had very few readers in hobbies, do you think more people will read and enjoy here, you are dillusional

Your entire poetry thread was removed from hobbies so why persist elsewhere.

PUDDING LANE
(A Computerised Dream)



I lit a candle.

Such a little light, there,
in the darkness.

It flickered,
and then died.

Then,
I walked the streets of London;

each street,
deserted,

candlelit
and closely knit.

in the heat
of a summer night.

Later,
I crossed the river bridge;

I saw the bright moon
dripping its wax:

each drop
turning to orange;

each time
catching fire;

each fire glowing
and then catching fire

to another fire.
Each fire spreading,

into a rolling ball
of flame.

Each one,
the same.

A blanket of fire
spread over a wooden town.

Each house,
burning down.

Down each street,
a similar sound.

The crackling of fire
and flame;

Faces, fleeing,
fire and flame.

Running away from
Pudding Lane.

Away from Pudding Lane...

You're at it again, Jarvo.

THE WEDDING


So they wed,
they said,
with a couple of quid to spare.
Out there,
deep in the cheap wine queues,
dejected, with the late night blues.
Light years away from those walks
in the park,
and the dodging and weaving
after dark.
It's rumoured that being happy
didn't count.
Surely that's what
all this is about?
Apparently,
this wedding never took place.
But the myth and legend
spread at a pace.
And let it be known
that the demons had fled;
that night in the Labour club
when she thought he was dead.
A false alarm
for all to see,
and they reunited, later,
privately.
So when the moon hangs low
and wild dogs rage,
the bride and her groom
will look their age...

Saying I will never comes easy...
If you're hung over and permanently
queasy...

CLAIR de LUNE


There she goes,
following me again...

Across the cropped corn
and over the high trees.

My harvest queen,
her footsteps make no din.

At the turn of the year
with the sheaves gathered in...

HANG WILSON


He didn't hang,
and as we raced past the open water,
our flags flying
in the Saturday morning breeze,
we turned for home.

We left it behind-
the political frustration:
HMS Tiger;
the devaluation of the good old pound.
And then Decimalisation...

Maybe he should have gone to the gallows?
Standing on the deck on the open sea...
But it's only history that followed:
Nothing to do with you.
Nothing to do with me...

FOR DANNY KIRWAN


I never held her hand,
and although you played
like an angel would play,
the night turned into day.

I was just a kiss away,
as we walked together on the soaking grass;
and when we meet in heaven,
I'll have to ask...

Where did it go...
that bright young love on that moonlit night?
And only you will know the answer,
and put my ghosts to flight...

THE BRIDGE OVER THE RIVER ASH


We'll go by the Circle line
Incognito at the afternoon's close.
I'll take with me the Evening Standard
And buy you a pink rose.

It'll be fun again
Me and you out on the lash.
And we'll sing again our drinking songs
On the bridge over the river Ash.

Time for me to give my two penn'orth. I know no-one on here personally by the way, only what gets posted. Jarvo has grated on me many a time - usually over rugby but I do think he likes his poetry. I [personally don't so tend nt to read his Sunday poems. My opinion is, if you don't like jarvo then don't read his posts. And if you do then have some respect for what he's writing. There has been a fair bit of jarvo baiting on this thread. Yes, what he wrote to jathbee was dreadful and he should apologise but the guilt does not lie totally with him. Time for everyone to start acting like adults .

Agreed, apology or not a line needs to be drawn and people need to move on.

Personally I can take Jarvo or leave him, in the same way I can with others. what I will say he is, like several others baited and as is so often the case, the issue is not so much as What is said, but who says it.

Carrying this on is achieving nothing except highlighting agendas and mindsets.

Posted by: jathbee (9130) Report abuse
So retaliating in the callous way that he did exonorates him in your opinion.
