Start

Poem of my heart.

Start.

When will you conclude?

Don’t be rude.

I’ll start when I begin.

Original sin.

Forgive me for my faults.

Lets waltz.

This is more or less it.

Except for this bit.

But someday soon.

Beneath the Moon.

I’ll start again.

I won’t finish then.

Poetry and me.

Set us free.

Save The World

If I wrote the perfect poem to save the world would you read it?

If I gave you a million pounds would you need it?

Would you thank me for it before you put it in the bank?

I don’t expect much of you, to be frank.

People everywhere breathe air.

Some wear masks, pollution doesn’t care.

Some say things are getting better, some say worse.

It’s a bit of both, here comes your hearse.

Who will save the world from us, from each other?

Are you leaving it to me and my brother?

Or another?

Be Mine

Be mine, inspirer of all things.

May inspiration come as Saturn’s rings.

May I inspire and inspired be.

Oh inspiration come to me.

When thou art mine oh I am thine.

Forever glass of wine.

May I bring solace and inspire.

Forever ever climbing higher.

As a family, around a fire.

May I bring happiness and love.

Oh peace, where art thou, whitest dove.

Rest on my shoulder, sing your song.

With you I belong.

May I make right from wrong.

This is my prayer, this my plea.

May I forever walk with thee.

This my poem, let it be.

How great thou art, how little me.

I walk in humility.

Jew Murder

Why? Anne Frank, must you die?

Christ too was a Jew.

That’s telling you.

May we die of natural causes.

Moses made lawses.

Said to come from someone else, believe it or not.

Life is all you’ve got.

Do not preach hate, don’t normalise.

May we realise.

Hatred kills the killer too.

I speak to you.

Oh bitter heart, let love start.

You may be reluctant to swallow a tablet, a pill.

The purpose is to cure, not kill.

Said someone on a hill.

A line to stop people in their tracks.

Don’t shoot people in their backs.

Wandering

My mind wanders, is it too late to save the Earth?

Its our only planet for what its worth.

Or to bring about world peace.

Starting with the Olympic games in Greece.

Wind back, rewind, what did I say, remind, remind.

So I am old, quite likely losing my mind.

I love scenery and poetry, don’t leave it behind.

Worthy Of You

So I may die sometime, will I ever say or do anything worthy of you?

I may not live to see it, I may be in the past, will I speak the truth at last?

Better sometime than never, I’ve been waiting for forever.

I wait for someone else, but no, no one does it, so me so.

Will I say it, tell it, show it?

First of all I have to know it.

Inside myself and inside you is everything and all that’s true.

If I don’t do it why don’t you?

Horizon

I see the horizon and the sea.

Who will come there with me?

What lies beyond, what is my goal?

Beneath the sea are fish, a shoal.

Let us put up sail, you and I.

Sail to where the horizon meets the sky.

Don’t ask why.

Something calls me, calling you.

The sea and sky are blue.

Let us draw a line.

In time.

Welcome horizon, welcome sea and sky.

You are you and I am I.

I am a dot.

Nothing I am not.

You’re all I’ve got.

Thanks a lot.
