A beauty our own

A beauty our own

I feel an aching, a sighing tremble my frame,
like the slow steady soughing of a violin's bow
down to the extremities, a tingling necessity,
a fervent longing oft hard to bear at times.

Immense and epic feelings, landscapes full
of dramatic scenes fill my desolate heart,
yet all of this cannot conceive the huge
magnificence of desire which besieges

the adamantine bastions of such a love
which conquers but does not subdue,
but re-alights like watchtower beacons
the untold need your absence attends.

Give me a small corner of the world
to muse and sigh, hold your hands
to loll in contentment once more,
to wallow in the surety of soul

that completes entire my body,
mind and that intangible longing
which paints faces, styles hair,
plasters beauty in desperation.

None of that, we need no rouge,
no sugar-coated medicine wrapped
in false presentations of vacuity:
we have made a beauty our own.
"Oh what a misery it is to have an intellect in splints".

Saturn, thank you for this dramatic poem. Quite intense thoughts. A style etched by a bard.

A Happy New Year to everyone.

At this time of unrest in the world, a hope calls us to promote peace.

Below is the name of a you tube video, of the song , "Oh had I a golden thread "which was written by the great Pete Seeger. Fellow peacemakers Joan Baez and Judy Collins, embrace the song by a sweet harmony. I hope you enjoy.

At you tube, type in Judy Collins.
Then, go to date added and sort.
"Oh had I a golden thread"
will be on the lower portion of page two.
I am hopeful a kind soul will post a thread for an easier route to this lovely song.
I am not computer alert.

peace to love,
