Words of 'Shine On Brightly' - Procol Harum
"Some say that I'm a wise man, some think that I'm a fool. It doesn't matter either way: I'll be a wise man's fool."

Re: Evil


He who does not know but thinks he knows, he is a fool…ignore him.

He who does not know and knows he does not know, he is teachable…teach him.

He who knows and knows he knows, he is wise…follow him.

Of insidious intent
To lead you to an overwhelming question...
Oh, do not ask, "What is it?"

"from the boy’s casual amazement
at an ex-toddler’s well-designed legs
bold on the brink of the cobbled street
to the animated producer’s response
to a question on his beloved creation,
the others’ reverence and the idea of hope
or curiosity in the discreet surveillance
of the marionettes’ alert mistress. I see
what the filmmaker’s seen in the machine
-ation of his camera’s mimesis."

Re: Evil



           Work


Clock, be damned, again invades
the feathered meadows of my rest,
dissuades the need and all required
to live my life as meant, to wake when rested.
So I rise again, interrupt my dreaming
and undertake the effort
to possess another dollar.

For that alone is all that’s left
of our civil living’s meaning:
how much is made, how much is spent.
I don’t remember where purpose went
but now I scarce recall her.

Re: Evil


Less time than it takes to say it, less tears than it takes to die; I've taken account of everything,
there you have it. I've made a census of the stones, they are as numerous as my fingers and some
others; I've distributed some pamphlets to the plants, but not all were willing to accept them. I've
kept company with music for a second only and now I no longer know what to think of suicide, for
if I ever want to part from myself, the exit is on this side and, I add mischievously, the entrance, the
re-entrance is on the other. You see what you still have to do. Hours, grief, I don't keep a
reasonable account of them;

Re: Evil


I am thoroughly enjoying the thread and the exchange it generates. As it is in the nature of a discussion between poets, delightfully in poetry, here is a more fitting forum than the Poetry's Spectrum forum, which is intended for the poet/critic dialogue.

Re: Evil


when serpents bargain for the right to squirm
and the sun strikes to gain a living wage-
when thorns regard their roses with alarm
and rainbows are insured against old age

when every thrush may sing no new moon in
if all screech-owls have not okayed his voice
-and any wave signs on the dotted line
or else an ocean is compelled to close

when the oak begs permission of the birch
to make an acorn-valleys accuse their
mountains of having altitude-and march
denounces april as a saboteur

then we'll believe in that incredible
unanimal mankind(and not until)

- E.E. Cummings

Re: Evil


Things

Deep and amply worried we
about so many things,
health and money, love and work,
future and potential things;
dull, mundane and earthly things;
the dead-pledge and the will,
inheritance and insurance,
the possibility of even more bad things,
the requisite and customary things,
the things now soon to come.

Sometimes my troubles overwhelm me,
lead me to despair and darker things,
so I sit out here tonight and worry
about all these awful, worldly things.

Then I happened to look up and see the moon,
full adrift on a high slow breeze as if
a-sail on pewter clouds across a silver sea.
I feel the soft breeze on my face.
I notice how all the white fences glow
and the trees are casting shadows.

All of a sudden in this clean new light
nothing seems all that important
and no thing is as important as nothing else.

Copyright 2008 – HARDWOOD-77 Poems, Gary B. Fitzgerald



Writing at Night

I had planned to write about that owl tonight.
I heard him calling from the wood, but now
I’m thinking that I should write my will.
I’ve put it off as long as I could.
I should list all my assets and debts,
my most treasured and valuable goods,
pay the balance on lost bets
for those I leave behind.

Maybe I could just write a letter
to everyone I’ve wronged, that I’ve maligned,
make this page an apology for all
the things I’ve screwed up in my life,
all the things I sought but could never find.
Or, at least, leave a thank you note
for having had it.
