At Sunset
By Emily Pauline Johnson – 1861 – 1913

I.

To-night the west o’er-brims with warmest dyes;
    Its chalice overflows
    With pools of purple colouring the skies,
    Aflood with gold and rose;
    And some hot soul seems throbbing close to mine,
    As sinks the sun within that world of wine.

II.

    I seem to hear a bar of music float
    And swoon into the west;
    My ear can scarcely catch the whispered note,
    But something in my breast
    Blends with that strain, till both accord in one,
    As cloud and colour blend at set of sun.

III.

    And twilight comes with grey and restful eyes,
    As ashes follow flame.
    But O! I heard a voice from those rich skies
    Call tenderly my name;
    It was as if some priestly fingers stole
    In benedictions o’er my lonely soul.

IV.

    I know not why, but all my being longed
    And leapt at that sweet call;
    My heart outreached its arms, all passion thronged
    And beat against Fate’s wall,
    Crying in utter homesickness to be
    Near to a heart that loves and leans to me.

Disturbia – An excerpt from “Me & Him”

Disturbia


Of a life without love
Embellished with nightmares hanging on the wings of a black dove
Of horrendous, bold images full of disdain and cult
Cries unfortunate shadowing unblissful nights of stench
Bodies upon bodies of blood lost upon an alter
Gutted and drenched.


Of a life filled with eternity
What good is time if there is no joy
Wrongful passion misconstrued on the rims of pain
Innocence lost in the arms of guttural pleasures
Death would be that heavenly key.


Spare us the lives of the newly born
Another generation of newly dead!

Thundering gifts fall, descending from the skies

Brimming richness as God so desired!

To The River
By Edgar Allan Poe – 1809-1849

I.

Fair river! in thy bright, clear flow
Of crystal, wandering water,
Thou art an emblem of the glow
Of beauty, the unhidden heart,
The playful maziness of art
In old Alberto’s daughter;

II.

But when within thy wave she looks,
Which glistens then, and trembles,
Why, then, the prettiest of brooks
Her worshiper resembles;
For in his heart, as in thy stream,
Her image deeply lies,
His heart which trembles at the beam
Of her soul-searching eyes.

Deadwood – Haiku by Chriselda B

Deadwood


Oaks of tanned, wooden furniture


Beautifully sculpted, dark dead architecturally sound showpieces


Longing for a hint of nature.
