From My Present Mountaintop From My Present Mountaintop

From My Present Mountaintop
From my present mountaintopI look back whence I came:An unexpected passage throughSome bleak and rough terrain. I look on what you did for me:The years of borrowed days,The sacrifice of libertyThat only love repays; The grace with which you gave yourselves,Though not without great cost,Not blaming me for fortune's giftNor counting what was lost. I feel a flood of gratitudeLike sunlight through my heart,A light that lights the candle ofThe life about to start....

Flowers Are A Sign Of Love And Beauty
Flowers are a sign of love and beauty.Life with love can be a field of graceOpen to those wise in joy and duty,Wild with passion, civilized as lace.Each blossom that is carried down the aisleReveals the life we've longed for all the while:Sweet-scented sunlight, lush as an embrace....

A Wedding Is A Party A Wedding Is A Party

A Wedding Is A Party
A wedding is a party with,Of course, a wedding cake.But sometimes by the time it comes,It's hard to stay awake.People need to talk a lot,And laugh and joke and kiss,And cry - why do they cry? - and mentionGod and love and bliss.Two people have decided thatThey'll share one house for life,And call themselves, instead of friends,A husband and a wife.And so we have to get dressed up,And eat a lot, and waitFor hours till they finally serveThe great big wedding cake....

Because Like Roots We Intertwine Because Like Roots We Intertwine

Because Like Roots We Intertwine
BEST MAN*Because like roots we intertwine,Planted in a single place,Your happiness is also mine,Deep as love's first blood-borne signIn that most intimate of space.Because like roots we intertwineAnd each for each the world design,Wrestling towards a common grace,Your happiness is also mineThough shared in ways we can't define,Too true to touch, too vast to trace.Because like roots we intertwine,Obliterating every lineThat might divide our long embrace,Your happiness is also mineAs you with nuptial vows combineThat love might weave its buried lace.Like roots, your lives will intertwine.Then let your happiness be mine!MAID OF HONORBecause like roots we intertwine,Living in a long embrace,Your...

As I Wait At The Head Of The Aisle As I Wait At The Head Of The Aisle

As I Wait At The Head Of The Aisle
As I wait at the head of the aisleOn Dad's arm, about to be wed,I remember the light of your smileIn the days when I still was a child,And you kissed me goodnight in my bed.And I think, as I wait by the aisle,Of an innocent world without guile,An Eden where goodness is bred:Lit by the light of your smile,A place where one tarries awhile,Sheltered from sorrow and dread.I wait by the head of the aisleWith a gift that no years can defile,A beauty no winter can shed.And I walk in the light of your smileTo a life that was mine...

Voices Of The Dead Are Rarely Heard Voices Of The Dead Are Rarely Heard

Voices Of The Dead Are Rarely Heard
Voices of the dead are rarely heard.Each of us should set aside the timeTo listen to their lost and anguished word,Empty of all sense save the sublime.Reason cannot reason to an end,A moment of its own annihilation.Nor can one love or witness comprehend'Ere death reveals their unconcealed relation.So let us long remember those who died,Doing honor due, for they were lovedAlive and dead by those whose hearts abide,Yet yearning though the mountains be unmoved....

Victories Retain The Stench 
of Death
Victories retain the stench of death.Each is cause for gratitude, not joy.Those who win are fated to destroyEvery grace whose burning gives them breath.Remember those who fell on every side,And grieve not just for those you call your own.No torturer or tyrant dies alone;So may you weep for every fratricide.Death is no fit dwelling place for pride,And hatred's not...

Victories Require 
validation
Victories require validation.Each act of violence must file its brief.The loss of loved ones must find consolation,Ennobled by some passionate belief.Regard, then, all the murdered of the ages,Aghast at all the words that justified,Not without cause, the ever righteous rages,So small against the sum of those who died.Deliverance depends upon the wagesA...

Victories Are Never Victories Victories Are Never Victories

Victories Are Never Victories
Victories are never victories.Every battle waged is a defeat.The end contains the seeds of the repeat.Even heroes will take liberties.Remember this, then, when you go to war:Although the cause be just, the means is not.None can write in blood without a blotSeeping back beneath the bedroom door.Death cries for vengeance; destruction for destruction.A battle plan is always a reduction:You kill your foe yet murder so much more....

Very Soon I'll Hear The Victims' Screams Very Soon I'll Hear The Victims' Screams

Very Soon I'll Hear The Victims' Screams
Very soon I'll hear the victims' screams,Even in the midst of my content,The end not quite enough to quell the means,Each nightmare not exactly what I meant.Recruited in a time of peace, I wentAbroad to serve more adolescent dreams,Not unaware, of course, I might be sentSomeday to where the widow wails and keens.Dumb ignorance! For now I must repentAberrations no regret redeems,Yet hounding me like dogs on mayhem bent.... Poems - Post by : bzprod - Date : May 2012 - Author : Nicholas Gordon - Read : 1275

Vast Fields Of Crosses, All The Same Vast Fields Of Crosses, All The Same

Vast Fields Of Crosses, All The Same
Vast fields of crosses, all the same,Each embellished with a name.This is what your love had sought!Embrace the child become a thought,Reduced to regimented loss,A name screwed on a plain, white cross!Nor can you feel what you must feelSince what is real cannot be real.Devour the moment, make it yours,As life continues on all fours,Yearning, begging at closed doors....

divine
Words can tell what hearts divineThis most romantic time of year:So will you be my Valentine?

living
Very little love is lost in living.A star can fill a universe with light,Lasting not one second less for givingEach of us the gift of its delight.Nor do we love ourselves the less for loving,Taking others' pleasures for our own.In love there is an ecstasy unmoving,Neither more engaged nor less alone,Eternal in its house of flesh and...

Valentines can do the math:More than one is none.Intimacy is intimate,Else one must be alone. One can be a ValentineOnly if one willTake one for oneself, and thenLet the heart be still.

To my Valentine, with all my love,Of whom I cannot say enough in praise:May my love for you sufficient prove,Yearning to redeem your caustic days.Vortices within may drag you down.Anchor, then, in my serenity.Love saves some who otherwise might drown,Embarked alone upon their Galilee.Nor should you deem your own love not enoughTo be...

This day of love I take a vowTo love you well through all the daysOf long and labyrinthine ways:But I would love you anyhow.

No love so strong it needs no sign,Nor feeling deep it needs no light:So will you be my Valentine?
