One Great Poem

For the poet the quest
Is for that one great poem
Sonnets from the Portuguese #43
E.B.B. did not know
She had created our greatest love poem
I can almost hear her chirp to Robert:
'I want you to hear something I have written.'
She did not know though perhaps she would care
It was her one great poem.

  31.     

Padre Island National Sea Shore

The beach births relics
Happy flesh walks by
They signal the end of our stay
The waves sing their shore meeting chorus
On the sand fish rot, daughter poles at a jelly fish
A sky of confederate gray billows tell of approaching storm
At the furthest extremity a tree has wrecked
Ship like a limb juts as mast
It is going no where it is so well beached
With Viking head it defies ever breaking waves.
In the face of this eternity - I celebrate
Knowing my miniscule part
Knowing "Invictus" is a very separate issue.

  32.     

Phoo on You Robert Browning!

Phoo on you Robert Browning
Not for your poetry but your theology:

'God's in his heaven
All's right with the world.'

No - God is with us
We turn from the mangled corpse on the cross
Our strivings, our struggles, our pride
Keep us from timeless glazed eyes

No - Ronald Reagan would have loved you
My Mother quoted you
God is with us
'Gott mit uns'
On the belt buckles of an army with broken crosses
That would have conquered the world.
