  1837.     

Foolish Continuance

I and my Foolish Continuance,
What will it all bring?
Shall it give me a further chance?
What shall tomorrow sing?
Give me a morn splendor and new,
Everything fresh to the first;
Only a song for the very few,
What they will long for and thirst.

Can I not bring into the light?
Yearnings that I thought were gone;
Give it another new flight,
Until the wings are done.
Why am I so out everywhere searching?
Living in past and longing;
What will the day tomorrow sing?
When we are nearer to spring.

I and my Foolish Continuance,
But all is though with my thought;
I have seen it at first glance,
Everything that chances have brought.
Why am I so out everywhere searching?
When I am growing too old;
Should I not be more alerting?
For nothing for real I can hold.

Footsteps (From, The River Sings On)

From my window
I see the winter's snow,
in the morning glow
of the yesterdays.

Footsteps to and fro
- rays from the gone night.
Soft distances adagio
in the evening flight,
- all is in my heart now.

The air, so sweet of spell,
as the clouds go by
with greetings and farewell,
to the dreams
that around here lie.
All is in my heart now.
 
Peter S. Quinn
   
 

   
   
 

  1839.     

Footsteps Of Going

O footsteps of going are all now gone away
Dreams that once were feelings inside of me
Rendezvous to seclusion rustic day
Like breezy blow outside the window so free

My heart in a pounding of whispering still
All that was trying to find the road ahead
Yesterdays of gone thought never to fulfill
Soft lines of leaves that autumn once bled

You and I once morning birds of blue sky
Every passage thru to find low and high
Day by days to future in rising fresh dawn

Love themes of the night that we both knew
Now in dark deep of loneliness upon
What's now of love that once was innocent new
 
Peter S. Quinn
   
 

   
   
 

  1840.     

For A Moment I Had The Word

For a moment I had the word,
But that was just dust of time;
I was sending messages to souls,
But they were just sand corns.
I've been swallowed by the air,
Of all the world forgetfulness;
Like the dust that flies in the wind,
So my spirit has dimmed to the stars.
Every moment is just a breath,
Or a shadow from the rays of the sun;
For a moment I had the word,
Like the flickering light of a candle.
I was gathering around me the stories,
Of the old folklore times;
When there was life in those gray stones,
And the whispering wind had its sayings.
In the moonlight and after dark hours,
And there was mystic in the shadows by the river;
And the callings were the spirits of the past,
For a moment I had the word
(...old folk tales live among the stars) .
 
Peter S. Quinn
