THE BOY OF WORDS WHO NEVER HAD SPOKEN
bh

THE BOY OF WORDS WHO NEVER HAD SPOKEN


The boy of words who never had spoken
Stood at the edge of a universe hurt
And silently wept for dreams become cursed
And daydreams and rainbows all but broken.
Yes. Even these he had barely known when
Each one collapsed and each one deserted
What had already been a damaged world
Where it seemed most everyone was no one.

His tears turned to ice and then to diamonds
A miracle wrought and value declared
Despite the sad stillness of the moment...
For beauty is beauty never undone
Nor be so true wonder the child of care
These and love too eternally present.

One can regret having never spoken out on things that matter, but the "things" that truly matter will always matter so it is never too late to speak out.  Maybe the unspeaking boy has, or will, find his voice.  I like this poem .... think I'll send it to favorites
Nice,

I think that this is just...David -- exquisite lyrical beauty -- a command of English and a wonderful flow and rhyme that is timeless - - which dances lyrically on the page -- sheer mastery --

I find it interesting that Len thinks Whitman while I thought Shel Silverstein. Whatever or whoever the inspiration it's wonderful!

Did you ever read Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass? Something you wrote here, made me think of that work. Just curious if you did.Good job, dude.
