Poem 50 ("I lost my way, I forgot …") from "Book of Mercy"

I lost my way, I forgot to call on your name. The raw heart beat against the world, and the tears were for my lost victory. But you are here. You have always been here. The world is all forgetting, and the heart is a rage of directions, but your name unifies the heart, and the world is lifted into its place. Blessed is the one who waits in the traveller’s heart for his turning.

Leonard Cohen.

summer scented flower

you are my muse beyond savour

a slender willow gliding on by

a summer scented flower in bloom

so delightfully seductive with your

twinkling dark deep alluring eye’s

awakening an old man’s amorousness

from his reconciled drying virility

washed-up by life & aging

At Christmas she comes come-what-may
Tho’ not to those lands far away,
For only in Australia will you ever see
A little bush fairy on the Christmas tree!

Summah.

Breeze is blowin’ wif perfume,

Jes’ enough to tease you ;

Hollyhocks is all in bloom,

Smellin’  fu’ to please you.

Go ‘way, folk an’ let me lone,

Times is gettin’  dearah.

Summah’s settin’ on de th’one

An I’m a-layin’ neah huh !

American negro poet, Paul Laurence Dunbar.

(dialect poem)
