Poets Unite (poem)

Updated on October 17, 2015

Now stand aside us lovers one and all

As we the lost lamenters share our song

A common dirge for those who don’t belong

The sweet soft kisses veiled by parasol


Raise high our words to heavens we arouse

Make symphonies from not so simple sighs

Expound the mystic world in lover’s eyes

So not for aught our dreams of love espouse


The rambling of rabble oft draws ear

Too timid to turn thoughts into a pulse

To bare themselves would cause them to convulse

Such hold to reason why they are not here


Let us who weave of love together stay

Creators of the world where lovers play

      I can see a troubadour leading a swelling group of poets to the call!

      A welcome call to arms, Martin. I will stand with you and the other poets. Great poem.

      An exquisite call to unite, to raise our words to heaven. Indeed perhaps they come from Heaven. Let them return, yes, or find some Souls to share.
