So apparently there’s such a thing as the “Random Acts of Poetry Day.” Who knew? And yes, it’s today, October 4th.
So, to celebrate, I thought I’d offer you some original poetry, by yours truly, to use as fodder for your musicking. Feel free to use it as is, or to mangle it beyond all recognition… take it wherever your inspiration leads you.
Round, plump, gorged on lovers’ dreams
Bright fruit of a Summer’s debauchery
Hazy with the stupor of indolence
Shining with gluttonous pride
Chang E’s courage and sorrow
Reunion a balm given once a year
But too short the night, alas! cruel fate
Luminous exile remains
