Fay Slimm.

By Verse

 

 

By Verse.

 

Oh Muse, bearer of wisdom, may your words
which traverse the globe
by verse affect attitudes, remove objections,
enlighten egos, rock divisions,
reunite misunderstandings and by power of
digestion redirect what
the populace thinks unassailable and forgets.

 

May poetic energy slice through innumerable
rules, instil lost sympathy,
drown separation, re-find buried faith within
faded friendships, appeal
for awareness to remember hatred no more,
help those regret who,
        prejudice-laden perceive self has no kinship.        

 

May powerful words smash inbuilt devisive
desire for retaliation,
create instead meant relationships, lasting
handshakes which re-shape
distance placed between hearts by age-old
spite as groundless pride
grows no happiness alongside bitter action.



Oh Calliopé, never forgo using your scribes 
to evoke soul-felt change,
guide poems pleading for writ- resurrection
of love's fallen portals,
re-invite causes for unearthing paradise in 
this war-riddled earth
as you demand minions' pens at the ready.

        Wonderful words Fay.

        Calliope is always looking down on me as I write my words. (I have a picture of her on the wall).

          What a good idea to get regular attention from Calliope when she adorns your wall Andy - -

          Amen!
          how inspiring: some traditions bypass culture divides and simply demonstrate how closely aligned we all are in the end, tell me what sane human wouldn't agree with these hopeful words:
          'Oh Muse, bearer of wisdom, may your words
