We Refugees
by Benjamin Zephaniah

I come from a musical place
Where they shoot me for my song
And my brother has been tortured
By my brother in my land.

I come from a beautiful place
Where they hate my shade of skin
They don't like the way I pray
And they ban free poetry.

Letter To N.Y.
by Elizabeth Bishop

For Louise Crane
In your next letter I wish you'd say
where you are going and what you are doing;
how are the plays and after the plays
what other pleasures you're pursuing:

taking cabs in the middle of the night,
driving as if to save your soul
where the road gose round and round the park
and the meter glares like a moral owl,

De Rong Song
by Benjamin Zephaniah

Your house is
Falling down
And you got
To eat,
Don't worry
Be happy.

The Mores
by John Clare

Far spread the moorey ground a level scene
Bespread with rush and one eternal green
That never felt the rage of blundering plough
Though centurys wreathed spring's blossoms on its brow
Still meeting plains that stretched them far away
In uncheckt shadows of green brown, and grey
Unbounded freedom ruled the wandering scene
Nor fence of ownership crept in between
To hide the prospect of the following eye
Its only bondage was the circling sky

The Fallen Elm
by John Clare

Old elm that murmured in our chimney top
The sweetest anthem autumn ever made
And into mellow whispering calms would drop
When showers fell on thy many coloured shade
And when dark tempests mimic thunder made -
While darkness came as it would strangle light
With the black tempest of a winter night
That rocked thee like a cradle in thy root -
How did I love to hear the winds upbraid
Thy strength without - while all within was mute.

Magnolia Days

delight of jade spring
pink perfumed mass profusion
sunbathing bronzed blooms

cardinal sings loud
from his perch next to blue sky

floral flamboyance
drawing the world's attention

When She Was Mad-Nursery Rhyme
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Sometimes she was mad, and when she was, she frowned,
Then she would pout, stamping both feet upon the ground.
Frogs would start croaking, and the cats would run around,
As close by passed a colorful parade, of princesses crowned!
Into tall, wild green grasses, the big bunnies would bound,
While laughter would pause, on the giddy merry-go-round.
Dogs would start barking, and sad bluebird would fly down,
Crooning its beautiful song, until her smile again she found!

Song of an Idiot
by Jonathan Tafreg

Hear the way he sings, like a frog
Hear his wisdom, this son of a hog
He sings about freedom,
And peace,
And love,
And irrelevant kings.

Hear the sound of his mouth,
Heavenly trumpet of the south,
He deafens our ears,

The Golden Hours
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

sitting on the porch
surrounded by sun and blooms
watching life go by

lemonade and song
a concert in azure skies
the daily reprise

it's a perfect hour
as honeybees quest for gold
