Ecanus•net :: Poems
So here we are, Fallen Angel's poetry page. I thought about arranging them by subject, then I thought about arranging them by date, and then it all started getting rather complicated, so I decided instead just to stick with a plain and simple A to Z by title. Want to see all the poems with titles beginning with C? Just click the 'C' and as if by magic the poems shall appear! Them squirrels that run this place ain't half speedy!
This is my assorted collection of poems spanning the years. These cover many times, places and feelings. Some have details of where I was when I wrote them, what I was doing, and what inspired them. With others, it's so long ago now I've no idea where they came from, only that I liked them enough to keep them around.
Some were written as 'me', some for other people, and some while I was trying to get "into character" for whatever I happened to be writing at the time – the weird ones, I'm claiming insanity grounds on. ;–)
The dawn steals across the horizon
a watery, hazy sun,
From apple tree gnarled and aged
a robin watches warily,
A portent of winter to come.
Arachnids spin filigree houses
bejewelled with diamond dew,
Mist hangs low over fields and woodland
shrouding the scene serenely,
And stripping the landscape's hue
Under foot crisp foliage crackles
a rainbow carpets the ground,
Leaves of gold, russet and brown lie broken
their job for this year now over,
And bare trees around are uncrowned
The heat of summer is gone now
in it's place sharp autumnal chill,
But in the solitude of this autumn morning
mist will melt away slowly,
And the sun's rays will warm us still
As nature prepares now to slumber
in the still of this autumn morn,
We know with the season's passing
spring will come with the new year,
And life will be reborn.
