since we’re on that topic…

I figured since I wrote a poem about me writing poems in high school I would post one that I enjoyed. Here you go…

Samuel J and Annie
A sign on one of the lazy branches warns
Slow 15/km
As if not to disturb the peace
of people dead and gone
One grave reads
Southern Samuel J and Annie
The sermon of living birds plays
a toll on my mind
The music these poets bellow for
the dancers is enchanting
A tree creates a canopy for
the two lovers to lie under
Had they seen this place before?
A blanket of nature covers them,
keeps them,
protects them from the harshness of
the real world
They become one through the love they had
As if never to leave they embrace
each other for all of eternity
in a place not half as forgotten as this
The watercolour flowers around them only
adds beauty to their bed
I wonder,
Had they seen this place before?
