The Terrace

Now the curtain is raised On these days And memory rolls back Though dark, silent waves And the night is so dark It’s so warm and so black Like the lights of the terrace Reflected In so many eyes And this is the last dance Of a lifetime The world changes tomorrow For good, in…

Malefica

Beware the unsavoury grief of the serpent Eschew her feeble heart, her juices, her tongue Thou wouldst follow a siren’s voice through a sea of caustic Absinthe And with malicious lust inflamed, thou shalt fail, and writhe in hate Mala ergo mulier ex natura – The female is bitterer than death! An generatiuam potentiam seu…

A magical House

Everyone you’ve ever known counts on you, Waits for you, To come through. Don’t you know that you’re gonna break through? And everywhere you came and left, You came in the name of love and, Left a wake of happiness and tenderness, And sweet conflict, sweet conflict. You hang around, You come on down, You…

Four little speckled frogs Sat on a speckled log Eating some most delicious bugs. YUM! YUM! One jumped into…

Breeze off the pond

Like breeze off the pond Or trees on the lawn Wind is always there, they’re saying it’s just air Let it blow through you Don’t let it move you Grass is greenest when you’re here with me, okay, mmm If what they got is all good then why would they trade No we are in…
