Successes – Two Poems -Early Poetry – October 11, 2015

I’ve had a lot of successes in life but the ones I wanted to write about where poems that came out successfully from my “earlier” writing days …


Making Dandelion Wine –  Quatrain Fairy Poem –  April 10, 2014

Let’s make some dandelion wine,
Mixed with starlight and moonshine,
Full of hopes and wishes come true,
Made from our love, for I love you.

Mix the flowers with sweet honey,
(On a special day, warm and sunny)
Spring water from a wishing well
And our story, wrapped up in a tale.

Stir the flowers, honey and water …
Then place the mix on a Fairy alter
Let it sit for just a week or maybe two
Thinking of our love so true.

Put the mix inside a barrel …
And sing an ancient summer carol,
Let the wine age in peaceful times …
Thinking of some loving rhymes.

And when the spring has gone away
As we sit on the grass one summer day,
You’ll drink to me as I drink to you
Then we’ll make love under the sky so blue.

Wish not upon stars or fairy dust
Wish if wish you really must,
Upon our special dandelion wine …
Made with love and soft moonshine.

Decadent Kitty – Shape Poem – April 8, 2014

Decadent Kitty – Shape Poem (Fish)

Decadent kitty
let me sing to you a ditty
of fishes
in dishes
and grapes
on the drapes…
Sweet little lovey
peering at the pigeon covey
wondering why the old folks
(pulling on their tokes)
forgot your kibble
(to nibble)

I’m putting my old NaPoWriMo poems from 2014 onto a single page (editing them and making the blog post private … I consider these two poems a success for two reasons:

  1. I didn’t have to edit them – they read well as is
  2. I actually had fun reading them.
