Three Poems [Lima; Judges and Evils Creation]
Thou knowith evil clings
But softly it darkens
O Night! Who giveth birth?
"His name has no beginning
But why?! O why?
As mighty murmurs
It's an ink-black night: no stars: no moon in sight
Invisible: people, cats, dog, birds, and rats, infinite
Rose's First Poem:
By Rosa Siluk
In Saint Paul, good judges are rare!
In due course of time
For the "Cussedest Rascals," in all the city
And so I remark,
Dennis L. Siluk is the author of 29-books, and has traveled the world 25-times around. His wife has been trying to catch up, but has only made it 10 times, and this is her first poem. I hate to see her next year, she will have me beat. http://dennissiluk.tripod.com
