    canto 'o buried tales

    When June comes in with mornings bright,
    And beds are showered with early light,
    Then dreams sit near the waking eye,
    And flights of fancy take to sky.

    Then faces known and faces lost,
    People loved and people crossed,
    Parade across our REMing state,
    Through Worlds and places we create.

    Roads we trod and those not taken,
    Lovers we knew and those forsaken,
    The child we held is ours once more,
    Our mother is standing at the door

    From shadows deep and dark and dire,
    Raised up from our subconscious mire,
    Our deepest fears find face and form,
    In shadowy figures intent on harm.

    But morning swallows twittering high,
    Return the Self behind the eye,
    Reality comes in cascading,
    And dreams are just an echo fading.

    He was only a demon who tried to be good,
    You might even say he was misunderstood.

    At his trial he confessed to helping the damned,
    Cooling the fires and holding their hand.

    The devil summed up, assessing his crime
    (The devil, like all of us, loves to make rhyme.)

    "For behavior unbecoming of a demon in my view,
    I've no choice but to throw the book at you."

    You're banished from all of my infernal realm,
    So hand back your spear and diabolical helm.

    You won't be needing them where you're going, m' lad,
    And you wont get them back till you learn to be bad."

    Then he sipped some brimstone from a skull bone cup.
    And nodded to the constable and said "Take him up."

    The demon hung his head and shed a hot tear,
    Behind him The Heavenly stairs did appear.

    And on his way up he turns and he says,
    "I'll miss the old place till the end of all days."

    Merde! !Sacre blue! Et mon dieu!
    Mon French je avez perdu,
    Mon mots du amour,
    S'est tres tres poor,
    So I'll stay in my local purlieu.

    Aye, the past and the future aint set,
    For the future aint happened yet,
    The past is all gone,
    And often told wrong,
    And some parts we remember to forget.

    LOL I understand.
    In your French poem I said that what you wrote was good and that I enjoyed it.
    'J'ai aime' means I liked.
    I wrote back in French because I was inspired by your French piece. I hope you did not think being mean sorry that was not the case.

    I like your limerick (the one in English, I mean.)
    Not to nag, but are you going to take a stab at a couple of double dactyls? Coming from you, I bet that they'd be hysterical.

    I don't think you have a mean bone in your body. Put your poem back up and I'll try to translate - was it about Madam Curie?

    No pressure then!
    I've had a go at a couple, but they are too political for here - about Syria and Obama and bombs. (also not up to standard). It is a form that seems to seduce me towards the dark-side.

    If Music is the Food


    Madrigals sung in June,
    Are strawberries and cream,
    Jazz is just a piece of cake,
    And punk's a plate of beans,
    Classical’s a slice of toast,
    Vivaldi is the jam,
    Rock and Roll's a hamburger,
    And Country is roast lamb.
    But love has its own melodies
    Of passion and romances,
    It feeds on touch and smiles and hope,
    And surreptitious glances.

    Here is a double dactyl (I think!), I toned it down a bit for on here. I can't seem to wrest them from a political slant. I

    Bunglely Bomberly
    Assad, sad day,
    Death in Damascus
    Aint life a gas.

    Sound biting Somberly,
    Obama et al,
    Dearth in the UN,
    We'll let this one pass.
