    @magpie

    Whenever I'm waiting for the bus, I look up to make sure there aren't any birds around.
    Not because I love birds or I fear them,
    but because I envy them.
    I envy birds.
    They're free and ignorant.
    It's hard to not linger on how they only do a few things.
    Yet, when I think of fish, I pity them.
    I pity fish.
    They're trapped and stupid.
    They have only so much room to go and they only do a few things.

    That's when the contradictions come in.
    Birds and fish are practically the same.
    Sure, they do their things in different environments,
    but they're the same.

    When I'm waiting, I make sure there aren't any birds because I dislike acknowledging how hypocritical the extent of my black and white thinking can get.
    I dislike knowing that most, if not all, things are some shade of gray.
    Because then I can't tell if I'm flying out of control or drowning in misery.

    Which is basically the same thing.

    I’ll tell you how the sun rose by Emily Dickinson

    I’ll tell you how the sun rose, -
    A ribbon at a time.
    The steeples swam in amethyst,
    The news like squirrels ran.

    The hills untied their bonnets,
    The bobolinks begun.
    Then I said softly to myself,
    "That must have been the sun!"
    But how he set, I know not.
    There seemed a purple stile.
    Which little yellow boys and girls
    Were climbing all the while

    Till when they reached the other side,
    A dominie in gray
    Put gently up the evening bars,
    And led the flock away.

    Blackbird in Fulham, by PJ Kavanagh

    A John the Baptist bird which comes before
    The light, chooses an aerial
    Toothed like a garden rake, puts a prong at each shoulder,
    Opens its beak and becomes a thurifer
    Blessing dark above dank holes between the houses,
    Sleek patios or rag-and-weed-choked messes.

    Too aboriginal to notice these,
    Its concentration is on resonance
    Which excavates in sleepers memories
    Long overgrown or expensively paved-over,
    Of innocence unmawkish, love robust.
    Its sole belief, that light will come at last.
    The point is proved and, casual, it flies elsewhere
    To sing more distantly, as though its tune
    Is left behind imprinted on the air,
    Still legible, though this the second carbon.
    And puzzled wakers lie and listen hard
    To something moving in their minds' backyard.

    OK - for @EJCC:

    Canticle of the Dragon

    From Dragonlance Chronicles Volume 1: Dragons of Autumn Twilight
    Novel by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman, Poetry by Michael Williams


    Hear the sage as his song descends
    like heaven's rain or tears,
    and washes the years, the dust of the many stories
    from the High Tale of the Dragonlance.
    For in ages deep, past memory and word,
    in the first blush of the world
    When the three moons rose from the lap of the forest,
    dragons, terrible and great,
    made war on this world of Krynn.

    Yet out of the darkness of dragons,
    out of our cries for light
    in the blank face of the black moon soaring,
    a banked light flared in Solamnia,
    a knight of truth and of power,
    who called down the gods themselves
    and forged the mighty Dragonlance, piercing the soul
    of dragonkind, driving the shade of their wings
    from the brightening shores of Krynn.

    Thus Huma, Knight of Solamnia,
    Lightbringer, First Lancer,
    followed his light to the foot of the Khalkist Mountains,
    to the stone feet of the gods,
    to the crouched silence of their temple.
    He called down the Lancemakers, he took on
    their unspeakable power to crush the unspeakable evil,
    to thrust the coiling darkness
    back down the tunnel of the dragon's throat.

    Paladine, the Great God of Good,
    shone at the side of Huma,
    strengthening the lance of his strong right arm,
    and Huma, ablaze in a thousand moons,
    banished the swarm of her shrieking hosts
    back to the senseless kingdom of death, where their curses
    swooped upon nothing and nothing
    deep below the brightening land.

    Thus ended in thunder the Age of Dreams
    and began the Age of Might,
    When Istar, kingdom of light and truth, arose in the east,
    where minarets of white and gold
    spired to the sun and to the sun's glory,
    announcing the passing of evil,
    and Istar, who mothered and cradled the long summers of good,
    shone like a meteor
    in the white skies of the just.

    ode to magpie

    she used to be called hel
    but with a bell in her mind
    she realized to unwind
    she'd have be called magpie
    so she'd have a chance to fly.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Really popular/well known/probably overly done poem but yeah. The first thing I thought of.

    Caged Bird
    By Maya Angelou
    A free bird leaps
    on the back of the wind
    and floats downstream
    till the current ends
    and dips his wing
    in the orange sun rays
    and dares to claim the sky.

    But a bird that stalks
    down his narrow cage
    can seldom see through
    his bars of rage
    his wings are clipped and
    his feet are tied
    so he opens his throat to sing.

    The caged bird sings
    with a fearful trill
    of things unknown
    but longed for still
    and his tune is heard
    on the distant hill
    for the caged bird
    sings of freedom.

    The free bird thinks of another breeze
    and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
    and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn
    and he names the sky his own

    But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
    his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
    his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
    so he opens his throat to sing.

    The caged bird sings
    with a fearful trill
    of things unknown
    but longed for still
    and his tune is heard
    on the distant hill
    for the caged bird
    sings of freedom.

    Oh thats for magpie. It would work for prpl too though I think- you can skip me though for sure.

    @Eskimo2

    And would it have been worth it, after all,
    After the cups, the marmalade, the tea,
    Among the porcelain, among some talk of you and me,
    Would it have been worth while,
    To have bitten off the matter with a smile,
    To have squeezed the universe into a ball
    To roll it towards some overwhelming question,
    To say: “I am Lazarus, come from the dead,
    Come back to tell you all, I shall tell you all”—
    If one, settling a pillow by her head
    Should say: “That is not what I meant at all;
    That is not it, at all.”

    To the Looking-Glass world it was Alice that said
    “I’ve a sceptre in hand, I’ve a crown on my head.
    Let the Looking-Glass creatures, whatever they be
    Come dine with the Red Queen, the White Queen and Me!

    “Then fill up the glasses as quick as you can,
    And sprinkle the table with buttons and bran:
    Put cats in the coffee, and mice in the tea–
    And welcome Queen Alice with thirty-times-three!”

    O Looking-Glass creatures,” quoth Alice, “draw near!
    ‘Tis and honour to see me, a favour to ear:
    ‘Tis a privilege high to have dinner and tea
    Along with the Red Queen, the White Queen, and Me!”

    Then fill up the glasses with treacle and ink,
    Or anything else that is pleasant to drink:
    Mix sand with the cider, and wool with the wine–
    And welcome Queen Alice with ninety-times-nine!

    Tickle tickle! You like pickles?

    Oh there you go! Peek a boo!

    Now get back under there you dirty hoe.
