PUBLISHED POEMS

My reluctant readers,

As promised, here is the first of my ancient published poems. This piece was published in The Clover Collection of Verse, 1976.

This poem has the distinction of being the only work for which I earned money. Not here, but published in another poetry periodical, someone liked the poem and sent me a dollar. Somewhere in our attic storage area, along with over twenty years of accumulated ‘stuff’ that dollar resides. It keeps company with a mound of rejection letters.

I hope you enjoy this effort of my ‘relative youth’.

THE WHEAT FIELD REVIELED

Friendless you toiled with palette and brush,
Forlorn amidst wheat fields with only mad rush
Of flying crows to mark the day,
Crossed paths unite yet yield no safe way,
Fulfillment pursued beneath sorrowful skies
Painting with troubled soul that once cries
Out for love yet finds only torment,
Thus your life spent.
Tramping through fields of cypress and corn
With stars and suns swirled in a morn,
Hatband-held candles yield flickering light
Sustaining your soul one last starry night,
Rooks swirled in violet a soul hungers still,
Standing alone – the wheat field revielded.

      Thanks once again for your comment on my work.  There are twenty or more poems I’ll post while I’m trying to publish my novel.  Many of them demonstrate why I’m writing horror and science fiction now.

                                                                                                             Take care,

                                                                                                              Walt Trizna
