PUBLISHED POEM

February 5, 2011 at 7:21 pm 3 comments

As promised, I’m going to share more of my published poems with you. These poems were published in very small anthologies from 1973 – 1976.

What follows is my first published poem, published by The Shore Publishing Co. in their anthology, Shore Poetry Anthology, in 1973.

THE WANDERER

Hair matted and long
Face overgrown with mustache and beard
He walks down the city streets alone
A broken man,
He stumbles about in the dead of night
With only a ragged coat to keep out the cold
And cheap wine his only refuge.
Perhaps he once dreamt
A dreamer of dreams
And a victim of fate,
For the greatest and lowliest man are of the same stock
Dreamers all,
The only difference being God’s frown
Or smile.

God smiled on me when I met my wife, Joni.

    A vivid picture painted with these words…a sight often seen along the city streets.
