Sweet, I blame you not, for mine the fault was, had I not been made of common clay
I had climbed the higher heights unclimbed yet, seen the fuller air, the larger day.
From the wildness of my wasted passion I had struck a better,…
at least one shooting every week
congress & president mild and meek
whatever they might do or say
no blame goes to the NRA
that keeps abusing the 2nd amendment
who needs militias today?!
and thanks to…
Sonnet for Monique
Hear what a fool you’ve made of me: impelled,
I tune this corny sonnet to the chord
your silver bracelets tingled when you held
me in your arms. Encircled ears implored
for any help…
He fought with Death upon the stage of Life
teasing his great Opponent, whom he sought
on foreign battlefields, in civil strife
where people freedom's losing battles fought.
Wounded by shells and bullets, caught with ease…
In the middle
I do not
I do not
To that gaunt House of Art which lacks for naught
Of all the great things men have saved from Time,
The withered body of a girl was brought
Dead ere the world's glad youth had touched its prime,
And seen by lonely Arabs…
A shout, a cry
and than he die.
Many others looked at him
but no one else helped poor Tim.
This happened in our Germany
and the others are so free.
Sitting in peaceful places
Upon nature's natural faces
Silent sounds of the river's rushing
The wind with the trees harmoniously brushing
Quiet clouds above calmly passing by
A lake of blue and white that pleases…
a special light
is in your eyes
illuminates my soul
and makes me feel
it only shines for me
I am aware
that others, too,
feel deeply touched
by your bright radiance
I neither claim
in meadows finally released
from the cold grip of snow
spring flowers look so pleased
so happy they can grow
their leaves unfold
their shiny blossoms bring
bright colors back into our world
and make all…
it happened once
upon a time
a place with a piano
& cozy talk
they left late
tied in an amiable hug
heading for their separate quarters
the other shared…
find love come back
true soft lips miss
body wrap arms legs
Wonder what it's like to be scared every day,
Knowing war and destruction are on the way?
Not able to run and play in the park,
Never camp out in the yard after dark.
A lot of children in far off places,
I know a place where the world is still
where time and space have no hold
I know a place where my heart and
soul are one
I know a place where I rest in peace
where my body is numbed
where my eyes lie open to…
So deeply rooted, high unfolded
So straight grown and yet devoted
In every tree, there breathes life
Just go to him with all your strife
Touch and lean on this old being
Take your time and sense and see him
Upon a nice summer day,
Let’s take a look at Nature’s way.
Breath the scent of nice fresh air,
Feel the breeze within your hair.
The grass will poke between your toes,
Smell the flowers with your nose.
Can earth be Earth when all its trees are gone,
And sudsy waters have become unfit,
And poisoned life no longer greets the dawn
With raucous sounds that death has caused to quit?
Will trees no longer wave, with limbs…
How glad that everybody knows,
that Trumpelstiltskin is my name.
Als der Himmel noch blau war,
da waren die Engel noch voll,
da gab es noch keine Wolken,
und die Aussicht auf die Erde war toll,
doch dann dann wurde er verboten,
der himmlisch blaue Stoff,
das war dann der…
Oh what a wonderful day,
coming in future, not far away.
Angels are standing on this street,
when my LORD is coming, oh so sweet.
Loved ones are precious
I know this for a fact
And when you lose one
It’s like an attack
I’ve lost some loved ones
To many different things
I hate losing loved ones
But it’s a bell that has to ring
when you grow up
in a world where old is not useless
but means connected
to other times that made yours possible
then the weathered beams
of an old mountain farmer’s house
lived in for…
excuse me if this is too much
it feels like you're too hot to touch
and when you're gone it feels so rough
my body aches never has enough
my friends they think im losing it
and im honestly not doubting this
The ring is on my hand,
And the wreath is on my brow;
Satin and jewels grand
And many a rood of land,
Are all at my command,
And I am happy now.
And my lord he loves me well;
But, when first he breathed…
one day we shall recognize and see
we look at our sins and fall to our knees
A lady from Old Pasture Lane,
gained publicity and fame,
for she was an amateur sleuth,
eager to reveal the truth.
Miss Marple is astute and quirky,
clears murder cases tough and murky.
Her closest friend is…
I died one time - I ain'tgonna die no mo'.
I died one time - and I ain'tgonna die no mo'.
't was a hard time a-dyin' - that I know fo' sure.
First thing I remember - I had to sell my soul.
Yes - I remember - I had sold…
do you seriously think
you can determine your life
plan all your moves
avoid poisonous strife
reach all your goals
without devious grooves
by the time you have reached
those goals you have preached…
as a usual Saturday, a sniff of whiskey left
from the previous night -
that'll do - it's not much, but it steadies
the nerves and handshakes with ghosts
of dead writers and poets -
but then the paranoia kicks in -…
As I look to the mountains, I dream.
I look to the stars and wonder how far away they are,
and I dream.
I dream of worlds beyond where peace and love are one,
and so I dream.
If worlds like that exist and can live…
The sound of wind brushing through the trees
The smell of the wet, quenching mist filling my nostrils
Hearing the little birds chirping all around
My feet submerging into the moist, dirty ground
Leaves caught by the wind…
with all these Black Sheep
from the bottom end
of the top 1 percent
in the new government
spewing lies without shame
we will have to rename
the White House
Why do we crave so many things
though they leave us unsatisfied
and send us out again for ephemeral
seconds of vanishing gratification?
Is it an absence of essential qualities
that makes us feel unfinished?
on top of the universe
in the fourth dimension
the birth of a new solar system…
Englische Gedichte (English Poems) sind schon von daher auch für deutschsprachige Leser und Interessenten an der Literatur und den Gedanken eines bestimmten Schriftstellers interessant, weil sie die Gedichte der englischsprachigen Autorinnen und Autoren im Original und unverfälscht wiedergeben. So manche der Übersetzungen von englischen Gedichten, die man im World Wide Web finden kann, wären vielleicht nicht im Sinne des ursprünglichen Autors gewesen und sind vielmehr eine Interpretation des Ursprungstextes, als eine Übersetzung. Noch schlimmer wird es, wenn englische Gedichte einfach durch einen der zahlreichen automatischen Übersetzer "geschickt" werden.
LiteratPro ist bemüht im Falle von englischen Gedichten, bei denen eine Übersetzung angeboten wird, auf autorisierte Übersetzungen zurückzugreifen. Die Kategorie "Englische Gedichte" beschreibt ansonsten ihren Inhalt schon über den Namen: Im Kern geht es hier - ungefiltert - um Gedichte, die in der englischen Sprache geschrieben wurden.
