Rhin Courtyard Lullaby

Wherein the deep night sky,
the stars lie in its embrace.
The courtyard still in its sleep,
and peace comes over your face.

'Come to me' it sings.
'Hear the pulse of the land,
the ocean's rhythms pull,
to hold your heart in its hand.'

And when the wind draws strong,
across the cypress trees.
The nightbirds cease their songs,
so gathers memories.

Last night you spoke of a dream,
where forests stretched to the east.
And each bird sang it's song,
a unicorn joined in a feast.

And in a corner stood,
a pomegranate tree.
With wild flowers there,
no mortal eye could see.

Yet still some mystery befalls,
sure as the cock crows at morn.
The world in stillness keeps,
The secret of babes to be born.

I heard an old voice say,
'Don't go far from the land.
The seasons have their way,
no mortal can understand.'

monadh the sound
of the wind in the trees
unhinged loreena is wonderful

the sun coming up on my
drunken eyes
i would love more than anything to
love you
the pain rising upon my
small mind
i would love more than anything to
be with you
don't you see
all i want is to love you
why is that you are blind
to the people that love you right
under your nose?
i would hold you
to wait and see what grows
love you more than anything
never used to cry in my sleep
Dafremen I prefer something less "10-year-old-girl"ish. Something like:

Ode to Brewskis by Roger Dafremen
Often in the holds of time
Lies hidden through the years
A bitter sort of mellow rhyme
Of bitter mellow beers

Sing a distant lullaby
To quench insistent thirst
Watch as bottles flutter by
More beers follow the first

Golden sparkling misty brew
Sore sight to misty eyes
Heal the soul and soon renew
Insistent lullabies

or maybe:

No Curtain Call by Roger Dafremen

Not once did I among the few
Call after you and hope to die
To tumbled echoes rattling
Along the ragged edge of sanity

No band played on for you and I
No credits rolled to our demise
No clever sense of irony
Did lend to our finality

Sweet, sweet and blissful calm
Whose waves wash to serenity
And vanity is pushed away
Instead deep insecurity

Grim fears of hope of saving fate
Of twisted once-upon-a-times
Which menace my dementia
This oft sought melancholy

Now off with you, I did not call
I do not wait, nor do we all
Begone, farewell go to what awaits
Fade into your happily-ever-after.

or perhaps:

Final Rest by Roger Dafremen

Into the gray and the pain passed away
While the darkness around stole the dread.

Into the still as behind me the shrill
Cries of grief became silence instead.

Into the light which surrounded by night
Drew me closer as moth to a flame.

Into the calm a soul soothing balm
On through peace and through more of the same.

Into the new and the unknown I flew
Apprehension I knew but felt less.

Into this place into death's sweet embrace
Into knowing at last final rest.
Dafremen So...any other Roger Dafremen fans out there?

I've got all of his stuff.
Dafremen A NEW POEM...woohoo!

One Look At You by Roger Dafremen

Turned my head to look at you
Perhaps to pry a smile or two
From this oft-stoney heart

Turned my heart to look at you
And warm and longing through and through
Like passion's desire on Ritalin

Turned way, can't look at you
Tempting tempestuous love-shrouded torture
Lurking pain waiting to pounce and devour my dignity, my soul

Turned for one last look at you
Perhaps to pry a smile or two
From this oft-lonely heart.
me open her eyes
cause her to fall in love with me
help me to speak
bless me with words that she will feel
oh let it rain
droplets of sunshine in her life
give her the world
but let it be me she longs to hold
i cant wait(i wont wait)
cause tomorrows too late
and i need her right now in my life

all that im praying for is my love finds you like a lullaby
finds you in the night, and sings you to sleep
all that im praying for is my love finds you like a lullaby,
and sings you to sleep, ill wake with you

rewind the days to when she first laid eyes on me
ignite the fire, let it burn uncontrolably
oh im in love, ive never felt this way before
make her feel the same, and i will ask of you no more

cause tomorrows too late, and i need her right now in my life

girl_jane I could fall asleep lying on your back with my ear to your heartbeat. 030106
disintegrating bird and i know
that in the morning
i will wake up
in the shivering cold

and the spider-man is always hungry
just a messenger Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
Smiles await you when you rise,
Sleep, pretty baby, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby.

Cares you know not, therefore sleep,
While over you a watch I'll keep.
Sleep pretty darling, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby.
megan arm around your neck, tangled bodies, whispered
of words left unsaid
and thoughts sent
into the unknown
tingling touch, pausing to grasp shoulders
and minds
and hearts
darkness portrayed cold,
unwanting, undeserving,
to witness such miracles.
but wrapping itself around us,
it has allowed us to
truely live.
sleep comes readily,
in the safety of your arms.
Freak Lullaby of a serial killer

Sinking in your silver skys
You feed off fear, absorb the cries
Blackened dreams of broken lives
These girls are daughters, mothers, wives
Blood red screams embrace the mind
Battered bodies left to find
Deep blue coulds of sickened bliss
Roll upon this one last kiss
Floating on magenta high
Innocence taken, left to die
Purple echoes seem to soar
As you want, you crave for more
But climb down off your golden moon
Run to shadows, for day breaks soon
Ter Sing to me this lullaby
Soothe the pain so I can die
celestias shadow why in god's name would he be named OYSTER???? 040113

Death of a Rose Lay your sleeping head, my love,
Human on my faithless arm;
Time and fevers burn away
Individual beauty from
Thoughtful children, and the grave
Proves the child ephemeral:
But in my arms till break of day
let the living creature lie,
Mortal, guilty, but to me
The entirely beautiful.

Soul and body have no bounds:
To lovers as they lie upon
Her tolerant enchanted slope
In their ordinary swoon,
Grave the vision Venus sends
Of supernatural sympathy,
Universal love and hope:
While an abstract insight wakes
Among the glaciers and the rocks
The hermit's sensual ecstasy.

Certainty, fidelity
On the stroke of midnight pass
Like vibrations of a bell
And fashionable madmen raise
Their pedantic boring cry;
Every farthing of the cost,
All the dreaded cards foretell,
Shall be paid, but from this night
Not a whisper, not a thought,
Not a kiss nor look be lost.

Beauty, midnight, vision dies:
Let the winds of dawn that blow
Softly round your dreaming head
Such a day of sweetness show
Eye and knocking heart may bless,
Find the mortal world enough;
Noons of dryness see you fed
By the involuntary powers,
Nights of insult let you pass
Watched by every human love.

W.H. Auden (1907 - 1973)

:-P um...Freak is a she and just saw a poem she though was awesome and posted it...woopty shit...she couldn't take it off here even if she wanted too.

If only we could erase our blathers...what a world that would be
daxle My arsenal of lullabies is borked. I realize now that my mom almost never sang a whole song. I know all these parts of songs she used to sing. And I know all these happy Jesus songs from the last school I taught at. And I know all these angsty rock songs. And finally some songs in Spanish from elementary school.
So I don't know one single decent lullaby
The audience is pretty forgiving, though.
Skalar rolls off the tongue, like petals of a flower unfurling to the warmth of the morning sun. 100326
