Of a liveable world
Once meant for all,
What can remain
Of yet to fall,
With man’s excesses
And phlegmatic legacy
Suffers the child,
Who now has need
As wary he be
Of human appetite,
The child’s survival!
This flows so well with your last one. Lovely.
Thank you Paulette. For what it’s worth, this poem and the previous one, plus quite a few others of my recent posted poems will appear in the 2nd edition of my 2nd book, “Matters” ~ of body and soul ~, which I’ve just completed, and soon to be in print. Soon being a month or so.
Let me know when it’s in print and I’ll announce it at my site and if you’d like we could sample a poem. It’ll be a great collection.
Good day to you,
That’s wonderful Paulette! I will definitely let you know as soon as this 2nd edition of “Matters” ~ body and soul ~ goes to print. I will also send you a copy by mail, and yes of course sampling a poem with its announcement is a great idea. I am so very touched by your care and generosity, as is Marianne, that I will will never be able to thank you enough.
And a very good day to you, dear friend. Jean-Jacques
P.S. the post I reblogged yesterday just made international eNews! It changes daily so hope you get to see this today. Kerry Dwyer is an author friend of mine, who lives in France. Her paper picks up some of my blog things. Bravo!
Oh my, this is too much, but absolutely terrific, and all thanks to you, cher ami! And yes of course we did see Kerry Dwyer’s Daily. The Bravo goes to you, because without your generous care and interest, this would not have happened. Apart from these inadequate words, I am speechless. Thank you again Paulette. Jean-Jacques
