Gypsy Love Song

Release the Autumn Gypsy,
O golden harvest moon
She longs to paint the season,
Rich in festive ornate hues
Jack Frost comes to play for her,
a cheery little tune
and dance with Autumn Gypsy,
beneath the harvest moon

"Tears, Idle Tears"

~Alfred Lord Tennyson

Tears, idle tears, I know not what they mean,
Tears from the depth of some divine despair
Rise in the heart, and gather in the eyes,
In looking on the happy autumn-fields,
And thinking of the days that are no more.

Fresh as the first beam glittering on a sail,
That brings our friends up from the underworld,
Sad as the last which reddens over one
That sinks with all we love below the verge;
So sad, so fresh, the days that are no more.

Ah, sad and strange as in dark summer dawns
The earliest pipe of half-awakened birds
To dying ears, when unto dying eyes
The casement slowly grows a glimmering square;
So sad, so strange, the days that are no more.

Dear as remembered kisses after death,
And sweet as those by hopeless fancy feigned
On lips that are for others; deep as love,
Deep as first love, and wild with all regret;
O Death in Life, the days that are no more!

We lack, yet cannot fix upon the lack:
Not this, nor that; yet somewhat, certainly.
We see the things we do not yearn to see.

All summer long, I waited for the night
to drive out in the unexpected gold
of beech woods, and those lighted homesteads, set
like kindling in the crease-lines of the dark,

catching a glimpse, from the road, of huddled dogs
and sleepless cattle, mustered in a yard
as one flesh, heads
like lanterns, swaying, full of muddled light;

light from the houses television blue,
a constant flicker, like the run of thought
that keeps us from ourselves, although it seems
to kindle us, and make us plausible,

creatures of habit, ready to click
into motion. All summer long,
I knew it had something to do
with looking again, how something behind the light

had gone unnoticed; how the bloom on things
is always visible, a muddled patina
of age and colour, twinned with light or shade
and hiding the source of itself, in its drowned familiar.

See –
a green breast
in a green field,
aureole sandy-rimmed,
the nipple leaking a pale trail
to hidden chambers where,
on dank dark walls,
the straight-branched runes
of intrepid Vikings
recorded births and deaths,
the passing of days;
inscribed their conquests;
totted up the loot;
revealed, in this treeless place,
a month's mind
for the forests and fjords of home;
lamented the abandonment
of sweethearts
and family
for so much squalling wildness
where, when
the dragon boats moved on,
their tongue
took root and sprouted
from invaded soil
green words for
Father, Daughter, Bread.

Vale Robin.......

If you need the reminder that you’re not alone, this is it.

You aren’t.

Depression is a cruel liar.

You are not alone. We all have our battles that we fight every day.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute.

We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life.

But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

To quote from Whitman,“O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here – that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse.

What will your verse be?

Rest in Peace, Robin.

Thank you for sharing your light and love with the world.

We won’t forget you.

Often you and I don't see eye to eye..
but amazing, isn't it,
how the passing of a great character and talent,
someone so beloved, can make us stop and ponder....

We .. albeit on opposite sides of the world
all shared the rich fruits of what he had to offer,
his versatility... his laughter..
and in that way we are all linked..

he brought before us afresh how fragile and short
life is.. and showed us how it takes but a somber moment
to make the laughing cease..

Yours> above is a very fine and worthy tribute to
the great man.

Peace .........
