Parm, you're disgustingly perfect. Just go away. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR> BTW: I'm sorry to hear about your recent injury, I hope all is well now. As a fellow cyclist, I can feel your pain. Stupid cars with their stupid drivers and stupid pollution.<BR><BR> Celebie! I had never read anything of yours until now. Your poem is so beautiful in its melancholy. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Though this has appeared in other threads, I would like to let my other<BR>friends see it here:<BR><BR>Well, I'm Back<BR>It's Valentine's Day in Japan, where I send this,<BR>where chocolate sales will increase as I write.<BR>Yet it's not confections that bring me here to you,<BR>for I have returned from "that movie" tonight.<BR>I wept for the partings, for death and destruction<BR>for losses and loves that emerged from the wars.<BR>I stayed in my seat from the first to the last,<BR>till the ushers tried vainly to show me the doors.<BR>I bought my friends tickets, and in true tradition,<BR>they thanked me by buying some gifts in return.<BR>I came home well-laden, with brooches and bangles <BR>and booklets with more Japanese I should learn.<BR>An elvish brooch wrapped with some roses was given<BR>to Mrs. Parm, who, by her blessings I saw,<BR>what I have yearned for, for twenty-five winters <BR>and shared with my son and a brother-in-law.<BR>Indeed, I got souvenirs, yes I bought trinkets,<BR>however, above all these memories shared,<BR>I saw, shining brightly, such legends! Such heroes!<BR>Though some died in battle, while others were spared.<BR>Today I experienced Valentine's courage,<BR>the martyr who died so that True Love might grow.<BR>All this and much more burned down deep in my spirit--<BR>and this came to be from a book and a show.<BR><BR>Bright blessings,<BR>Parm <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

<strong>A Ring Around The Sun...</strong><BR><BR>I wonder if she knows this sweet and precious thing called Love.<BR>I hope she truly feels the warmth of sunshine from above.<BR>This sun that's watching over her and trying to hang on.<BR>Even when the night arrives to push the day along.<BR><BR>This sun that faces shadows through the darkness of the clouds.<BR>Arrayed in pain from many years of fighting storming shrouds.<BR>I hope she truly knows it shines and lives to see her smile.<BR>Then would she see how radiant her light it does beguile.<BR><BR>And does she realize that rainbows color through her tears.<BR>And does she realize how much her laugh can lift its fears.<BR>And when she looks to skies above, the sun, it finds her gaze<BR>And basks within her eyes alight to set itself ablaze!<BR>

Hey Parm, how are you? <BR><BR>Ok, I know this isn't the best thread to be asking for help but I can't seem to find any at the moment. I need to write a poem for my literature class but I need some help on what I have so far...I have never been good at writing poems, and this one doesn't need to rhyme. But my poem just doesn't seem to flow right, and it isn't developed to well. (It has to be at least 15 lines) It is suppses to be reminiscent of the romantic period ie. reality, fantasy and nature. And I have to have at least two interjections in it...hence my 'oh'. Thanks a lot. Here is what I have so far:<BR><BR>Oh! What a majestic and beautiful mountain you are.<BR>But why must you hide your stony face<BR>Within the cloud's embrace?<BR> <BR>Though the world is touched by time, <BR>You stand unchanged, <BR>Outlasting us all.<BR><BR>Why must you cry,<BR>The white snow falling from your peak?<BR>You alone are unforgotten and forever will be in the hearts of many.<BR><BR>Through the long days,<BR>You stand watch over this earth-<BR>Your gaze never faltering,<BR><BR>You protect those who are weaker,<BR>Offering what little protection you can<BR>From Her hot, white face.<BR><BR>Some may shrink <BR>At your enormous size,<BR>Others will shake with anticipation. <BR><BR>Any suggestions, or critisism, is welcome- I need all the help I can get. And I am sorry for interupting your thread<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> Oh, IF anyone knows of a good thread that I could put this in for advice please let me know.<BR>

<strong>Hello, Arwenelf</strong><BR>If I can be of any help, I am honored to<BR>try.<BR>Let's see what we can do...<BR>*********<BR><BR>Oh! What a majestic and beautiful <BR>mountain you are.<BR>(But why must you )[Try: Why then]<BR>hide your stony face<BR>[deep] within the cloud's embrace?<BR>(that was nice)<BR><BR>Though the world is touched by time, <BR>You stand unchanged, <BR>Outlasting us all.<BR>(I like this, too).<BR><BR>Why must you (cry)[Try: weep]<BR>(The white snow) <BR>[Try: tears of snow] falling from your peak?<BR>[Try a new line: Do you feel forlorn <BR>so far from us all?<BR><BR>[Next stanza: Not so! Not so!<BR>You alone are unforgotten<BR>[remembered] forever (edit out: will be)<BR>in the hearts of many.<BR><BR>Through the long days,<BR>You stand (watch)[guard] over this earth-<BR>Your gaze never faltering.<BR><BR>[New stanza][I am in awe of your strength]<BR>(You protect)[Try: Protecting] those who are weaker,<BR>offering what(edit out: little) protection you can (From Her hot, white face.) [is this the<BR>sun?]<BR><BR>[New stanza, new line]<BR>Sorrow not that some may shrink [away] <BR>[Edit out: At] [from] your enormous size,<BR>others will shake with anticipation.<BR><BR>******<BR>Well, that was my initial attempt.<BR>Look through your poem and ask yourself:<BR>"What thoughts do I want to express about<BR>the mountain?"<BR><BR>Write these down: size, isolated, strength,<BR>timelessness.<BR>Find at least five of these and write<BR>three lines about each...that should give<BR>you your minimum 15 lines.<BR>Have an opening stanza introducing your<BR>subject, and a closing stanza, reflecting<BR>on what you wrote.<BR><BR>*******<BR>There are many other talented poets among<BR>us at TORC, so I can imagine why you are<BR>nervous to post your poem. Feel free to<BR>come here. I will try my best to help.<BR><BR>Write from your heart. Keep at it. My early<BR>poems were not that great, either.<BR>Come to think of it, there may be some here<BR>who do not think much of my poems now, but<BR>hopefully you have something more to think<BR>through as you look over your poem.<BR><BR>Bright blessings,<BR>Parm <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>

Parm- Thank you so much for your help! You are such a wonderful poet.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> My poem was due Tuesday and I didn't see your suggestions until today...maybe I will change some things though. Here is what my poem ended up to be (the one I turned in):<BR><BR> <em>Silent Sentinel</em><BR>Oh! What a majestic and beautiful mountain you are.<BR>But why must you hide your stony face<BR>Within the white cloud's embrace?<BR><BR>Through the long days,<BR>You stand watch over this earth,<BR>Your gaze never falters.<BR><BR>Though the world is touched by time, <BR>You stand unchanged, <BR>Outlasting us all.<BR><BR>As men gaze upon your vastness,<BR>Some may shrink with horror<BR>But others will shake with wonder<BR><BR>But why must you cry,<BR>The white snow falling from your high peaks?<BR>You alone are unforgotten and forever will be in the hearts of many.<BR><BR>You protect those who are weaker,<BR>Offering what little shelter you can<BR>From Her hot, white face.<BR><BR>Lo, Look how you shatter the forbidding darkness,<BR>Like a dagger breaks the flesh of man,<BR>So you pierce the heart of the sky.<BR><BR>The stars dance upon your head,<BR>Casting their light upon your brow-<BR>You are their stage, changing with each scene.<BR><BR>Unmarked by the passing of years, you guard our days<BR>You stand watch, a silent sentinel over our lives<BR>And keep us ever in your shadow when at last we sleep<BR>

Hullo Parm,<BR><BR>I've not posted in a thread with you since <em>that</em> wedding thread. Breezing through Torc today and I felt that I had to write something. It must be years since I've written anything.<BR><BR>Ignored<BR><BR>The brick wall stands guard, over one destitute below,<BR>Like huddled in a swaddling robe, nowhere to go.<BR>Needy eyes searching forth, hands upwards stretched,<BR>Impassive sentinel firm, "cup of tea?" request.<BR><BR>Moss grows and water drips, dry mortar holds together,<BR>Man sullen, shivers there, "oh stop this bloody weather."<BR>Wall watches the world go by, man mumbles words,<BR>Silent reply face both of them, all they deserve?<BR><BR>

of the sweet sound that rolls off our tougues that brings peace and beautful sleep<BR>that quells the dangers of the road a head and sooths the feet with long rest yet grows the golden road that lay below thy and the trees bloom of the golden leaves and red flowers that last for all hours and the green grass of great fields <BR>

I posted this poem in the forum, for general discussion, but I'd like to contribute it here. I wrote this one quite some time ago, but thought I'd share it since I've written nothing else worth sharing since then<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> <BR><BR><BR>E Disjecto Membra<BR><BR>Remember times when happiness<BR>Our dreary days did ever bless,<BR>When song and music filled our lives;<BR>Inspiring us to make and strive<BR>For things of beauty and splendor<BR>That would endure and last fore’er. <BR><BR>We sang and danced and built great things<BR>That to all mankind e’er would bring<BR>Safety and wonder, joy and bliss,<BR>So naught would ever go amiss.<BR>We reveled in Earth’s loveliness,<BR>And all her strength and great finesse.<BR><BR>And then one wicked day we woke<BR>To find that Evilness had spoke<BR>And enticed some to do His will,<BR>And many dreadful things fulfill.<BR>We could not see what lay ahead,<BR>But pictured futures dark with dread.<BR><BR>Our troops deployed, battle began,<BR>Our loyal people made their stand.<BR>We rushed onward with hateful cries;<BR>Then many fell, and many died.<BR>Retreat was sounded, and we fled,<BR>To our last haven, and left the dead.<BR><BR>The siege lasted many long years,<BR>But at long last, with prices dear,<BR>We drove them back. Our lands regained,<BR>Now all our efforts were sustained<BR>To rebuild homes and prized cities,<BR>And right the old iniquities.<BR><BR>Restored were homes, but ne’er again<BR>Would our lives ever be the same.<BR>Cities were ravaged and plundered,<BR>Our peaceful lives ripped asunder.<BR>Esto perpetua, my last ode,<BR>To that glorious realm of old.<BR> <BR>E disjecto membra, I thought,<BR>As I left that which evil wrought.<BR>I now dwell in Eternal halls,<BR>Watching what to my home befalls.<BR>Now I am gone forevermore,<BR>To lament for the great lost lore.<BR><BR>Alas for this, our fading world,<BR>That which the Enemy has hurled<BR>Through trials and tribulations dark,<BR>Where lives with sorrow have been marked.<BR>We’ve lingered here for far too long;<BR>The Earth has sung her final song.<BR>

<strong>The Quiet Stillness</strong><BR><BR>Hovering in stillness there is silence<BR>Laid to bare.<BR>Lingering in whispers..soft, it<BR>Echoes on the air.<BR>Painful is the peacefulness in<BR>Darkness, deathly calm.<BR>Sweet ectasy that has no taste <BR>Released through joyless song.<BR><BR>Bound by hushed protective bliss<BR>Soon emptiness devours.<BR>Seizing life through sunless days and<BR>Feasting on the hours.<BR>Nothing grows to spread the joy<BR>When blackness holds its reign.<BR>It thrives like poison cold and deep.<BR>One can't escape its bane.<BR><BR>There is no life for meadowlarks<BR>That sing alone on high.<BR>No journey for their flightless wings,<BR>Confined, they soon will die.<BR>Unaware, an injured lark flies off<BR>The beaten path.<BR>Guided by its loss of light. Enclosed<BR>By cruelties wrath.<BR><BR>It cannot hear the others songs that<BR>Cry a distant warning.<BR>It does not know that it is night and not<BR>The blessed morning.<BR>Soaring on and ever on, and searching<BR>Far and wide.<BR>The lark grows cold and colder still<BR>From silence deep inside.<BR><BR>Weary from its endless flight.<BR>Awash in grief and sorrow.<BR>It lifts its voice but once again<BR>To those who sing tomorrow.<BR>The melody though faint and soft<BR>Is clear for all its worth.<BR>The message tumbles from the heart. <BR><em>'Keep light and song on earth!'</em>

<strong>In Absolute Awe</strong><BR>If you could see,<BR>my ashen face,<BR>and see my slackened jaw,<BR>my eyes grown wide<BR>my breathing short,<BR>that comes from<BR>feeling awe.<BR>I gape amazed<BR>at talent here,<BR>and given with largesse,<BR>and offer thanks,<BR>though darkly late,<BR>but given <BR>nonetheless.<BR><BR>Oh hurray! for all your talented folks!<BR><BR>Bright blessings,<BR>Parm <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>
