Where Angels Trod A Poem I was inspired to write by a Painting of the Virgin Mother in my grandparents' home. The Work of Art has transfixed me since I was a young child, and visiting it's Home once again last week I decided to take it to the Pen and Ink.
Poetry: Religion, K+, English, Poetry & Spiritual, words: 277, 7/8/2022
The Defense of Kerak On November 25th, 1177, King Baldwin IV of Jerusalem led a massively-outnumbered Crusader Army to Victory against Saladin and the Ayyubid Sultanate at the Battle of Montgisard. Here is a Poem of mine about the King's private Doubts leading up to this Holy Event.

Song of the Merry Men A Poem of mine regarding the Mythical Folk Hero of Nottingham's well-hid Sherwood Forest: Robin Hood. Or, more specifically in this case, the band of champion-brigands with whom he traveled, or so the Legends go. It is Styled as a flowery Folk-Song, and Written as a Poem.

Poetry: Politics, T, English, Poetry & Romance, words: 317, 7/7/2022
The Armory A longer poem on the relationship between war and humankind. This is not an anti-war poem, nor is it a work pushing for war. It's just... about it; how we are drawn to it, even.
Poetry: War, T, English, Poetry & Spiritual, words: 525, favs: 1, follows: 1, 6/23/2022
The Poet's Curse A poem I wrote about poetry. More particularly, it is a poem about creative obsession, and the immense toll such devotion to the pen can take on the more measure-able successes in life... the material poverty and loneliness that comes with spiritual enlightenment and creative talent.
Poetry: Fantasy, T, English, Poetry & Romance, words: 84, 6/23/2022
Libertarian Hymn A lengthier piece of mine; written as a semi-spiritual, semi-political Devotional Ode to Liberty Herself.
Poetry: Religion, T, English, Poetry & Spiritual, words: 928, 6/20/2022
A Spectre of Shadow This is my attempt at continuing the Macabre and fantastical Literary Tradition of H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allen Poe and the like... Intended to instill cold chills on the cheek and goosebumps on the neck, and not necessarily to opine upon the profound.
Poetry: Fantasy, T, English, Poetry & Horror, words: 127, 6/20/2022
Sunrise A very short Poem detailing and glorifying a morning's Sunrise: A simple concept, yet... Timeless, and ever-more-beautiful.
Poetry: Nature, K, English, Poetry & Romance, words: 132, 6/20/2022
So Always to Tyrants Intended in part as a condemning sentence on the monstrous infant "holiday" of "Juneteenth", a date held up as celebratory of the abolition of American slavery, a sentiment beyond noble. Yet, the very brand being propagated employs a Marxist / Communist fist and a Cross of Nero juxtaposed as it's logo. Such bold-faced trickery has always been the way of Tyrants and Demagogues.
Poetry: Politics, T, English, Poetry & Drama, words: 210, 6/20/2022
Lullaby to a Southern Child A poem of mine focused on the fierce cultural independence and rich Identitarian history of my very own Homeland: the American Southeast. It must be noted that a much lengthier work of mine exists elsewhere which tries a similar theme. This other work is called "The Dixiad", and although it remains incomplete at this hour, this shorter poem cannot be fully understood without it.
Poetry: Nature, K+, English, Poetry & Family, words: 262, 6/20/2022
Song of Three Rivers This work is a heartfelt love-song to the mightiest of the broad Western rivers: The wide Mississippi River, the ever-contended Rio Grande... And the deep, Canyon-graced Colorado current. May all three of these wondrous Works of God forever flow across the Continent in joyous Earthly Harmony.
Poetry: Nature, K+, English, Poetry & Western, words: 334, 6/20/2022
Letter to a Mosquito Upon re-reading a very old and whimsical Poem by the Scottish bard, Robert Burns, I was inspired to pen this trivial but witty thing: an address of self-less and sympathetic gratitude to an often-disease-ridden airborne Insectoid parasite of the Tropics of the World.
Poetry: Nature, K, English, Poetry & Humor, words: 357, 6/19/2022
1 Credo As "If" is to Rudyard Kipling, and as "Invictus" is to William Ernest Henley: this piece of my own, is to my literary repertoire. I believe this to be my masterwork, so far, perhaps followed closely by my as-of-yet-unfinished American epic: "The Dixiad". Now, it is up to me, my pen... and time itself... to outdo it!
Poetry: Life, K, English, Poetry & Hurt/Comfort, words: 383, 6/19/2022
A Medieval Wood The other night, I thought: "I have been taking to the pen quite often, as of late; still, I have not written a poem purely and solely pontificating on the natural world." I then promptly attempted such a simple task: and failed. Here is the otherwise-successful result.
Poetry: Nature, K, English, Poetry & Fantasy, words: 262, 6/19/2022
1 Patton's End General George S. Patton is regarded by most of the world as an American hero, by many Americans as a brave martyr, and by some bitter folk: as a cruel and overbearing conqueror; yet, few on Earth know that he was also an accomplished poet.
Poetry: War, T, English, Poetry & Mystery, words: 477, 6/19/2022
The Lay of Blackbeard Sea shanties and the ballads of maritime piracy amongst them have been springing up from covered galleys since the days of the Greek Trireme. Here is my attempt at fusing the classical Victorian literary cadence with the waltz-like structure of a shanty. The theme tried: Privateer-Captain Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard, terror of the Atlantic.
