touring the home of a long dead poet
in the corner of his dream room
i see his smile,and the walls
papered with flowers, reflect
the light in his eyes

on a small escritoire is a
manuscript of his poetry
filled with the beauty of his mind
throbbing with the beat of his heart
soon to be published

it sits next the window that looks out
on the fields of wild flowers where
a lone tomb holds his remains
with four lines inscribed on it

"here lies the bones of the bard
whose soul is now in his book
which he never knew would exist
his now famous name known to all"

etw~2008

AH!!!! so reminds me of the time we spent last winter in the hills and valleys of Dylan Thomas in Wales. To visit his home out of season and be allowed into his "private rooms" by the curator who was a personal friend of his children, was special. I just can't wait to see the new film about his mythical life, starring Kiera Knightly. There are those writers whose very essence keeps on creating and weaving through the mists of time and in the hearts and minds of all who are touched by them, well beyond the grave. Excellent!

A shame you have to die to be a somebody. That breaks my heart although I have said a thousand times, my children will read my work when I m gone and wish they had read it while I was alive so they could tell me what it meant to them. Thank you Eileen for the sad truth.

I agree with Richard. This is a wonderful tribute to the anonimity of so many famous bards that left unpublished work behind. You never know. Excellent Liz
Reviewed by Michael Guy 7/22/2008
Lovely idea but: if it 'twere Shakespeare, he wasn't exactly a poor loner; and if it were any other of a few I can think of, somebody had to know his work or it would perish. Therefore the axiom: "publish or perish" - I would have chosen a musician, but how could there be such a thing?

great example of starving artist Eileen, Van Gogh couldn't even sell a painting when he was alive, now his works are worth millions. And us poets, who knows? hugs

Crazy, isn't it: Death is a launching pad.

Reminds me of the words of Kahlil Gibran in 1924:
"And ever has it been that love
Knows not its own depth
Until the hour of separation."

Well, nobody knows me now, so maybe there's hope for me in the future. Yeah, when I won't be around to give a damn! Maybe I could fake my death. Naw. My wife wouldn't put up with that.

Guess I'll have to be content living in darkness, my only illumination bathing in the light of such as E. T. Waldron.

A truly original write, Eileen. I loved it!
Richard

An anomality to the rule, after one hundred years nothing of his has been forgotten.
Long live to the poets that inmortalize the words etching them in the heart of the readers.
