Re: Owls and Fire



My poem inspired by Twin Peaks

Re: Red Red Rose



Inspiration - "Red Red Rose" by Robert Burns

O my Luve is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.

So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry.

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only luve!
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my luve,
Though it were ten thousand mile.

Re: Kings and Knaves



Inspiration- "If" by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Re: JabberWookie



Jabberwookie

`Twas brillig, and the slithy hutt
Did loaf and grumble in its lair:
All mimsy were the tribe of Fett,
And the womp rats ensnare.

"Beware the Jabberwook, my son!
The mane that waves, the height that stoops!
Beware the Sarlacc pit, and shun
The fumious bantha poop!"

He took his saber blade in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
Once rested uncle in tauntaun corpse,
He sat awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwook, with eyes aghast,
Came whiffling through Starkiller wood,
And trilled as it passed!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The saber blade went snicker-snack!
He cut his dad, and things got sad
He went galumphing back.

"And, has thou seen the Jabberwook?
Flee his arms, you darkside bane!
O crapjous day! Boohoo! No way!"
He chortled in his pain.

`Twas brillig, and the slithy hutt
Did loaf and grumble in its lair;
All mimsy were the tribe of Fett,
And the womp rats ensnare.

Re: Burning Tyger



Here's Blake's full poem:

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp,
Dare its deadly terrors clasp!

When the stars threw down their spears
And water'd heaven with their tears:
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger Tyger burning bright,
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

Re: 'HorseC' Speed of Light



Relativity.

There was a young lady named Bright
Whose speed was far faster than light;
She set out one day
In a relative way
And returned on the previous night.
