Depth of Ill – Blackout Poem

 

poe

depth of ill

from childhood
my passions spring
from sorrow
my stormy life was
drawn from ev’ry
depth of ill which
stills the fountain,
the sun, its tints of
gold, pass’d me by
when heaven was
a demon in my view

A Blackout poem inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s poem “Alone”. See Below:

Alone
By Edgar Allan Poe

From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were—I have not seen
As others saw—I could not bring
My passions from a common spring
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow—I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone—
And all I lov’d—I lov’d alone—
Then—in my childhood—in the dawn
Of a most stormy lifewas drawn
From ev’ry depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still
From the torrent, or the fountain
From the red cliff the mountain—
From the sun that ‘round me roll’d
In its autumn tint of gold
From the lightning in the sky
As it pass’d me flying by
From the thunder, and the storm—
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view

42 Day 15

muted dawn and this

heaving, heavy,
wet-grey stillness

would that the rain would
come, blackening the sky
cooling us with its tears

42 Day 15 for Jane Dougherty’s Daily Poetry Challenge.


Florette #2

full-faced moon, lucent dreams
clouds race on tempest streams

~kat

A blustery nor’easter raged into town last night under the light of March’s first Full Worm Moon. The howling noise kept my dogs alert and close by on this sleepless night. This is Day 2 of this challenging poetry form inspired by Jane Dougherty, who I am convinced is a sadist or masochist, or both, for having suggested this two-lined beast. 🙂 Just kidding…all in fun Jane…you know I am always up for a challenge. 🙂
