ANNIVERSARY
(...For Barbara Davis)
By Nina Cassian

I love you with the syllables I learned
From Shakespeare’s sonnets, burning, never burned.

Love you with the everlasting sounds
Of memory, your ups and downs
And calm and frenzy, ecsrasy and grief.

I love your life as much as I believe
In elements, in islands under spell,
In howling oceans, magic dew...

When once you called me Prospero, you knew
That I am Caliban as well.

For Celebrating Grand Parent’s day here is a nice poetry by Bridget Brown
This is a poem for my grandmother who has been there for me through thick and thin Kathleen Brown – Bridget Brown

Her

Her smile
Her laugh
Are full and rich

Her voice
Her touch
Are soothing and gentle

Her thought
Her feelings
Mean everything

When I’ve got nobody

manicddaily said...

So sorry Shashi--my first link is just visual, and while a bit summer vacationy and cute, it is not the link I meant to post. It's just a picture--so sorry, don't know how to remove. The second link is grandmother poem.

Kay said...

Thank you so much for the wonderful invitation! It is my pleasure to be a part. Yours truly, Lady Kay

Happy anniverary...hope there are many more...it was poetry potluck which helped me keep up verses even when stuck in a rut and the readers that followed is an added bonus. :)

Teresa Marie said...

Sorry guys, I messed up one of my entries again. If you go to number 110, Terri, and remove that one, I reposted it by the title instead. My deepest apologies. :(

roughwaterjohn said...

Great prompt. I submitted two pieces, the first one I recently wrote from a very early memory. The second was simply my mind wandering around on vacation, while my body was trying to work.

Andy said...

Congratulations Jingle Poetry Community!

Mine's not on theme, but a new one all the same.

Have a great week everyone!

ccchampagne said...

Better late than never, right? I found it extremely difficult to do poetry about my grandparents (though I have written plenty of longer scribbles about them)... Thank you, as always for this cozy little picnic among the gooseberry bushes!

Happy Anniversary and may your have many, many more.
Namaste,
Isadora

chromapoesy.com said...

I linked a poem that is a tribute to my Grandmother. Happy Anniversary!

The Gooseberry Garden said...

Talented poets,

what a thrill to see you in.

Have fun!

The Cello Strings said...

shared one on summer vacation,

hope that you enjoy it.

Shashi said...

Ok finally could post my poetry with the theme ... along with a very powerful poetry from Alfred, Lord Tennyson at the Death Anniversary of his great friend Arthur Hallam... called "In Memoriam A H H" in 1849, which was originally titled "Way of Soul".

Its a very powerful poem which was also a great favourite of Queen Victoria, who found it a source of solace after the death of Prince Albert in 1861: "Next to the Bible, In Memoriam is my comfort."

Hope you like my Haiku and my verse "In Memories" and look forward to reading yours this weekend.

hi every one how is life at your end? I am keeping quite ill, but that never stops me from visiting the garden where verses are exchanged and nurtured so well.
