Funny Short Poems - 839

Father Poems : Father by Philip Levine

The long lines of diesels
groan toward evening
carrying off the breath
of the living.
The face of your house
is black,
it is your face, black
and fire bombed
in the first street wars,
a black tooth planted in the earth
of Michigan
and bearing nothing,
and the earth is black,
sick on used oils.

Did you look for me in that house
behind the sofa
where I had to be?
in the basement where the shirts
yellowed on hangers?
in the bedroom
where a woman lay her face
on a locked chest?
I waited
at windows the rain streaked
and no one told me.

I found you later
face torn
from The History of Siege,
eyes turned to a public wall
and gone
before I turned back, mouth
in mine and gone.
I found you whole
toward the autumn of my 43rd year
in this chair beside
a masonjar of dried zinnias
and I turned away.

I find you
in these tears, few,
useless and here at last.

Don't come back.

Poem : The curl of the ribbon by Raymond A. Foss


leaves of the reeds, the grasses
paint peeling on the wet clapboards
like the curl of the flat ribbon
pulled by the blade of scissors
wrapping a package in gold
moving in the autumn breeze
bathed in a puddle of light
grasses above the maple leaves
calling my eyes, in delight

while walking to the post office,
below the wall, 6 Glass Street,
Suncook, NH,

Poem : The Hills in Purple syllables by Emily Dickinson

The Hills in Purple syllables
The Day's Adventures tell
To little Groups of Continents
Just going Home from School.

Poem : A Tulip Spade by Raymond A. Foss

Ace of spades,
in living flesh,
silken skin
of the shy tulip
Petals praying
clasped together
for the warming rays
before unfurling,
spreading open
in the morning sun
Now a nascent bloom
pensive and reluctant
ramrod straight
in the morning air
warming of the dew melt
awaiting the bursting
into full flower
