key of B

Write for me a poem

tell me no lies

make me the victor

no more in disguise

I’ll ride a horse

you will live by a stream

I’ll always awaken

you in my dreams

Write for me a poem

tell me no lies

make me the victor

not needing disguise

one night beneath the moon

we  will meet in a kiss

in my strong embrace

you’ll no longer miss

Write for me a poem

tell me no lies

make me the victor

tear away all disguise

no end to this story

though you walk from my sight

no place for true  lovers

it was only one night

Write for me a poem

tell me no lies

make me the victor

put me back  in disguise

Ballad: A typical ballad is a plot-driven song, with one or more characters hurriedly unfurling events leading to a dramatic conclusion. At best, a ballad does not tell the reader what’s happening, but rather shows the reader what’s happening, describing each crucial moment in the trail of events. To convey that sense of emotional urgency, the ballad is often constructed in quatrain stanzas, each line containing as few as three or four stresses and rhyming either the second and fourth lines, or all alternating lines.

 ”What’s this, Aurora Leigh,

You write so of the poets and not laugh?

Those virtuous liars, dreamers after dark,
Exaggerators of the sun and moon,
And soothsayers in a tea-cup? I write so
Of the only truth-tellers, now left to God,—
The only speakers of essential truth,
Opposed to relative, comparative,
And temporal truths;…
The only teachers who instruct mankind,
From just a shadow on a charnel-wall.”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861), British poet. Aurora Leigh, bk.1, l. 853-64 (1857).

and so are poets virtuous liars, dreamers after dark, soothsayers in a tea-cup?

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
