Summer at Seventeen

Okay I'm going to post some of my old poems. I'm not really into poetry but I think these ones turned out okay.


This is not the staff the poem was originally about but it was a good one.


Summer at Seventeen




Seven Strong Soldiers on a

Blue Battle Field

Sun so Strong it Sears Spirit

Burns Bodies Bronze

Shines on Sails

Sparks on Spray

So Much Summer

Endless

For One Brief Moment,

Endless


Brothers Burned Brown

Sea is a Sister

Brimming Beauty

Bare feet, Built Bodies

Barely Boys

Men

For one Endless Summer,

Men


Sweet sugar in the air

Citrus, Light, Intense endless skies

Tangible leisure

Invigorating purpose


A long blue water, a Weathered dock

Call of wild birds, Birds call to wild

Wild answers

Tamed by the wild

We need the Sovereignty


This is also a different staff but a good one.

I love your poem, and the burned brown brothers you helped to build into men.
