Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

The Blind Hobo ( A Pantoum)
lescole

The Hobo walks a lonely road,
 1
A poor soul carried by the breeze,
 2
His memories his only load,
 3
The only things the blind man sees.
 4
 
 
A poor soul carried by the breeze,
 5
His guide the ripples of a stream,
 6
The only things the blind man sees,
 7
Are places such as this, a dream.
 8
 
 
His guide the ripples of a stream,
 9
The blind man walks, his prayers a song,
 10
Are places such as this a dream?
 11
To find a place to be, belong.
 12
 
 
The blind man walks, his prayers a song,
 13
His memories his only load,
 14
To find a place to be, belong,
 15
The Hobo walks a lonely road !!
