  • Cockles of Courage

    From trials
    there is no panacea,
    from sorrow no egress.
    For such
    is the nature of seasons
    that we do bend
    upon their turning,
    that we contort,
    to mischievous whims.
    But through hardship
    cockle
    that which finds
    thy courage screwed,
    that hearts,
    though wounded,
    refuse to shatter,
    and hope,
    though shaken,
    is never subdued.

      Again, I hear a Shakespearean cadence, capturing an inflection of nobility, as a ray in a glass.

          You spin me with the rhythm of your words, DWAYNE. This poem is a work of art. I look forward to reading your next one.
