“Poetry Afternoon”

There is extra today, as I was too late yesterday.


Rod McKuen

“It happens just because we need

to want and to be wanted too,

when love is here or gone

to lie down in the darkness

and listen to the warm.”


“For every star that falls to earth a new one glows.

For every dream that fades away a new one grows.

When things are not what they would seem

you must keep following your dream.”


Both from “Listen to the Warm”



James Kavanaugh

“I was born to catch dragons in their dens.

And pick flowers.

To tell tales and laugh away the morning.

To drift and dream like a lazy stream

And walk barefoot across sunshine days.”


From “Sunshine Days and Foggy Nights”


“I have no past — the steps have disappeared

the wind has blown them away.”


From “There Are Men Too Gentle to Live Among Wolves”



Two very gentle Men, two very good Friends, I hope you enjoyed the extracts as much as I enjoy reading their works.




Rod, the gentle soul.

Pamela, Merry Christmas and all the very best for the New Year.  Anna.
