    I Have Written.

    I have  written

    Of pretty pictures from sky,

    of the axe as it fell, and the look in their eye,

    of the head on the block,

    and French revolution,

    of inmates running their French institution.


    I’ve written of sweat that falls on the brow,

    of gunners and lovers to tell them somehow.

    I’ve written of the Bojeemy tree,

    how  I slept under it, and what happened to me.

    I have written of trains, fast  in the night,

    and the smell of the pine if you get it just rite.

    I’ve written to friends, most of them dead,

    and still to those friends now  in my head.

    I’ve written of madness,

    of fairy tales and myth,

    to the  wide eyed innocence of those I was with,

     of voyage, adventure ,and tragic allure,

    of China corrupt and Mandarin pure.

    Of battles and journey , such things I dare mention, compelled to now tell 
    that I have your attention.

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
