My Eyes Have Seen Now.

My Eyes Have Seen Now.

My eyes have seen now
more than half,
of a hundred years.
Opened wide
and closed tight shut,
smiled and shed some tears.
Gazed upon the heavens
and deep beneath the sea,
from up on high,
through forest green.,
Now let me tell you
what I’ve seen..

All types I’ve seen
of man and beast,
at this Gods table
come to feast
upon what life has given us,
some love and hate
some fear and trust.

Attend this life
with kindness well.
This I’ve seen
and can now tell.

Wow. This was a terrific poem. It's so true when you're young you think you know it all, a little bit older you feel you can solve it all,older still it seems like you've seen and done it all but know that you haven't. this was wonderful to read a ten in my book.

I won't see that unfortunately Sally..."Broken Bird" Thank you for reading me, I'll read you later, Captaininsight.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
