Friend of a Friend

It mattered that he lived and died -

A wild, kicking stallion,

Who lusted, laughed, defied and cried

He roared like a battalion.

 

Friend he was to a friend of mine -

A rock! a tower! giant of a man!

In a flash, he lost life number nine

But he left a trophy in the race he ran  

Of wisdom and warmth, of dance and song

Of memories, legends, wise words to impart.

His scroll unfurls in a banner so long

Writ with his soul and sealed with his heart.

 

Soar to the stars, friend of my friend

A poem about Quebec City

Marty's picture
Submitted by Marty on Fri, 2005-12-02 23:38

QUEBEC -by Marty Lewinter Mighty walls along the waters Sloping city of glories past, Legacy of French sons and daughters, Dreams of empire that didn't last. Harbor master, gatekeeper, mighty portal! So warm under white wintery blanket so cold! What spirit renders thee immortal? Ancient - though you don't grow old! Frosted glass and smooth carved stone, Defiant fortress aloof, alone. Smoke-topped dwellings - winding street Flowing seaway at your feet. Weathered statue smooth to my hand, How tall and proud, how strong you stand. Silent witness - I'd lend both ears To hear the wisdom of a hundred years.
