Water Wonderful Water


Persuasions these woods display
generating perceptions of correctness
holds my dismay

this correctness I shall share
without gloom or haze
with only lucidity I will say
tis life we betray

let bright moonlight come in
thru the soul
casting out the darkness to the ground
leaving it to shadow in eternity


these woods holds me
with limbs and leafs for warmth

water flows washed-up for cleansing
expired to air
accumulates for thirst of ground

then afresh streams flux with earth
to only conceive essence of being
this my conception of creation
this creator of foundations of life

water wonderful water

you comprehend but deny avow
and facade this truth to contain self replica
you perceive equality with water
via your ecclesiastical praxes

what superiority on water?
by reason of nature
proves your misconception of your world

Wandering around a broken heart
wondering where to start

It should not, but it does
the ups and downs
are like tied to a string
spinning traveling that string
up and down

then stops
with silence
leaving ruptures
untouching again what was untouchable
unacceptable

no tears
no fears

the dream not outworn
in time to reach

The Copernican System


The Sun revolving on his axis turns,
And with creative fire intensely burns;
Impell'd by forcive air, our Earth supreme,
Rolls with the planets round the solar gleam.
First Mercury completes his transient year,
Glowing, refulgent, with reflected glare;
Bright Venus occupies a wider way,
The early harbinger of night and day;
More distant still our globe terraqueous turns,
Nor chills intense, nor fiercely heated burns;
Around her rolls the lunar orb of light,
Trailing her silver glories through the night:
On the Earth's orbit see the various signs,
Mark where the Sun our year completing shines;
First the bright Ram his languid ray improves;
Next glaring watry thro' the Bull he moves;
The am'rous Twins admit his genial ray;
Now burning thro' the Crab he takes his way;
The Lion flaming bears the solar power;
The Virgin faints beneath the sultry show'r,
Now the just Balance weighs his equal force,
The slimy Serpent swelters in his course;
The sabled Archer clouds his languid face;
The Goat, with tempests, urges on his race;
Now in the Wat'rer his faint beams appear,
And the cold Fishes end the circling year.
Beyond our globe the sanguine Mars displays
A strong reflection of primoeval rays;
Next belted Jupiter far distant gleams,
Scarcely enlighten'd with the solar beams,
With four unfix'd receptacles of light,
He tours majestic thro' the spacious height:
But farther yet the tardy Saturn lags,
And five attendant Luminaries drags,
Investing with a double ring his pace,
He circles thro' immensity of space.
These are thy wondrous works, first source of Good!
Now more admir'd in being understood.

Thomas Chatterton

1752 - 1770 / England
