The Crackenback Winds

THE CRACKENBACK WINDS It’s roaring outside now at forty-two knots Like a thousand beasts on a rampage We’re bunkering down in an effort to sleep But I know that the battle is lost. The ending of this I can’t fathom or gauge With windows and walls being battered While...

To Mum

TO MUM Elaine Iris Reid nee Walls For you we've dressed these outdoor halls The last day in your seventies So we expect some revelry Nay, we expect some devilry Some of you may be unaware But she's run wild in her underwear She was in Sydney in the sixties Though...

The Greatest of Guys

THE GREATEST OF GUYS The greatest of guys has just left us, He's taken his last boat to sea He's driven his last fancy vehicle, He's taken the life out of me. My big brother hero just left me, He's saved me just so many times, He'd counsel against rash decisions, Then...

Rest Well My Brother

REST WELL MY BROTHER I’ll never be lonely I’ll always be free ‘Cause you are my brother You’re right next to me So sleep well my brother So rest well my brother So take heart my brother You’re always with me There is a song There is a sadness I’ve carried so long But...

Ode to Pete

ODE TO PETE Come, bid me farewell as I head out to sea I’m off to another reunion The horizon beyond is calling to me The ocean my perfect seclusion. Well here we are, it’s the time we all feared I’m sorry I’m not up to greet you But I realised there’s somewhere else...

Leave Nothing On The Table

LEAVE NOTHING ON THE TABLE Tonight I watched my best man Writhing in a hospital bed They couldn’t get the morphine in fast enough I wish I was here in his stead. Watching my sweet brother die Saying goodbye so slowly, so long All I can say to my friends Is cherish the...

Oh how I pity other men

OH HOW I PITY OTHER MEN Oh how I pity other men, their hopeless life position, Their marriages unhappy, wives gathering ammunition, Lives filled with useless purpose, action without meaning, Endless options wasted in a cycle most demeaning. And here I sit infatuated,...

This Innocent

THIS INNOCENT If God has seen all that has gone in me And felt the mortal pain that I now feel, With heart or conscience he must soothe my state, Or else drive his deathly sword Of liberty. If I am now alone, and by such doubt It seems it be, let Nature’s force...

Next Time Round

NEXT TIME ROUND You rose from a nightmare You say I was the star Then you stabbed the life into me To see the sunrise And all I was thinking Was where I had been And all I was loving Was the lady before. You saw my dilemma You knew where Iʼd gone So you punched my...

My Lady

MY LADY My lady, suffer not this fool who present holds your favour, For he is but a pleasant toy and everwhile the knaver; You see this love as one which, given time, shall fairly blossom, Yet you are but the apple tree and I am but your possum. By nature’s course we...

Of Reality Of Logic

OF REALITY Time on morbid hour I dwell alone, Captured in my self-denying cell; I could see now but for an instant, I could hold you still and call you mine - But moment soon would flee to minute, And you would ring the chastened bell And send me sweetly back to hell....

Honest Ecstacy

HONEST ECSTACY Softly, silent words of caring pass between As golden dust upon a pauper’s brow, Or seasons’ wealth on Gaea’s nurtured green; We suffer not from speech, our needs are filled By peace of presence, never more than touching On a hope, a fading dream, a new...

Tomorrowʼs Child

TOMORROW'S CHILD And once as children, sailing on a smile A day or lifetime, freedom sanctified And still untouched; a herald sang of you Our precious charm, our lifeʼs alluring bride. And then as beauty, softly from a cloud A wide-eyed dove, evolved from life to love...

This Leaf of Dust

THIS LEAF OF DUST The falling leaves cry to the wind, One final plea for reason, A tree of life now parting For a time to memory, And this our early Autumn Dries a supple Spring romance, As old Hephaestus forges new Tomorrowʼs sunlit dance. It bled for us, this leaf...

Separation

SEPARATION An intense mortality creeps inward Biting as a teething child, Drawing, sucking, forcing out the breath And into fear, or solitude, or both But even in embalméd troth A grasping web beneath. I hide, cushioning myself around With fortress borne in green’s...

Salted Lips of Time

SALTED LIPS OF TIME Reaching from a wind-swept dream, A silent pleasure-ground of smiling sun And dancing seas, eternity above, A fire within. Sailing, gliding, sifting promises Of love-dried sand through answered cries; A seagull diving, I above, unclothed And free,...

Alive Again

ALIVE AGAIN In dreams untried, (the painted actorʼs grief) All feelings bled, dry fears of wisdom shed, Our humble man, the actor held beneath, The prophetʼs dream, the childʼs belief. A man entombed, without tomorrowʼs sky I felt I knew, he felt the sunrise too,...

And In The Morn

AND IN THE MORN On broken tears, the naked flesh Embalméd in a silent misery; Twilight dreams surrender to the dark, Unflinching in its callous strain Of time for time, and now to life, And in the new-found morn Denies the early past, A twilight yes, but not the dark,...

The Aegean Soldier

THE AEGEAN SOLDIER A hilltop of green saw the soldier, In pain as he cried to the mist; For the soldier saw only his father, In death to a black morningʼs fist. Persephone watched from a rise And sighed for the pain at her ʻneath, And the father in white watched...

Without You

WITHOUT YOU Silence, in a morning’s misery Of wasted loves and dying moons, A headache of light’s truth to come; The pain of disappearing dew, The death in living without you.   December 1977 (as amended) © Michael G Reid 1977-2011

A World of Gold

A WORLD OF GOLD In a tireless age, in an infinite dome, The breath of morning birds and new-born winds Unfolds, in a senseless skin, a beauteous mirth And in an unmasked eye a world of gold.   Coffs Harbour December 1977 (as amended) © Michael G Reid...

To Yesterday

TO YESTERDAY A sinner be in loving, sinners’ foe, Injustice bred in reading errant lust As artless love, sweet dalliance, hope - I bled those days as one possessed: My eyes I dared not see while closing yours, Dry lips did mock with common tongue, found Rare betwixt...

Season

SEASON The silent scent of buds new-fallen, Leaves as tainted embers of tomorrow - I search the peace where eyes so burned might Sigh, to ponder never more upon a tear; Sweet darkness bred as light awakens, Terrified with morning’s mist, love’s visage Of a crop...

Sweet Princess

SWEET PRINCESS If you can say our love is lost And futureʼs warmth to seasoned frost, If you can smile a last goodbye To eyes that never dreamed deny, If you can name one kiss the last And loving nights a pleasant past, If you can hold short memʼries dear And cast...

Time Antiquated

TIME ANTIQUATED Sweet Time it motions trees to grow, And Time allows the river-flow; Strict Time it beckons day to night And lets time-wearied seasons fight. Fresh Time purveys a cloudless sun As children to their futures run; Fair Time draws age-old leaves to dust,...

To My Only Tomorrow

TO MY ONLY TOMORROW In dawnʼs first light, in thoughts of purest love, I gaze with humble fire upon a sigh Mute soft, and tender, ready to be kissed, As velvet grass by morningʼs humble mist. Let fate depress your charméd lips to mine As though sweet destiny was meant...

Corridors Lost

CORRIDORS LOST We left the cries to find the heart, And headed north to pillars new: Then found the place we hoped would be, But never thought, could never see. We rang the bell and crawled inside To lovers high on nightly gin, Of skies and breathing honey beds In...

A Dream

A DREAM I see the light, I feel the fire, Piously burning as the souls of tired Adventurers search for the valleyʼs heaven - Mystical, avenging, uneventful mode, Still fearing callousness of heart yet Hoping then, as now, but even fonder For the tireless stream of...

With The Tide

WITH THE TIDE Have you felt that youʼve won, ʻthough youʼre going to die; Have you seen all the joys and the tears and the sighs; Have you known of the heartbreak, the winning, the prize Which helps you to lose, when the next time you try? Will your mind ever wander...

Morning

MORNING So peaceful, warm, or coolly chilled, One sees the light and feels fulfilled; And yet some cry in pain of heart, For they see mem’ries, cold and dark. There are some, loving children’s cries, And see the peace in wild...

Awakening

AWAKENING Young folly breathes a treacherous path, When zest for life, in youth, is felt so old By those incensed, yet still in childhood’s wrath - A bitter remedy for love, so cold.   September 1976 (as amended) © Michael G Reid 1976-2011
