‘A Sonnet for a Creative Child’ by Mike Scheidemann of Israel The Society December 23, 2012 Poetry 1 Comment The plaintive wail of a child through the night Is a beastly howl, proclaiming its plight. The song of the wind through fractured grasses Echoes my tread on edge of disasters. This may be one fine way of singing it Life, death, love is the blood of the poet. We make beauty beside a dark abyss. We make something new from a light caress. Then we eagerly grasp tithes of the field Residues of life; weapons that we wield Against unreal distortions of the world, Things that won’t leave humanity unfurled. May I remain the way I was always, A boy alone, left to his dreamy days. Mike Scheidemann: Former President: Voices-The Israel English Poetry Association. (17 years) http://www.voicesisrael.com/ Senior Coordinator: The World Congress of Poets; Haifa, Israel (1992), sponsored by The World Academy of Arts & Culture & UNESCO.
