‘Xerxes’ and Other Poetry by A.R. Harmon The Society February 9, 2016 Beauty, Culture, Human Rights in China, Poetry Xerxes My power does lie In hue of the sky In the refined folds of God’s estate My throne I have carved Of sapphire hard And I crowned it with God’s ark of Jade My hosts of legions Number in millions Like a cloak o’er the land are they spread They march ever on From old Babylon Across bridges they built from the dead So who are these Greeks! The fools who dare seek To turn a God’s tower to rubble Heaven’s against them My reign has no end And my sun rests on wings immortal. Falun Dafa Haiku Still Falun Dafa Lasting flame in darkened land Fierce spark caught in ice All That Was Lost A Chinese medicine man Weeps for the last tree A Kolkata man holds his child’s funeral Beside the last river A Scottish hunter Pierces the last hart A child of cold wonder Watches the last snow fall She strums on the Koto As the final wind Takes the last cherry blossom A.R. Harmon is a traveling writer. She has worked in various locations in Europe and California, and currently resides in New Orleans.
