Upon the Hour

Upon the Hour

A Poem by Adam M. Snow
"

My wake draws nearer upon the hour; Call upon, thy upper power. I wait the time for truth be told, When the world itself grows cold.

"
Upon the Hour
By: Adam M. Snow

My wake draws nearer upon the hour;
Call upon, thy upper power.
I wait the time for truth be told,
When the world itself grows cold.
I lie here asleep to tell,
Of this life in worldly hell.
Beware my love of time be told,
Of thy child growing old;
And when your life becomes a knurled,
I will be a w***e for the cold world.

I have been reading some of your poems, and this is one of the better ones. I was going to say don't be afraid to deviate from the rhyme schemes either switch them up more, or dump them altogether. Explore your imagery more too, this is challenging with rhyme schemes, but I am sure you can do it.

Nice author's note describing the word, I didn't know that. As for the poem, very nice; you do have a great way with writing. I like this, nice one.

So strong and held fast to everything near. You know all too well on which you speak of.

This feel like Macbethish. Foretelling in a riddle form with the old world feel mixed in. I love this piece and you have done an outstanding job with your word selections.

I like this poem. I understand the use of the word "w***e." Many of us do what we must without thoughts or concern for the results. Thank you for the excellent poem.

I find a lot of your poems to be lik grenades, small but deadly with power. You are one of the few poets that can pull this off effectively. Well done.

I always love rhyming poems! It was dark, short, and to the point. Great write!

someone's gain...is often another person's loss. Thank you for puting this into perspective.
