My Sparta!

My Sparta!

A Poem by Thomas Fitzgerald
"

A look at a place and people I've fallen in love with.

"

Mothers of men roam free among the grasses,

Strike chords within the hearth of male kin,

Attica asks why they rule over strong men,

Bear witness to those that never use sin.

 

Greeks scratch at stone in our honour,

Speak of glory and freedom from corruption,

Pedantry has not now or ever been food,

Strong will and power slack needless abruption.

 

Helen and Gorgo refuse to take the bait,

Leonidas shake hands with enemies nah one,

Cynisca has power that rival the future beauty,

Menelaus our king and god how graves are gone.

 

Sparta the heaven for all warriors and slaves,

A true force of nature and tattered dreams,

Carvings tell of all those pleasant and bloody wars,

How history forgets the telling and secret schemes.

I missed your poems, sir, with the author's note saying "honesty" ! xD
So, let me be honest, since you asked it:
the first thing that catch my attention is your great knowledge, you've put so many important people's name in the poem ! (I honestly remember only Helen and Menelaus, I've always hated greek mythology xD). Your metrica is outstanding, it is so perfect that I can SEE it, no need to count syllables. Use of quatrains, a classical :). Great pathos, looks pretty much a praise !
