Who Shall Write the Earths Memoirs

Who Shall Write the Earths Memoirs

A Poem by workscot

Hopefully an eon away


let it be the poet

with chisel and stone

carving deep from heart

onto granite page

let it be the musician

training the wind chime

caressing the breeze

with lyrics of love

let it be the gardener

proud parent of the prairie wheat

sustainer of all species

growing fruit from sand

let these be the silent voices

in the aftermath of civilization

when the prosperous earth

returns to rock and rubble

First it was love for the Title.....then i didn't get disappointed. Beautiful and the needed truth.

I read weekly the classic and the ancient writers. Dryden wrote if real life and real people. Words, song and art. Only left-over knowledge of history lost and gone. I remember somewhere in a Hemingway book he wrote. The history is just opinion of the writer. Prime example is Helen Jackson "A century of dishonor." Her words told the truth and broke down the greed for the land wanted and the need to erase a race. We need the writers, the painters and the songs. Thank you for sharing the powerful words and thoughts.

Your poem has my brain flirt with melancholy and dip my toes into a river of gratitude. Your choice words describe how significant the insignificant truly are, giving them merit long overdue. Your flow isn't forced and the meaning is smoothly put. In the echoes of history I too would like to learn the earths stories through such memoirs. Great write, I will always revisit this piece for it has so much meaning to me, it doesn't signify defeat, it's a victorious piece.
