Paradelle

Paradelle

A Poem by Maglia Weaver Twill

Teaching versus dogma; then malice eradicated

Dockyard, unscrupulous, a marine
dockyard unscrupulous, a marine.
Obsession for what did I fail?
Grow these ropes from hemp.
Marine, did I fail?  What for?
A dockyard unscrupulous obsession.

Doctors, I beg off your power
doctors I beg off your power;
Often enough pine needles fall,
Continuous Pledges blinding
Enough doctors beg often pine
Needles fall, I power you’re off..


Thrice loafers had I walked away;
thrice loafers had I walking, a way. 
Entering though the open doors,
Then malice making a sour list.
Doors had. I threw away loafers.
Open thrice walking, the entering.

Loafers feel unscrupulous, dockyard
lovers fail, unscrupulous dockyards.
Open doors for your marrying doctors;
What power! Did big needles enter
the ring of power, a-walking often
through rice? I shun the way, obsess.

nice poetic form...thank you for sharing...we can learn art from your writings... :) I love the second last stanza
Thrice loafers had I walked away;
thrice loafers had I walking, a way.
Entering though the open doors,
Then malice making a sour list.
Doors had. I threw away loafers.
Open thrice walking, the entering

beautiful piece :)

"Doctors, I beg off your power
doctors I beg off your power;
Often enough pine needles fall,
Continuous Pledges blinding
Enough doctors beg often pine
Needles fall, I power you’re off.."

I love your use of repetition, it really makes a powerful statement.

Great poem! It is clear you have been writing for a long time, keep it up!
