The World Of Trees

for them, the skies are dear,
the wind, the unexpected rains;
the ants trailing up the bark ways

and the children making faery
rings of the white or speckled stones;
the far off violet mists

with the sweet birds, flown

and the gold plated, silver plated moons;
and winter's alterations,
autumnal glows;

the far off sigh of starlight,
the myriad jeweled:
the Christmas gleam of snows.

On Receiving a 50 Lb. Carton Of The Great Books

my categories are never in the great books
she laughed what to wear when larkspur blooms
the color of the moon at Christmas

are there enough rosebuds in the small bouquet
and when the trees sway, what do they mean
and how many shades of green are possible

and what should we sing in the moment it turns to Spring
and are all wings iridescent or only a few
and will I know you in the next life

will we all be together under the sun that never blinks
and will we still dream wide awake.
do you think so?

when the Lord takes all our souls
back home

mary angela douglas 28 may 2016

This Is

and this is a message for you
when you are far away
far away and standing still

to hear the slightest anything
a leaf falls to the pavement ringing
the moon sinking out of sight

and the frost cries,
unable to leave the winter ground.
this is the sound of the breaking

of your heart
by iniquitous courts and of
my standing by to hear the stunning

news that those appointed to judge
have been removed
and the advocate and the Father in Heaven

have arrived on scene.
and this is not a dream.
this is.

Blind

blind cried the angels of justice
they are blind
those who trick the mind of

believers to unbelieve
and hold the world up
without

the pillars of song
they are wrong
and the wronged

will not forget them
until the tides of men
retreat from lies

and truth rises in the gloom
with the uplifted,uplifting;
the jeweled sword sheathed

You'll Carry Your Pink Parasol In Heaven

you'll carry your pink parasol in Heaven
I whispered to the child
that used to be you

from far away
because I had to;
thinking of other days

when we would play
as if Eternity were
already ours

in all the prismed hours

and you with your longing
for kingdoms of the purely pink and red;
piano music

in the same key,
giftwrapped, cherry on top, please.

We'll Wear White Like The Bride Dolls

we'll wear white like the bride dolls in that Kingdom
this, the grass stained children dreamed
or they exclaimed

on rainy days or when their
emerald tears subsided
long after Glinda glided from the scenes

of those sad flickering pictures on
the screen
when it looked like Home

could never return.
how it burns the mind, even still,
and piecemeal. hurts you

when you turn suddenly
back from the cool afternoons
after school

where we wandered:
in-between Christmases.

The Rose And The Gold Have Lined His Mind

[to William Butler Yeats]

the rose and the gold had lined his mind
far from the cries of human kind.
the rose and the gold.

and twining through his verses glowed
the hues of Beauty as she goes
of rose, old gold, the living streams

within, without

no bartered dreams.
oh poet of the long agos
while here, our doorsteps fill

with snows
through you we sing and not by rote
the Irish summer linnet's note;

the wild myths' ocean all before
our dreaming hearts
that dreamed before

and will again
if words we keep
like angels watching

your long sleep.

mary angela douglas 24 may 2016

We Move Through Space

we move through space as through
transparencies of angels;
through time, as though

we never had left home.
and in the tower rooms
sometimes, we feel neglected;

yet sometimes feel,
we're truly not alone.
God on the bright winged days

is living still.
and high birdsong among
the sheltering trees.

and all that's made of anguish
sifts like snowfall
beyond the mind's

imaginative seas.
still may we write in gold
our soul's deep journey

or linger long
in childhood's violet wood
or carry in our hearts

the great locked secrets
of all that's true,
and beautiful

and good.
let news of the outside, rumors
cast away

and leave us here
as contemplation's wards.
that God set between us and the dead-

forever vivid, each noetic Word.
until the day
the dream is vindicated;

accusing fact stands cowering
near the door
and flees into the night

that's never ending
while we in hope depart
for green lit shores.

They Are Not The Gateway

when is the last time
you wrote your sister
he sneered through the glass

of the Other Side
but the angel cried,
do not answer.

you have fashioned words into rosebuds,
music into stars, trees into leaves
of emerald for her sake.

make no excuses to the rabble
simply because they know no
other script asleep or awake, than echoing

when is the last time, the time, the time
sneered the mockers gathering
in a winter  clime

she wrote in frost
on a window pane of gold
ah, we are not, not, not

bought or sold.
I said to her in a dream;
to God, near His candle branching stars.

Then Let The Soul Be Freed

out from the history of all of this
much farther out
and out of time

maybe we can go there,
where the velvet of nights
holds no contradiction

then let the soul be freed
from all iniquities
and let there be

cessation of want
of all the little griefs
the great afflictions

surely there is an accounting under God
for these
that blue skied joys

may return to us
unmitigated,
the flowered fields

mary angela douglas 22 may 2016




God Used A Mirage To Help Us

God used a mirage to help us
through desert passages:
the cloud on fire;

the haze on the scrub cactus.
we were amazed.
but beyond amazement

when we reached green lands
and the ragged edge
of our souls, looking back

on the way we came

so suddenly, strangely, to know
from flame tip to flame
how illusory the clouds had been.

how the pillars,
like the requisite angels,
come and go.

DEAR READER/POEMS IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE

Dear Reader,

A heartfelt poetry welcome to you.

Just type the title into the space at the bottom of the month by month archives and after the Links in the right margin where it says: “SEARCH THIS BLOG” and hit Enter.  This will bring up the poem you have requested from the list of poems that follows this letter. Also you can click on any of the labels on the upper right hand side of your screen and find surprise poems. You will see what I mean if you do so.

You can also click on the ten entries under Popular Posts which represent poems people have liked the most over the last 30 days.  And even though they are "popular" they are not at all "stuck up" because I would smack them if they were. (I am their mother, so to speak)


If it doesn't (bring them up), you can look at the poems by month and year under the blog archives. After you click on month and year under archives you would just keep clicking on older posts at the bottom of the page until you found the title you were looking for. 


If you don’t wish to do this, scroll past this list to where the poems begin and just click on Older Posts when you reach the bottom of the page and you can go through the poems chronologically that is from most recent posts and back.  If this doesn't work, just pray. That's my general rule for everything and it has often helped me so I endow you with it, too. (if you need endowing).(I forgot to say you can also enter the title of the poem you wish for in the little window in the top left hand of the screen.

And if you find as you read the titles of the poems that some will loom larger, while others shrink smaller,and some with a cheshire smile just fade out of view-then just remember Alice and especially remember that she got out of it all alive and still with cheerful demeanor or at least no one ever said: otherwise.

For all family, friends and teachers past, present, and future.  God bless and keep you on your way.

And eternally to the Russian poets Anna Akhmatova, Osip Mandelstam and Boris Pasternak who continued singing their personal, highly individual music, lyrical poetry from their own souls as before God at the risk not only of personal reputation, but life itself in the face of political propaganda and ill-conceived conformity, massive cruelty, in other words, in the mouth of hell they did not rebrand themselves. Why should they? They were already the poets they were supposed to be and they knew it.

Anyone wishing to write their own poems, famous or not, take heart. The people who love poetry the most are not always only the people with their name up in lights. It matters that you write poetry if you deeply feel to do so. If you deeply feel to do so, you are a poet no matter what anyone says.

Use the internet to share your poems,if you wish especially poemhunter.com. It (poemhunter)is a very kind and friendly website. I would suggest as well as wordpress.com, blogger.com and there are others. God keep you safe. You don't have to tolerate bullies criticizing your poems. If this happens to you, just leave that site. Many blogs allow you to delete trashy comments.

I also must confess the poet I love the best beyond all other poets (as so many do, I know) is Rainer Maria Rilke who also famously fell in love with Russia.

And I am deeply inspired by Valerie Macon, briefly, poet laureate of North Carolina for her bravery under fire, unfailing kindness and her deep abiding love for poetry and for the worth of self published and amateur poets not only throughout our state, but, I believe, the world. She is the real deal, as we say in American English.

May all countries and ethnicities, let me make a distinction here on which everything depends - all individuals - find and hold onto through every difficulty the God-given languages of beauty and of the heart as you did, for the sake of God and for the peace and innocence of all our children.

And may we find the dream language beyond all sorrows that will not allow us to abandon hope and the home that the arts provide us glimpsing as Yeats said so wonder-filled, “Eternal Beauty, wandering on her way.”

Best wishes, thoughts and prayers to anyone finding this blog on purpose or coincidentally.  I hope my poems make you happy. Although I am unable to answer comments at this time, I read every comment sent to me,  God Bless You (from my “family” to yours!). And still I mull over all the ones who can't leave my heart, my poems: The Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, Walter De La Mare, RAY BRADBURY...

May you always speak and be spoken to in diamonds, never toads. (See the poem Note from Home, Years Later, in Reply to a Note from School if you wish, for further explanation, or the Peruault Fairytale I was initially inspired by which is called either Toads and Diamonds or Diamonds and Toads but which I am calling Toads and Diamonds so that my last word to you here can be a diamond.)
