  • Mary Most Holy, Mother Most Sweet
    may the angels in heaven sing thy praise
    while down below, on bended knee
    thy children turn upward their loving gaze

    Hail Queen of Heaven, Mystical Rose
    mercifully for us thy Son's pardon obtain
    so that we may, together with thee
    rejoice forever in His glorious reign

    Refuge of Sinners, Fountain of Love
    may thy light from the heavens brightly shine
    hiding my sins from thy Son's eyes
    so one day heaven, thy home, may be mine!

    -Dulcamara

  • I know I've written some silly poetry and lyrics in my day, but I've written some serious poetry too.

    Behold:

    (To the tune of "Saviour of the Nations, Come")

    Here we strive against the world
    as we seek the priceless pearl
    Our true happiness we seek
    in this foreign land so bleak

    Sin has caused so much decay
    Help us find the Catholic way
    Give us strength the truth to teach
    and unending joy to reach

    For the greatest war is now:
    Satan gathers all his pow'r
    Yet the saints will vanquish him
    With God's power given them

    Dominic was chosen well,
    to save wand'ring sheep from hell
    Mary filled his greatest need:
    Crucifix and sixty beads.

    Television, Satan's tool
    To impose infernal rule:
    Christendom is now no more,
    God's own law most men deplore.

    As men chase their own desires
    Making worse their carnal fires
    Steeped in sin with none confess'd
    Thus depriving them of rest.

    Sin does lead to countless woes
    Man shall reap what e'er he sows
    God allows their misery
    That they might find need of Him.

    The world sinking day by day,
    difficult to find our way!
    Catholic we must remain,
    Christ the Lord will never change.

    Persecution rages on,
    But united with God's Son:
    Offered up at every Mass,
    Our salvation comes to pass.

    Most have gone from the true path,
    Save us from Thy coming wrath:
    Let us stand victoriously,
    Safe with Thee, eternally!

    Why have all the gentiles raged?
    For in Christ they can be saved:
    They were cruelly deceived
    by the devil they believed.

    Age of Mary, age of grace
    In the twilight of our race:
    Now is when we need thy saints!
    To win back the world in chains

    Age of Mary, glorious age
    as we watch the devils rage:
    fruitlessly against the Church,
    founded by the endless Word.

    Age of Mary, age divine
    Set before the end of Time:
    God's own plan will now proceed,
    all was planned and well forseen.

    Age of Mary, age of Saints
    When God's chosen, filled with grace,
    go about to win Him souls
    Smashing all of Satan's goals

    Age of Mary, light of dawn,
    with the darkness finally gone:
    Giving hope to faithful men,
    That God's mercy never ends.

    Age of Mary, long foretold
    By His faithful saints of old:
    That the devil's one last stand
    Will bring forth the saints most grand.

    Age of Mary, soon to come,
    When the devil thinks he won,
    Just in time he'll be set back:
    Reeling from the Lord's attack!

    For the devil filled with pride
    Dreads the Woman at God's side
    For though human, she excels
    The angelic prince of Hell

    Spotless Mother of Our Lord
    Grant us wisdom we implore:
    Patience, and humility,
    valor, grace and purity.

    God the Father, mighty King,
    All creation is for Thee:
    Lord, destroy the errors rife
    That all men might find true Life.

    God the Son, God's Love unfurled,
    Who taught us to fight the world,
    Help us die to self with Thee,
    save our souls, and thus be free.

    Holy Spirit, God's own Love,
    Leading souls to heav'n above:
    Grant us fulness of Thy gifts
    That in Christ we all may live.

    God the Father, King above
    With Thy Son who died of love,
    and Thy Spirit highly blessed,
    Grant to us eternal rest. Amen.

  • Roses are red, violets are blue,
    Rothschild's a banker, and he's also a...

    Carrots are orange, lilies are white,
    The life of man upon earth is one intense fight...

    To call these rhymes poems is a bit of a stretch,
    But for the love of G-d, please do not kvetch!

  • If anyone here has not read Chesterton's poetry, please do.  He is an excellent poet.  His epic Ballad of the White Horse is worth the time - many times over.

  • For Christmas, a poem about St. Joseph. I forgot who originally wrote this, and couldn't be bothered to check right now, but I know it as a song, and I believe it's originally a poem.

    ---

    The Hands That First Held Mary's Child

    The hands that first held Mary's Child
    Were hard from working wood
    From boards they sawed and planed and filed
    And splinters they withstood

    This day they gripped no tool of steel
    They drove no iron nail
    But cradled from the head to heel
    Our Lord, newborn and frail

    When Joseph marveled at the size
    Of that small breathing frame
    And gazed upon those bright new eyes
    And spoke the Infant's name

    The angel's voice he once had dreamed
    Poured down from heaven's height
    And like the host of starts that gleamed
    Blessed earth with welcome light

    This Child will be Emmanuel
    Not God upon the throne
    But God-with-us, Emmanuel
    As close as blood and bone

    The tools which Joseph laid aside
    A mob would later lift
    And use with anger, fear and pride
    To crucify God's gift

    Let us, O Lord, not only hold
    The Child who's born today
    But charged with faith, may we behold
    To follow in His way

    The tiny form in Joseph's palms
    Confirmed what he had heard
    And from his heart rose hymns and psalms
    For heaven's human Word

    This Child will be Emmanuel
    Not God upon the throne
    But God-with-us, Emmanuel
    As close as blood and bone

  • EDITED: Poem's link removed. See following posts in this thread.


    I wrote this poem, but I couldn't post it here because I'm under contract not to... >pokes chant< ... *ahem* ... I said, I'm under contract not to... ^o^

     Okay, this is probably not very good, but it's something I wrote last night. It's a very blunt poem about a very bad end to a life that the world would call "good" ... and the mistake of thinking "there's always tomorrow" to turn around and change, if we feel like it.

     The poem is called "So You Thought" and you can find it here, on this page which does not belong to me (so no, I can't fix the annoying ads that mess up the poem's form for the first two paragraphs.)

    Oh, and if you DO like it, please help me out by clicking the "I like it" link at the end of it, so that hopefully, some day, someone else may actually read it. lol
    I renounce any and all of my former views against what the Church through Pope Leo XIII said, "This, then, is the teaching of the Catholic Church ...no one of the several forms of government is in itself condemned, inasmuch as none of them contains anythi

  • I just hit the "I liked it" button! It's really great most especially the last part!

    Quote
    So you thought you'd have time, but now you're six feet down
    no end to pain, no end to time, no more chances left
    you used to laugh at the fools who used to live by the rules
    but the party ended in eternal regret.

    Does that mean there's $$$ involved??  :cheers:


    To make a long and complicated story short, there is, if lots of people see it. I will get half of the money earned by the annoying (and probably really bad) ads. And probably the more pages it ends up on, the more annoying ads I get paid for.

    But if I can do several really decent pieces (eg, if I can get people to be interested in my work on an ongoing basis), then I'll probably just make my own site, put much less annoying ads on it, and then I'll get all of the cash.

     :dancing-banana:

     Unfortunately, the trouble is not being known. So I'm hoping that even if I don't make squat doing this, that I can at least get noticed. From there I can start thinking about better pay.

     I guess right now my writing career is in the "humiliating beginnings" stage.

     Oh, my apologies to anyone who was blinded if the ads are really that bad. I can't see them as a rule, because I use firefox.

     :faint:

  •  Oh, and thanks to everybody who liked it. ^,^

     I really wasn't sure what people would think. It's so... blunt, I guess. But I wanted to do something that "tells it like it is."

  •  I just took that poem out of circulation, because I saw some of the ads that were coming up on that page. I probably won't be able to share that poem anymore, but I hope to get a site together where I can post some of my writing without the vile ads.

    -Edit- You can now find it here:
    So You Thought

    I think I revised that one actually...

  •  But on the upside, you can read my next poem on a much cleaner page of my own, right here:

  • "Pray for Me"

    The day that I'm no longer there
    I won't ask you not to care
    but there some things I don't want
    for you to do when I am gone

    Don't throw a party in my name
    don't cry too long cause it's in vain
    don't wish that I would come right back
    there's more to life than only that

    Don't say that I have gone to heav'n
    because I may not be there yet
    and if on earth you'd help me out
    then pray for me and don't forget

    Don't leave me gifts upon my grave
    don't hate the One that made me leave
    I'd trade one Ave for each rose
    I can use that more than those

    Don't say my life came to an end
    don't be ashamed to move along
    but if you loved me here, my friends
    oh, won't you help me when I'm gone?

    Don't pretend I was never there
    because I'm still alive somewhere
    but please don't hang me on your wall
    if you won't pray for me at all

    So if you care for me my friends
    then please don't let your praying end
    cause even if I'm in heaven now
    someone else could use them anyhow

    I've got a heavy debt to pay
    have you any water for my grave?
    and if you can't visit my bones
    please pray for me right from your homes

    and if you'd visit me on earth
    remember me for what it's worth
    cause I may be suffering till I pay
    so, please don't leave me alone that way

    So don't go on in misery
    And don't lament what couldn't be
    because in heav'n I hope we'll meet
    but until then, just pray for me

    I renounce any and all of my former views against what the Church through Pope Leo XIII said, "This, then, is the teaching of the Catholic Church ...no one of the several forms of government is in itself condemned, inasmuch as none of them contains anythi
