Devon MAG

August 24, 2008
By Teresa Pigford, Brooklyn, NY

hello sweet sounds of autumn … i await your return … where have you been?
lost in the melody of your own voice,
the beat of your own drum?
come back to mama,
before this summer tune bids me dead,
nevah did like the mention of departing,
yet i,
i am willing to wave a sweet good-bye to these hot days and hotter nights,
i’ll be waiting, autumn leaves,
for you to come back and comfort my weary soul.

The author's comments:
this poem is about my dear fiend devon. he has inspired countless pieces of my art work in various forms such as paintings, songs, composed pieces, and fictional and non fictional stories. It is a pleasure to use this inspiration to tap into the souls and hearts of others.

Insult my clothes, I say, “Okay, thanks for the compliment.”
Insult the way I look, I say, “Thanks for notifying me.”
Mock me and say riding isn’t a sport, and I’ll say,”You say that ’cause you can’t ride.” But before you make fun of my horse, make sure you have “911″ on your speed dial.

that was beautiful!!!

I love the feel this poem gives off, it's like i can get the description and you get all warm inside and you can feel a bit of sunshine on your cheek when you read this-its a great piece, a really great piece.

the mention of autumn leaves gives this piece a sense of hibernation for winter, not necessarily fall for me... especially with the line "summer tune bids me dead..." interesting thought to think this was inspired from a friend... how does it all fit? good stuff though, read some of mine?

I have often said it, and it is finally true: A Friend without 'R' is nothing but a Fiend! her comment... HILARIOUS but the poem was pretty good
