Much of a Muchness by David Coad

Dive into a selection of 102 poems about life, emotion, nature and how we all cope and live with the stresses of the everyday

Above the Day

One day, one night
New lives shine bright
A hundred sunsets, a hundred moons
Life’s over, far too soon
A thousand dusks, a thousand dawns
Time and its dominion, over the newly born
A million months in a billion days
Life lives its life, in a billion different ways
A billion years, through a trillion seasons
Life on earth, without any reasons
Eons through space, eons in time
Spirits in the universe,
Forever yours and mine

Lost Thoughts by Penair School Creative Club

Lost Thoughts

one, two, three
broken dreams and shattered memories
searching desperately for a means of escape
we need to be set free
four, five, six
time ticks on and we’re stuck inside our heads
trapped on this mystery track to nowhere
someone set us free
seven, eight, nine
a spark of vivid imagination
endless pain released like butterflies
an idea, a thought, a memory
ten, eleven, a dreamlike state of mind
ink on paper, pain on canvass
wandering out of reality
eleven years of lost thoughts

Autumn

Kicking through the fallen leaves
Taking in fresh air
Walking under endless trees
Wind flying through my hair

Waking up to darkened skies
Scraping out of bed
Getting dressed while rubbing eyes
I’m such a sleepy head

Finally, the time has come
To go outside again
Autumn is my favourite time
But winters come instead

Painted Dream – Penair School Creative Club

Voices
I sat and stared with tear filled eyes
A part of my heart gone
My voice rises up in song
A golden ribbon flying the skies
It dances around with the tune
As it rolls down the valley like mist
Then it rises again in a fist
Then it stops and goes, just as soon

Butterflies

They fly away from the old life to fly to a new life
there old life was so boring, they only ate leafs
now they get to do whatever they want to do
they are pretty in the sunlight
and they sit on flowers
and then fly away
to a new journey
again and again
