Free Poems: Written by My Mother

Free Poem Written for a Child

The poem was written about me, when I was four years old and my mother was the same age that I am now.


I bought an ice cream for my child.
She struggled to get off the stool.
But – conscious of
Her imperfection –
Asking, “Will you hold this please?”
She catalyzed
My resurrection.

In her mind the future sleeps.
All her talent lays in wait.
I’m her hope
Or her disaster;
As the symbol of her race.
As her teacher
Or her master.

Written by Cheryl Williams in 1979
in Bolinas, California

Free Love Poem: Twining, by Rhys Jones

Free Love Poem


By careful crafted, deep consideration,
From base to tip they intertwine to fashion
Forms unique to nature, man and art
Of separate roots whose stems grow as one part.

What force drives the subtle engineering
Of their ever constant sunward rambling,
Governs their complex co-ordination
To ungoverned nature's admiration?

Glad butterflies beating time, birds resting,
Trees too, longing that harmonious twining,
All see an act of higher creation
Ordered by omniscient compulsion;

But the Gardener knows this arduous pleasure
Is travail done with freedom and ardour.

Free Love Poem: The Divorce

The Divorce

Keep safe distance.
Cite your claims.
Let the fog
Enshroud your shame.

Yield no whisper
Of remorse,
Give no sign
That you endorse

The fables of
The ancient wives,
Who kept their men
And lived their lives ..

The crossing bears
No one-way bar.
But shut your eyes,
And touch your scar,

Remember what
The madman said.
You just live once,
And then you're dead,

And happiness
Is all a myth,
The road ahead
Is clouded with

Who can't be changed.
So label them.
They can be named.

The madman said
You can't repair
Your love or life ...
But you're aware

Deep down below
The cloud of cries,
That life holds hope
That these are lies ...

The choice is yours,
To live or burn,
To hear the lies
Or to return.

Free Love Poem: You Breathe

You Breathe

You breathe at night.
It makes me smile.
You sing to me,
And for a while,

My heart feels calm,
My feelings clear;
The world seems simple,
When you're near.

Poetry Written at Age 8


Why do people stare?
Is it because they’re nosy,
Or is it because they’re not anywhere?
Are they really staring,
Or is something wrong with their eyes?
Maybe they’re just staring
Because they’re in surprise.
Do they know it’s rude to stare?
Do they think they saw a bear?
Or do they see a tiger or a lion?
I’m looking for the answer,
and I keep on tryin’.

The Tide

The early morning tide
Is low again,
Very low,
As if a giant sea monster came in the night
And gulped up half the harbor.
I often wish I could walk out there,
But I either don’t have the time,
Or the courage.
