Poem 24 - Greek to Me

Oh, tea kettle of coca love broken
Oh, tea love broken to repair to complete
I now to repair or devote
Two new go through to loving
Me, I vote for beautiful, joyful morningtide
Now vocative another maddening problem
Thou thief go beauty avenging!

Today’s prompt (optional, as always), is an oldie-but-a-goodie: the homophonic translation. Find a poem in a language you don’t know, and translate it into English based on the look of the words and their sounds

Poem 23 - Wet

face in the water
floating toward the future
a swimmer is born

Poem 22 - The World is Too Much With Us

The world goes spinning past us every day,
A crazy, non-stop merry-go-round ride.
Each moment too full of things we must hide -
Stumbling and dizzy, we must find our way;
Knowing we haven't time to act out this play.
Behind the scenes, the darkness abides
Full of the terrors time has cast aside,
Awaiting the moment we must stop and stay.
The ride stops; the curtain falls; and we see -
A jumble of used up nothings crowding
Forward; pushing into the candid light.
This space we thought ours, we filled with debris;
An unthinking testament. We fling

Poem 21 - A'Tuin

a turtle rises
behind cows in a field
it's shell made of grass
speckles of sagebrush dotting
this small, but great, A'Tuin

Poem 20 - This Easter

Easter eggs are so much fun!
This one's green, it must be mine.
This one's blue! I have this one!

I like chocolate, it is fine.
I can eat this egg and more!
Look - these cars are in a line!

Gramps! You must open up the door!
There's the snow for me to play in.
Why is smashing snow a chore?

I'll put the cars into this bin.
I can do this game all day,
If I do it fast, I'll win!
I wish that we could always stay.

Poem 19 - A Shell by Any Other Name

Lazarus Jewel Box
Should be something to preserve life without pox
A fancy coated piece of wood
Full of magical crystals that are good

Poem 18 - Weasley in Training

Back yard? Front yard? Go!
Escape fast and quietly
Mischief managed!

Poem 17 - An Easter Drive

A long road trip heading northward
Sounds of laughter and Gameboys heard
Mommy sleeps while Daddy drives on
This trip was not by choice but spurred

We go to see family, some well
Some ill - the cause of this spell
Visiting with pictures in hand
A brighter day with stories to tell

An Easter dinner to eat
Egg hunting in snow is a treat
Two long days' drive for stolen moments
For now we go back - bums in seats

Poem 16 - And Tired

Sitting in a car
Is fine for short
Car rides that last all day
Know what that causes?

Poem 15 - Truth In Advertising

This is not me, I do not yell
Relentless as an alarm bell
Unknown who is this horrid mom
This is not me, I do not yell
How hard is it to get to school, tell?

Lay down those toys, now listen please
I need to brush your teeth with ease
Each time I call, no answer comes
So your attention I will seize

Make each morning more stressful still
Open the cupboard and let it spill
This is not me, I do not yell
Hurry now to beat the bell
Each time I call, no answer comes

Release me from this pounding drum
Hurry now to beat the bell
Open the cupboard and let it spill
