Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Hello reader and glorious followers,

 

New spoken poetry video highlighting the powerful and underrepresented Elizabeth Browning. Link below and as always feel free to comment here or on the youtube page.

The Queen of Desolation(Based on Paper Crown by Alec Benjamin)

Ups and Downs,
The song makes it last,
It calls, to those with the frailest past
Of wrongs and rights, smiles and bitesThe queens fable show’s, what’s hidden below,
The sagging castle, those without the know
Sad and alone, without your court
The song arrives, you can’t abort

You’re taken on, your saddest journey
Of faulty roads, without a hurry
The hidden war, drives the flurry
When weakness roars, of courage buried

The tallest towers, fall from weakness within
The valiant queens, dethroned by sin
The song calls, you try to hold it in
But your heart stalls, mind in a spin.

(note: This poem was more difficult than at first thought, his music is already poetic and I found this rather hard.)
Video of song it’s based on:

Joseph Addison

Hello reader and glorious followers,

 

I’ve completed a selected reading of the famous essayist Joseph Addison. His lesser known poetry I felt was a great starting point, and as he begins with A, tomorrow I”ll be working on Elizabeth Browning’s outstanding achievements in poetry. Enjoy and please feel free to comment here or on youtube.

 

Started a Spoken Poetry channel

Hello reader and my ever so gracious followers,

 

I’ve started a youtube channel for those who’d rather listen to poetry, need sleep, or even for those who are visually impaired/blind. I completed my first personal set of poems today and plan on posting classic poems throughout the next week to build a foundation. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwZgZUICQLFVhZ4BPbsxktg that’s the link, and if you have a listen please let me know either here or there. Thank you.

 

Joshua.
