~The Dragon Flies' Lair VII~
January 8, 2004 | bentfeather, poets of The Dragon Flies' Lair

Posted on 01/08/2004 11:04:47 AM PST by Soaring Feather

My Dragon Fly and Me

If I could be a Dragon Fly
and wing my way through the sky
I would never be shy
just me and my Dragon Fly!

By moonlight we ride the wind
chase the comets tail for fun
by day we would hide from the sun
our fragile wings would come undone

On darkest nights we would use
fireflies as our guide
we would dip and we would glide
through the heavens open wide
and scatter diamonds in the night sky
my Dragon Fly and I...

And we would wing past our lovers
silent in the night...
to kiss their face in our flight
much to their surprise and delight
my Dragon Fly and me in sight...

Such a view do we share
away up here in the air
of breezes soft through our hair
my Dragon Fly and me a pair...

Freepathon series.

FREEPATHON

Freedom

Freedom isn’t free you know,
But freedom can’t be bought.
The bill is never paid in full,
The final fight’s not fought.
We fight for freedom everyday,
The battle’s worth the cost.
If ever we should stop the fight,
Our freedoms will be lost.
So click that donor window now,
Sign up and show you care.
FreeRepublic needs your help,
It doesn’t run on air.

Conspiracy Guy 1/06/04


It Feels Good

I’ve always been a donor,
For any worthwhile cause.
Toys for Tots, the USO,
Beards for Santa Claus.
I’ve found FR a year ago,
I really like it here.
I’ve given every quarter,
I made a change this year.
I’m now a monthly donor,
I just signed up today.
But I still like the Freepathons,
I guess I’m weird that way.
Laura Earl she signed up too,
We often Freep with yall.
So help in any way you can,
Keep FR for us all.

Conspiracy Guy 1/6/04

Don’t forget my Birthday is Jan 15,
I want a pony.



Freeping

I freep the most while I’m at work,
No DSL at home.
My job pays well but it’s a bore,
So round FR I roam.
I post my poems and chat a bit,
And read a lot of news.
Most freepers share some common traits,
But we all have our views.
I’ll stay here till they run me off,
Because I’m having fun.
Free Republic is my home,
I like the way it’s run.

Conspiracy Guy 1/07/04

Join the dollar a day crowd now!
I spend more than that on coffee.
I’ll be 50 on January 15th and I
want a pony.


Proud

I’m glad to see so many folks,
That truly show they care.
You open up your pocket book,
For FR you are there.
We keep this baby running,
On money that we send.
And every penny is a help,
So keep it coming in.
Give today what you can spare,
I’m proud that I know you.
I wonder where the funding comes from,
Over at DU.

Conspiracy Guy 1/07/04

Well, what the heck. Might as well post a poem. :)

Longing
Matthew Arnold
Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

Come, as thou cam'st a thousand times,
A messenger from radiant climes,
And smile on thy new world, and be
As kind to others as to me!

Or, as thou never cam'st in sooth,
Come now, and let me dream it truth,
And part my hair, and kiss my brow,
And say, "My love, why sufferest thou?"

Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.

The Manly Man Code For Life

This is it. So it has been written, so it shall be ... The CODE:

1. Thou shall not rent the movie "Chocolate".

2. Under no circumstances may two men share an umbrella.

3. Any man who brings a camera to a bachelor party may be legally killed and eaten by his fellow partygoers.

4. When you are queried by a buddy's wife, girlfriend, mother, father, priest, shrink, dentist, accountant, or dog walker, you need not and should not provide any useful information whatsoever as to his whereabouts. You are permitted to deny his very existence.

5. Unless he murdered someone in your immediate family, you must bail a friend out of jail within 12 hours.

6. You may exaggerate any anecdote told in a bar by 50 percent without recrimination; beyond that, anyone within earshot is allowed to call BULLSH*T. (Exception: When trying to pick up a girl, the allowable exaggeration rate rises to 400 percent) .

7. If you've known a guy for more than 24 hours, his sister is off-limits forever.

8. The minimum amount of time you have to wait for another guy who's running late is 5 minutes. For a woman, you are required to wait 10 minutes for every point of hotness she scores on the classic 1-10 scale.

9. Bitching about the brand of free beer in a buddies refrigerator is forbidden. You may gripe if the temperature is unsuitable.

10. No man is ever required to buy a birthday present for another man.
In fact, even remembering a friend's birthday is strictly optional and slightly gay.

11. Agreeing to distract the ugly friend of a hot babe your buddy is trying to hook up with is your legal duty. Should you get carried away with your good deed and end up having sex with the beast, your pal is forbidden to speak of it, even at your bachelor party.

12. Before dating a buddy's ex, you are required to ask his permission and he, in return is required to grant it.

13. Women who claim they "love to watch sports" must be treated as spies until they demonstrate knowledge of the game and the ability to pick a buffalo wing clean.

14. If a man's zipper is down, that's his problem --- you didn't see nothin'.

15. The universal compensation for buddies who help you move is beer.

16. A man must never own a cat or like his girlfriend's cat.

17. Your girlfriend must bond with your buddy's girlfriends within 30 minutes of meeting them. You are not required to make nice with her gal pal's significant dick-heads --- low-level sports bonding is all the law requires.

18. When stumbling upon other guys watching a sports event, you may always ask the score of the game in progress, but you may never ask who's playing.

19. When your girlfriend/wife expresses a desire to fix her whiney friend up with your pal, you may give her the go-ahead only if you'll be able to warn your buddy and give him time prepare excuses about joining the priesthood.

20. It is permissible to consume a fruity chick drink only when you're sunning on a tropical beach... and its delivered by a topless supermodel... and it's free.

21. Unless you're in prison, never fight naked.

22. A man in the company of a hot, suggestively dressed woman must remain sober enough to fight.

23. If a buddy is outnumbered, out manned, or too drunk to fight, you must jump into the fight. Exception: If within the last 24 hours his actions have caused you to think, "What this guy needs is a good a$$-whoopin", then you may sit back and enjoy.

24. Phrases that may NOT be uttered to another man while weight lifting:
"C'mon, give me one more! Harder!"
"Another set and we can hit the showers."

25. Never hesitate to reach for the last beer or the last slice of pizza, but not both. That's just plain mean.

26. If you compliment a guy on his six-pack, you better be referring to his beer.

27. Never join your girlfriend/wife in dissing a buddy, except when she's withholding sex pending your response.

28. Never talk to a man in the bathroom unless you're on equal footing: either both urinating or both waiting in line. In all other situations, a nod is all the conversation you need.

29. If a buddy is already singing along to a song in the car, you may not join him ... too gay.

30. Before allowing a drunken friend to cheat on his girl, you must attempt one intervention. If he is able to get on his feet, look you in the eye, and deliver a "#%*@ OFF!" You are absolved of your of responsibility.

Boy snippy I missed the boat this time. The posts were at 996 before I knew what was going on.

Well, I have a friend who uses my computer to get Webmail while their computer is down. I guess this is a legitimate excuse.

Change Upon Change
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning


Five months ago the stream did flow,
The lilies bloomed within the sedge,
And we were lingering to and fro,
Where none will track thee in this snow,
Along the stream, beside the hedge.
Ah, Sweet, be free to love and go!
For if I do not hear thy foot,
The frozen river is as mute,
The flowers have dried down to the root:
And why, since these be changed since May,
Shouldst thou change less than they.

And slow, slow as the winter snow
The tears have drifted to mine eyes;
And my poor cheeks, five months ago
Set blushing at thy praises so,
Put paleness on for a disguise.
Ah, Sweet, be free to praise and go!
For if my face is turned too pale,
It was thine oath that first did fail, --
It was thy love proved false and frail, --
And why, since these be changed enow,
Should I change less than thou.

*What's it gonna take, till my baby's alright?*
The vines twisted around slightly and hissed. The dog had just gone by and ... used the ground in an offensive manner! The ivy shudddered, mammals.. such disgusting creatures! The mailman came up the stoop humming to himself at the same moment that the ivy couldn't take it anymore.
Tendrils shot outward! Tearing and rending bone and sinew! Roots took hold and amid the crackle of bone, the ivy ate. A sudden thirst for the blood of moving creatures filled the ivy with rage. First, though, the dog must pay...

Yes, the dog must pay..

1 part of knowing who you aren't.
1 part of knowing what you want.
1 part of knowing who you wish to be.
1 part of knowing what you already have before you.
1 part of choosing wisely from what you have before you.
1 part of gratitude for everything you have.


Mixing Instructions -

Combine ingredients together gently and carefully.
Using faith and vision, mix together with strong
belief of the outcome, until finely blended.
Use thoughts, words and actions for best results.
Bake until blessed.
Give thanks again.

Yields unlimited servings

Interesting, Thanks!
Wonder what my evil barcalounger story short will inspire..

It waited for it's prey to come by, it's leather upholstry tempting it's vitcims to their doom. Waiting with it's siren song of comfort and relaxation to lure some weak willed to take a seat... Suddenly they are stuck! The chair won't let them go! Slowly it starts it's feeding process.. the victim feels their legs and arms grow weak as the chair saps their strength. Then it devours their soul once they are asleep and defenseless....
And everyone thought that barcaloungers were harmless luxuries.

Freedom

A right ordained by a God some fear enough hate,
and worth fighting for forevermore where ever it is attacked.
Something so bright and good that it illuminates the soul,
of every free loving person God put upon this world.
A spirit, and a feeling that motivates standing true and tall,
and leaves the lesser ones in shadowed gloom.
A need that burns within and drives a prisoner to find the way,
to reach the open world where their spirit aches to play.
The right to have a family and watch them grow to maturity,
and add their own steps on the ladder to Freedom’s upward climb.
The drive to be the best you can and the pride of attempting perfection,
knowing that you stand on the shoulders of those before, awaiting your turn.
Freedom is a scary thing for its totally alive with all the chances you must take,
to find the treasures only it will ever truly provide.
It is a part of all mankind, yet some shy from its demands,
sad to say I understand and I nod as I stride on by!

Now Fragile Heart

Now fragile heart
bruised and splintered
in tiny fragments...
My love once feared discovery
can bitterness hope for a purpose?

Was desire the plan
or an ocean within us
and soft as a sand pearl?

Midnight blue
was that you
did our dance end well
shall we take a chance on love again
or shall we let it rest
and cool for another age
and in different colors we
will dance our dance
When the stars have burned out
and new planets sing
or shall we take wing and fly
just the two us, you and I
My Midnight blue??

Such a lovely hue
This midnight blue
Our dance ended very well
Yet my head still says, "No,
Please, don't suffer so,
Love, for you, has been hell."
But my heart knows the truth
That, though love is uncouth
The thrill of the dance is sublime
"Look into her eyes,
And you must realize,
Romance is the goal of your rhyme."

Stars grow cold
Planets spin into darkness
But it matters not
For she knows what I need
Is to simply feel needed
So, yes, I will join you
My midnight blue!

*What do I have?

i was adrift
on your sea
i remember you
wanting to glide the surf
like a seagull
lost in the details of involvement
while I was looking
for your anchorage
ignoring on lookers
in their casual walk
all to familiar with the
residue of an audience
and of tides withdrawn
in secret coves
with sweet grass
forming a perfect blind
*What do I have?
