TWO CONCLUDING POEMS.

MY POEM FOR WORLD POETRY DAY.
MY EXPRESSION CAN BE SEEN.

I expressed myself. It’s there if you see.
If I gave a recital, you could hear.
Or, if recording kept permanently,
available after I’ve disappeared.

It is my poetry and points of view.
Are the sounds that emanated from me.
Been my creativity that’s come through.
More than I anticipated would be.

I speak proudly of the work I have done.
It can be seen as my contribution.
An offering from me to anyone
who finds pleasure in the word profusion.

Or, indeed, a relevance they perceive.
Can hear my voice. All you need do, is read.

LEGACY.

It’s all I can do. Leave some great poems.
I see it as my legacy; my ’gift’.
On the page; on the internet; showing,
And giving the reader a thoughtful lift.

It will probably amount to nothing
in the future when I have disappeared.
But it gives me pleasure imagining
that they stay around, and may be revered.

Even if only one were to survive,
and that be without accreditation,
I would be happy that it stayed alive,
a tribute to my imagination.

As I do them, I know they’re meant to be
a bequest, by me, as my legacy.
