Hippogriff By Joseph Charles Kennedy

Hippogriff By Joseph Charles Kennedy To look at this fictitious steed You’d think some mixed-up farmer Had crossed an eagle with a horse.

The Soldier Addresses His Body By Edgell Rickword

The Soldier Addresses His Body By Edgell Rickword I shall be mad if you get smashed about, we’ve had good times together, you and I; although you groused a bit when luck was out, say a girl turned us down, or we went dry. But there’s a world of things we haven’t done, countries not […]

Thought The Paraclete By Anonymous

Thought The Paraclete By Anonymous As some bright archangel in vision flies Plunged in dream-caught spirit immensities, Past the long green crests of the seas of life, Past the orange skies of the mystic mind Flew my thought self-lost in the vasts of God.

Folded-wing hippogriffs crowd the paved shadows, they’ll be realised lake from rill to shingle to humpback bridge to this world, whose cinematic stiff, jewelled assembly, scurrying through light, summoned, signs undismayed. The courtesan’s shadow scuds & dragonflies, dragonflies float. Rain clouds rub, […]

Orlando Furioso By Ludovico Ariosto

Orlando Furioso By Ludovico Ariosto No empty fiction wrought by magic lore, But natural was the steed the wizard pressed; For him a filly to griffin bore; Hight hippogryph. In wings and beak and crest, Formed like his sire, as in the feet before; But like the mare, his dam, in all the rest. Such […]
