Untitled poem by Lee Towles

I’m posting this poem written by my husband this morning, because he has that rare poetic gift of not writing but more like channeling completely finished poems from his internal reservoir of art.

It was so much better back then
When there were no fences or defenses
When the light of the stars was young
And the songs of all creatures were sung

It’s so much better now
That we can live our lives through devices
And have a pill for every crisis
With every mystery solved
And every sin absolved

It was so much better back then
When late night stories were told
And we let the magic unfold
When our ancestors would smile
At the birth of every child

It’s so much better now
That there’s a solution to every threat
The entire agenda is set
Where convenience is on parade
Because our lives are readymade

It will be so much better when
We rediscover the enchantment within
When we listen to the infinite songs
That have been playing all along
When the light of the stars now old
Tells the story that can finally be told
