Oak tree b&w

.. .

The old oak tree

makes an ancient eery sound

Its roots spread out

deep within the ground

.. .

The great old oak tree

is a worthy sight to see

I wish something like that

could be said of me

edenbray’s – Brave New World Collection ~ an introduction

#Authors Note : In keeping with the aims of this current Retrospective Anthology of written works by Edenbray since 2013 – to provide a rounded body of varied work from different time-scales – today’s selection is as accurate a rendition as memory serves of a piece written around 1970/71 – nearly 50 years ago!. The poem was originally one of five diverse pieces that were accepted for a publication entitled ‘This Britain’ which went on sale to the general public at that time.

This piece was the quieter and more reflective selection of the five which included four other Poems that challenged society, social values, politics, law, order and police enforcement, drug use, abuse and experience among other powerful issues. 

The Poems themselves were regrettably mislaid and I have since made repeated attempts to rewrite them – if not word for word – then with the aim of capturing the same optimism, verve, colour and intensity I remember they were so brim full of.

I now call these Poems my personal “Brave New World Poems” and I hope to publish the remaining four re-writes on this Blog-site very shortly under the title –       edenbraytoday
