Poetry by Brigitte Goetze

The Ballad of the Damsel and the Knight

Beware the knight who goes to fight
to free the damsel from her plight.
Her plight, she openly abhors, 304 more words

The River

Picking the Red Gooseberry

Gently part the branches,
and—coming from below—
look for the burgundy globe,
the one engorged with sweet juices.

Do not deceive yourself,
such pickings are not easy, 28 more words

Oh, Gorgeous!

Nubile June,
preening green,
buttercup glad,
Rosa rugosa
swirling pink,
luscious wink.
