April Is National Poetry Month!

April Is National Poetry Month!


Today I shine the spotlight on a brethren by the name of Albert McClure. The internet has provided little information on Albert. What I have established and what is evident is that Albert McClure is a talented poet.

My Mind is a Kingdom
ALBERT MCCLURE

My mind to me is a Kingdom
unlimited in its scope,
For in it can be found the realm
of Fear – of Joy – of Hope.
And in it can be found the towns
experience has built.
Each ruled by some powerful King
of Righteousness or Guilt.
Along the roads that run its breadth
some caravan always wends its way,
A wish – a word – a new idea – some new sensations of the day
that travels swiftly to its port.
And many times in my domain
some furious battle will be waged,
the fight of those base passions
that turn all men in rage.
My mind to me is a Kingdom
unlimited in its scope,
for in it can be found the realm
of Fear – of Joy – of Hope…
