    Gannon - Poetry Contest 23 winner

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Torana, Oct 30, 2007.

    Gannon - Vice Versa


    If black were but a colour and a hue,

    a dark perspective and an omen true,

    then its white would still be but the contrast:

    a sign for the hopeful; how long to last?


    Would it not matter for zebra and chess

    to be reversed and also vice versa?

    But what of a white shadow? A black light?

    What therefore, god forbid, if day were night?


    Enter the honest wolf and cue raven;

    compare the hero and that unshaven

    unspeakable thief with a stolen moon

    and its solemn night sky still half star-strewn.


    A battle and a victor, a high prize:

    the return of black sight to his white eyes.

    The dark-hearted scarred raven flees in flight

    the proud wolf howls in his eternal night.
