George Barker (poet)

From Quotes
In Texas, years ago, almost all of the oil came from surface operations. Then someone got the idea that there were greater sources of supply deeper down. A well was drilled five thousand feet deep. The result? A gusher. Too many of us operate on the surface. We never go deep enough to find supernatural resources. The result is, we never operate at our best. More time and investment is involved to go deep but a gusher will pay off.

The True Confession of George Barker

  • I, born in Essex thirty-four
    Essentially sexual years ago,
    Stepped down, looked around, and saw
    I had been cast a little low
    In the social register
    For the friends whom I now know.
    Is a constable a mister?
    Bob's your uncle, even so.

Turn on your side and bear the day to me

  • Turn on your side and bear the day to me
    Beloved, sceptre-struck, immured
    In the glass wall of sleep. Slowly
    Uncloud the borealis of your eye
    And show your iceberg secrets, your midnight prizes
    To the green-eyed world and to me.

Summer Song

  • My one, my one, my only love,
    Hide, hide your face in a leaf,
    And let the hot tear falling burn
    The stupid heart that will not learn
    The everywhere of grief.
