Room with a View

This poem was published in 2010 in the online magazine, Danse Macabre. It was inspired from a picture I took of Shakespeare’s childhood home. It’s a simple rhymed poem.  

Room with a View

Hark! who looks out yonder window with woe
A lover’s quarrel of footprints in snow
‘Tis lost thy source which aches within thy heart
Though world has warned by calling thee a tart
Ignored thy ignorant words spit out of spite
Found thee defending that grew into a fight
Is thou love really a harlot in disguise,
Or how thee praised with acts of idolized?
How shall thee find the answer to thy prayers
To silence forever along with thy tears?

Inspiration and Photography,


  1. I love that picture. The poem fits the gothic architecture well.
