Bagordare

bellissimo was the cry she

attached to her mother’s

gentle tones, not for her the

ordinary, a breaker of all

rules, from the cradle

desirous of lemon scented visions,

attracted to the unruly and

riotous noises that only a truly deaf

ear has any chance of hearing

***

bagodare is Italian and means to carouse, to revel

I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

  1. I liked the way you let the words speak to each other, creating an effect and especially liked the turn at the end. Well done!

  3. ..sadly, most teens these days were like that.. attracted to the scent liberation and going beyond the norms… always misinterpret and unconscious from the tireless care of their parents… i am glad i’ve changed and picked the way to maturity.. thanks for the poem!(:

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
