My Alexei Poem
« on: January 11, 2006, 11:57:13 AM »
Hi, Here is a poem I wrote. Please tell me what you think of it. Here goes.  :-[

Olga saw Alexei sitting there
quietly and with not many a care.
"What are you doing here? " she asked.
"Just watching the sky and observing the grass.
Just thinking how much I love the summer
and will try to enjoy today
'cause tomorrow I
might not be able to watch the sun,
climb some trees, or play, and run."
"All right," she said I'll leave you be,
I just thought you might play with me."
"Of course," he said," I'll play with you,
and maybe we'll take pictures too."
Then the left and had a wonderful time.
This is how I will end this rhyme.

I am glad you posted your poem!  :) I would say the theme is nice, and you are pretty good, if not the next Emily Dickinson or something, I like to write poetry, and have written 1,000 poems or more roughly, since '03.. I like the theme, it is not something anybody could have thought of. ;)

I really liked it. You are very good at writing poetry. I've written a lot of poems myself but none on any of the Romanovs. I especially liked the part about Alexei enjoying looking at the sky and the grass. Somehow I just think he would have always noticed things like that and that he wouldhave tried  to enjoy each to the fullest because he did not know what tomorrow might bring. It was a very sweet poem.

Thanks for posting it here.

I haven't really thought up a title yet. What would be a good title?

Well, first of all, you have a beautiful poem there. I am envious because I am having a bad case of writer's block at the moment. I have compiled several of my own poems on Alexei to, hopefully in the near future, make a chat-book.

Secondly, I can tell you deeply care about the Romanovs from that poem...which I am sure warms a lot of hearts on these boards.

Thirdly, I can't think of a title, but oddly, whenever I re-read yours to think of one, the word "golden" keeps comming to mind...maybe something with that?

Hi everyone ;

Here is a poem which I found--an ode to Alexei.  I copied
and pasted it.  It is anonymous.

---Jesse



His was the clearest day, and his was the rain.

Bubbling, fresh, and vibrant with youthful joy ;

This blue-eyed lad oft grimaced with pain,

Possessed of a secret far too big for such a boy.




None could resist his fine enchanting smile—

Who could but love him for his impish mirth?

His light was with us, but just for awhile,

And who foresaw the end from his birth?




No sailor ever wore a nicer, nor finer bezkozirka,

Which bore in gold threads the ship STANDARDT

This mid-shipman—a true sailer and soldier by birth,

Won our love and then stole our hearts!




The strains of his balalaika can still be heard,

In rooms long empty at his royal Tsarskoe-selo.

Listen to the notes, and hear his words,

See his smile as he sings, lo, years ago.




Erect and straight in his Cossack uniform,

His playtime armies were just fun and pretend ;

Kind, compassionate, and yet a bit forlorn,

This boy stood taller than legends and men!
