POEMS

A poet sings of various things reflecting like a mirror. In literate lights some sharp insights

and draws their image clearer. A poet sings on worded wings each message to the hearer.

In fluent flights, a poet writes and draws the distance nearer. - OBJ "A Poet Sings"

Long Songs

By Oscar Brown, Jr.  

Oscar said, his Long Song poems are lengthy at various subjects.

OBJ said he “discovered” Shakespeare when he learned that the iambic pentameter meter which Shakespeare used was to be found also in the Blues. He ambitiously wrote his musical CRECIE entirely in verse, using this rhyming quatrain, sonnet form.  “Nearly two hundred sonnets came pouring forth from April 9 to May 10, 2003. They came as a result of the political thinking I had been doing at the time.” Here is a small offering of some OBJ Sonnets.  Check back here at OscarBrownJr.Org, as we will be releasing his set of sonnets called:  THE OUTPOURING.
