Semper Fidelis


  • Happiness

    Semper Fidelis

    Looking up into open sky blue
    Where clouds fluffed by and birds flew
    In a state of summer bliss
    I am to you Semper Fidelis

    Wandering open fields of green
    Meadowed colours can be seen
    Perfection reigns nothings amiss
    I am to you Semper Fidelis

    Swimming in blue-green turquoise
    Lapping ebbs a beautiful noise
    Happy that life has come to this
    I am to you Semper Fidelis

    Thanking you for who I am
    I give all to you this humble man
    What I see I’m ever grateful
    To be your servant Forever Faithful

    I am Semper Fidelis

    again great writing. What first caught my attention was the title because my son is a marine. He is so amazing and I'm beyond proud of him. And as you may know semper fedelis is the marine motto. great poem and apprpriatly worded I enjoyed.

    Excellent write =10.

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
