Speramus Meliora sonnet poems

Photo by AlicePopkorn

Hope is a flower growing in the heart
A tender thing that has its roots in stone
Hope asks for nothing for its growth to start
Except, perhaps, just to be left alone.

That bud of hope does no one any harm
But silently lifts up the weary eye
Hope keeps the meek heart feeling safe and warm
Gives comfort, and a reason not to die

Now there are those who see things just one way
They see hope in the garden of the soul
And they think that they have the right to say
“I’ll root it out and call it weed control.”

Regardless of what facts you might possess
To kill that bloom is murder, nothing less.

Davis started his career as an opera and concert singer (which he still does,) and then moved into commercials as well as classical music Radio. He has written poetry, always to a form. He has written over 250 sonnets, and a number of triolets, because it's fun.Davis still sings Classical Music as a soloist often, very often with orchestra, because he's asked to, and because it's fun.Davis also often appears as an entertainer singing songs by many composers as well as his own material, which is almost all funny, and almost always politically progressive.Years ago, Davis was introduced at a performance using this phrase: "He's famous, and not many people know that." He now uses that as his motto.... because it's true, because he never takes himself too seriously and because it's fun.
