John Evans Returns with a Profound New Collection of Poetry

In his own words, he shares his thoughts on this moving collection: It was the day before Christmas and I was sitting in the hospital. How I got there was hardly a mystery. What to do next was another matter. Oddly enough, I felt calmer than I had been all day. I had spent my fear on writing all morning, ...

The Lady of the Tower: Fantasy Poetry from John Evans

The Lady of the Tower by John Evans I see her pass to and fro, Beyond the garden wall, Unshod upon the deathless grass, Like some fleeting nymph. Her raven eyes follow me, Whenever I stumble near, And seem to call my concealed name, As if I were her lord. But when I dare to speak to her, She silences ...

Avalon Revisited

Avalon Revisited by John Evans Around the lake- That emerald circle, Ringed by stones, The color of pitch, We waded through midnights, Silver passage, And strode together, Like two fleeting shades. Atop a ridge, Creased by roses, We watched the North Star, Dimly appear, Where she had lain hidden, Beneath broad clouds, Hurled from the shadow’s, Silent keeping. A field ...

The New Age

The New Age by John Evans   I am with you on the bridge, Of life and unlife, Where the shades of noon, Drift groggily toward Armageddon. I am with you at the pinnacle, Between feeling and knowing, Where the whispers of the wounded, Rise from the bowels of your contempt. I am with you on the ledge, Bleeding love ...

Shadows on the River

Shadows on the River by John Evans Shadows on the river, Pass before my eyes, Like visions of tomorrow, Few men realize. Shadows on the river, Drift on slowly by, Like the words of an old man, As the day begins to die. Shadows on the river, Recede into the haze, Like captions on a billboard, Trapped in some urban ...

Adam’s Lament

Adam’s Lament by John Evans Shall we find peace there, Lost in the garden, Where the river runs sweeter than the cold hard years? Shall we find peace there, Amerced in the meadow, In the green hemlock umbels, Tall and sad? I saw you walking over seven mountains, To the tree of knowledge dressed in white, Your hands open with ...

An Unexpected Surprise

An Unexpected Surprise By John Evans I pick up the crumpled paperback, Hardly legible in the fading lamplight, Beneath a pile of rubbish, In a cheap eclectic bookstore. The room is coated in dust, And I can feel my mind turning, Far from that cramped and narrow place, To the yellow taxi waiting for me outside. Should I buy it? ...

Muses on a Wooded Hollow

Muses on a Wooded Hollow by John Evans Beneath the tall elm tree where the shadow grows, I sat and pondered in silent distress, Admitting my faults to the wordless hollow, Confessing my mind to a glade of wild grass. No visitor stirred my solemn retreat, Or bothered to mark me on their journey hence, Save the creatures of that ...
