He Who Would Be King

From Princess-Diana genes
though William and Kate
son George makes his way
into the world of royalty
bringing to life dreams
each Commoner dreams
of the world a better place.

His cries are the cries of nations
asking darkness to yield to light
a morsel to be fed, water to sip
swaddling clothes, safe and tight
growing pains shared, by love surrounded
playful moments in which to delight
future to live, safe, well-grounded.

So much weight placed upon
shoulders of our gentle youth
to right woeful wrongs yet done
spread hope, promise of truth
innocence becomes its purveyor
wears precious prince-charming smile
silver-spooned, wrapped in lace.

Welcome George Alexander Louis.
In world history, make your place .

Hello gnj4u

A warmly written narrative indeed. I hope by the time the new born Prince reaches his three score years and ten, that the world is a much better and safer world than it is now.

Perhaps by the 2080's mankild will have learned to solve international disputes without resort to wars, perhaps poverty and famine will be a thing of the past, possibly the burgeoning world population will be under control and manageable.

Who knows, corporate and personal greed may have been replaced by genuine efforts to save the planet...

It will take a great, great deal of effort and resolve from all parts of the world for the hopes and wishes I mention to bear any fruit - My fervent wish is that the infant Prince George Alexander Louis lives to see all the above come to pass.

A delightful welcome to world for the child, and from way across the Atlantic... Many thanks, Joy.

I am sure Diana is warmly smiling down on her first grandchild angel
With the genes he processes , I am confident this young prince will do very well indeed by the time he becomes King thumbs up

Dear Joy,

This is a truly beautiful tribute to our dearest Prince George. I felt rather sad watching William holding his Son, I could not stop thinking about his Mum and how very proud she would have been. Thank you for sharing your lovely poem. hug purple heart

Hi Joy, this is really wonderful and makes a huge statement about how things need to change and each generation has the burden (if you will) or the chance to make such a difference in the lives of so many. I will message you privately about a thought I wanted to share. Have a good one, Celtic

Keep writing. That is what makes a good poet. Take the things that few notice and make them notice. Show them how things are passing them by that matter. To me, a poet does just that and brings the whole world into clearer focus. HUGS!~wine
