I am a poet who has both been published and self published. All work on this blog is all copyright Alex Ness. While I make very little money from my work I am technically a professional. Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

I bid you peace.

Je ne regrette pas la douleur, car il m'a fait plus forte

URANUS, King of the Sky, Father of Time

URANUS the Magician by Gustav Holst

Distant, afar
Away from view
Yet always watching
Uranus father of time
Father of the pantheon
Born of Chaos
Arisen from the nothing
Mother earth
Gaia his bride
Fearing the children
Gaia bore him
He consigned them
To Tartarus
Where Gaia freed them
To castrate and destroy
And cast him away
Into the sea
Washing him
From view
