Happy Birthday my Friend ..


David Garcia Forés

A Maestro of the Brush and of the Pen,
He sat alone and faced the empty page,
Then inspiration struck his mind just when
Old Edgar Allan Poe described the rage
Of he who is bewitched by Vulture’s eye,
The creeping horror of the Red Deaths Masque,
Of how one was undone by Black Cat’s cry,
And of the King who would not ever ask,
But ridiculed, belittled and then forced
His loyal servant to perform deeds foul.
So these macabre tales now writhed and coursed
Through David’s veins, his mind an anguished howl,
His pen a blur, his brush a flash, pages
Changed into a Wonder of the Ages.
