Poets Speak: Rob Levasseur


Welcome to Poets Speak.  A feature dedicated to poets performing their poetry in an audio medium.  I simply LOVE that we can hear our poets bringing their poetry alive!

I have also created a brand new soundcloud account for justruminating.  Here I will be posting all the Poet Speaks Poets, as well as meditation audio, chillout ambient audio and who knows what else.  Check it out HERE, and be sure to follow!

If you would like your readings to be included, simply visit the new Poets Speak Page, and fill in the submission form.

My first ever reading of one of my poems…

Dust decays the minds remains,
sullies clarity while slow it stains-
Slow it stalls each calm refrain
scowls so deep my new disdain.

Cloudless day, yet chill surrounds,
then quiet falls upon the grounds-
Eases silence until all around
I’m lost among the words I found.

Gathering close the gloom foretells
echoes of the church-yard bells-
Quiet then both the vale and dell
so quickly, so sudden, so it fell.

Stark the darkness heavily weighs
dances resolutely thus it stays-
Along grey gravel does it play
then dead to earth it kills the day.

Stalks away and leaves unkind
unravels deeds, stops the mind-
Once taut now the heart so finds
purpose loosened it slow unwinds.

Fade cold sun beyond the trees!
Rush to earth upon your knees-
So small, so small you are to me
still stoic though, your majesty.

  1. Loved this Rob! Closed my eyes and just listened. Thank you for picking up this idea and running with it. It also made me happy to hear the New England in your voice. I moved to Massachusetts when I was three so my accent is only heavy when I am tired or with my cousins for a few days.

        1. That’s ok, I’ll pick it up from there. No submissions so far but 3 of the 20 poets I emailed said I could link to their work, so at least we will have a few different folks to start


I Would Love Your Thoughts!
