Among the Amazon’s – A Rondeau

Among the Amazon’s live free
Not caring how man woman sees
Free to be as our soul hearts say
Free to love whomever you may
Free to let dreams life’s path decree
Among the Amazon’s

No war or strife all genders free
No world drawn by a single me
All love safe in this land’s hands lay
Among the Amazon’s

Honestly caring is the key
No love punished by death decree
Nor bi, trans, queer, poly and gay
Can’t wait for that bright rainbow day
When true heart’s can live and love free
Among the Amazon’s

Been wanting to write a Rondeau for some time now. And thinking of the opening lines prompt last week I know it’s because I haven’t found the right opening line for refrain.

Written for Poetics – War Poetry over at dVerse, and inspired by an age old conflict that’s highlighted in LGBT History Month. 

In Sweden we use the acronym HBTQ which stands for Homosexuals, Bisexuals, Transgender and Queer.

  1. There are so many prejudices, and so much fear and hatred in this world ChatRouge, that I’m not certain the human species will ever find the so overdue and essential balance of love, before it annihilates itself — but one can hope. Well written.

  2. Amen to this! One thing we have always loved about our annual 2 weeks in Provincetown, at the very tip of Cape Cod. It has long been a haven for the LGBT community….long before gay marriage was sanctioned in the U.S….long before it was approved by the majority. In Ptwon, everyone is free to be as they are. As the old song goes, “love is everywhere!”
