Heaven - a poem by Robert SegarraA poem in free verse and rhyme, written in the style of epic poems of the past, of a mythical man, and a mythical land named Heaven. Readers and admirers of such poems as Rime Of The Ancient Mariner and the Arthurian legends will surely enjoy this piece, as it follows Heaven as he both inspires and builds his own version of Camelot, inviting everyone who shares his dream to join him - not realizing that this will eventually lead to his paradise encountering difficulties as it struggles to survive in the face of often negative and hostile outside forces.

Author's Notes

Written in free verse and in rhyme, and in the tradition of classical poetry, Heaven - A Poem by Robert Segarra, details the story of a mythical place and a mythical man by the name of Heaven. The poem follows the evolution of the appearance of the man, which coincides with the establishment of the perfect place on Earth, as told to the reader by a character in the poem that becomes the scribe for Heaven, and gives a first-person account of the history of Heaven, which ultimately includes his downfall. Heaven is both a chronicle and an elegy to a better place and time, and a highly enjoyable standard for us all to live up to, and it delivers this message in an entertaining manner, never preachy.
