    I agree with you...
    I can never read story
    and I have never read...
    I don't know how people can read...
    At the end...one will die one will live
    Let us live and read your poems...!
    I hope I find time to read...!

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
