A Beautiful Novel


No, Is it a game of fate?
No, See; the arrow that hit the hat,
Here, for me-
All are known-
Wrapped with false happiness,
Sorrow groped, somewhere hid,

Achievements! false dignity,
Formal affinity,
Hazy-high- fly,
Only sly! cry-

Tell me who don't need love?
Everybody is a lover
Yet love's boundaries un-measured

Everybody dyeing for the self,
Ah! Life for them-
'A beautiful novel'

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
