    Fated @ Jeline Loh

    It’s been a long time
    Ages since I knew you
    Somehow a stranger to me
    It felt like I have known you


    Although I really don’t
    Ardent am I to find out more
    Time will tell yet it won’t
    Curiosity is still a core


    Yet now we spoke again
    Someday our path will cross
    With a crystal glass of champagne
    Somehow we can have a toss


    If fate is something we hold
    We shouldn’t let it go
    That is what we were told
    It wouldn’t be long ago

    @Claudia..if you want your voice to be heard, then write like never-before. And don't expected to get heard immediately, most poets got heard, years after their demise. As for me, I don't write to get heard..I write to express my feelings...but if I happened to get heard in the process...then, it's all good! (Report) Reply

    I am in total agreement with Robin and Juan. Shakespeare has enough publicity and has had for centuries- how about some of our novice poets like myself- we would like to be heard also- this year 2011 and we need our voices to be heard as well- (Report) Reply

    I think Claudia and Robin are on to something, poemhunter could have our poems as poems of the day, and Kevin Straw could have a field day cutting us to ribbons. Worth a try. (Report) Reply

    William Shakespeare. A classic favourite poet of mine, along with John Keats and William Wordsworth. Clearly a brilliant writer, world famous...my question is...why are such famous poems posted here? I thought this was for the not-as-famous poets...who just want to share their words, their feelings, and open a door into insight...Unless I am completely wrong and this is another wikipedia type of site....

    Just thought Poem of Day should be for more real poets...

    What a trite poem- why do you always choose poems written by these ancient and famous poets like Shakespeare and Emily Dickinson? ? ? More modern poets have a voice to share also. None of these so called poems of the day make any sense- just a jumble of words as the writers must have been drunk or stoned when they wrote them! ! ! ! I am beginning to wonder why some of these ancient well known poets ever made it so well in the first place because the poems they wrote are either just plain trite or make no sense! ! ! !

    I have read A Mid Summer Night's Dream several times, the first in high school, and after that just for the sheer beauty of the play. Therefore let me say, and it takes a lot to say this, Kevin Straw is absolutely right. Oh my what have I done. Terrence hit the proverbial nail on the head. Oh by the way Michael didn't Conan live in the hyperbolic age? Oh excuse me that was the hyborean age, my bad. (Report) Reply

    When I played the part of Shakespeare's Puck in in the early 70s, I had little knowledge of beauty in words arising out of technicalities. I just flowed with words like water on stage to the enjoyment of the audience and fellow actors and actresses. So just leave me there in the headquarters of nostalgia. Thanks Daddy Shakespeare!

    Never you mind, Terence! You demonstrate almost daily your own lack of discernment in your hyperbolic ventings! (Report) Reply
