Rookie (November 29th 1995 / Lewes)

(A poem of my island) 2- The man with no life


He does nothing all day
He just sits there and stares
He has nothing to say
And no one who cares.

He once had a wife,
(Or that’s what I heard)
She ruined his life
Now he won’t say a word.

And who is this man with this trouble and strife
He has no name, but the man with no life.

    This is a good poem. it has a pleasant resonance. Your thought is carried through and summed up nicely. I might suggest one change in the last line of the second verse. Instead of 'No', how about 'Now'.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
