A Poet's Advice


The tone that I set
Is surely hard to forget
Mock it and trust me
You will regret

My words have will
And they are stronger still
When others fail
They have their fill

Mixed up and messy may
Be how you define what I say
However, they will continue
To live on through the day

My words are my friends
So listen to the message they send
Because even when you are gone
They still are far from the end.

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,
