A Poetry Book


Strictly speaking
I am an entertainer
Strictly speaking
I'm a recluse

I'm talent hiding
in a chamber
staying hidden
not letting loose

Strictly speaking
I'm a preacher
Strictly speaking
I'm plain dumb

Always ready
with an answer
my advice
is rule of thumb

So speaking to you
in this manner
shows how
little I can act

Shows how little
I hide in me
Tells you one thing
that's a fact

I am confused
and I am vexing
over what I really am
Am i getting in
hot water
Am I really just a clam

I guess the answer
is within me
I should go
and take a look

For hidden in my
lost confusion
is a perfect
poetry Book

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
