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 Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
