    William Blake is actually my first love (poets) ! I remember this poem from high school, this being the first to capture my interest. 'Poison Tree', to me, holds a very strong message for us all as it shows us the seemingly innocent yet seductively black side of malice and hate once fed and nourished in our hearts. Thanks to dear William, this poem has made me resist many a 'tempation' toward malice, reaping a more fruitful result of peace: -) (Report) Reply

    I found this poem after Garrison Keillor read it on his radio segment. It moved me greatly as a friend of mine is trying to hurt me and I am needing strength to fight back. This poem made me stop and reassess the problem....and sadly, gave me hope to continue. This battle will not have good consequences for my friend - now foe. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
