    One of the greatest poems in the English language! . Avowedly non-political and imaginative. MM (Report) Reply

    I'm quite sure that poem wasn't Pulitzer material, though, rolls of boredom! I pass on this one! ! (Report) Reply

    Anaphora, the name of this title is so rich and beautiful that I am certain few understand.
    An anaphora is a poetical device, if you will-a repetition of words, that creates a sentimentality towards those words.
    In this poem the anaphors are 'mortal' and 'endless', so please, reread this poem and pay special attention to those two words.
    Elizabeth Bishop was a beautiful genius, and this poem is a true example to that. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
