Angel and Beast

We could changes our ways.
That is, if we wanted to.
But we rest between
Angel and Beast.
We know our flaws,
We see them all around,
But we will never change ourselves.
We rest uneasily between
An angel and a beast.

    It is good that you write about useful things in a clear manner. You do not easte the ink in your pen.

    A nice poem, but I feel that someone of your ability would have wanted to explore the ideas of the angel and the beast some more. Compared to other poems of yours the imagery is usually more vivid. However, I enjoyed the poem nonetheless. (Report) Reply

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.
