Another Worthless Poem

Another Worthless Poem
will go down in history
just like this.

As a splendorous moonbeam
makes way across the archway bridge,
that hops over a canal in Venice
where one might hear Nessun Dorma
departing a joyous young Italian lung
and carefree from fear to fashion
in white and black stripe-shirt
singing love song after love song
with all eyes upon its graceful melancholy
be sure you may find
another worthless poem drowning on its self.

And from double stack Victorian building windows
lit solely by candlelight
where the lady of the night
flaunt their flowers to the river
and passer by and sightseers
in needed of guts and memorabilia
straight through entrance
and up two flights of daring courage
as staring stairs are soon to learn
the price of freedom was left back home
and here in Venice we're truly free
to sing with pleasure
across moonbeams
on flowing streams
as gondolas push-way downstream
pass the umbrella's glory scene.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
