Archeologist: Best Option

Archeologist: someone whose career lies in ruins
From deep earth to Egyptian sands
Archaeologists are the best husbands
Any woman can desire
The older she gets, the more he does admire
He will find new meaning to act
With caution he will react
Check you out with caution
Handle you with due dedication

{This was written after a random thinking on archeologists while travelling alone in bus in Delhi.}

    hi there, i wrote a long comment several days ago, after reading 'archeologists' poem, but when i tried to send it to you the site kept saying i was using an incorrect verification code. darn! so i'll make this comment shorter.
    i enjoyed the poem, especially the use of career lies in ruins, as it brought to mind two images/two meanings for the phrase. that was clever. also i esp. enjoyed the part about archaeologists admiring a woman more as she gets older. that also fit cleverly into the setting of an archeologist's work. and i see you used both spellings of archeologist. i wonder if that was intentional.
    thanks for the comment you sent about my poem, by the way.
    i have one suggestion for all poets, including myself, native english-speaker or someone like you. always be careful to proofread if you don't want someone like me to think a writer is careless. (Report) Reply

    I think that you are at your best here when you search for well crafted lines like the first one here. Really enjoyed this one not just because of its cleverness but because you built a character and developed a theme all the way through. I think some of your poems like Democracy in India could be become much more stellar if you tried to follow this strategy more. (Report) Reply

    Interesting thought patterns to your writing.
    Finding beauty in ruin and learning from the past.
    So then, should not one fall in love with a plastic surgeon. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
