    hey readers, I KNOW who this poem was written FOR. ruthie, my friend, told ME. so there! see if you can guess who.
    i like it. some may think born again refers to a religious experience, but i don't think this can be said, unless one interprets religious loosely. i liked the change from before all that - - - to just like that.
    yikes! cat scratch. ouch. i recall when my little girl got a scratch under her eye from our doggy. oops! she was walking by then (i mean the child, not the dog; well, the dog was walking by then also) .
    thanks, ruth, for sharing. :) bri (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
