Between The Two Rivers


When you drift you will thrift!
So, do not thrift and be sentenced to death;

When you rift you will drift!
So, do not rift and be buried;

When you shift you will rift!
So, do not shift and be in hot waters;

When you lift you will sift!
So, do not sift and be weakened;

Lift up your memories from your misery!
And, do not shift and be raped;
For, you are torn between two rivers.

Thorn, torn!
Bewteen two rivers;
So, lift up your memories from your misery.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
