Birthday Poem

Happy birthday
The festive occasion
Wishing me well
This gaping greedy hole
Too deep for an almond tree

Wonderful birthday
I’m the oldest in my family
The rest have died
Seventy two years old
Am I immortal?

Blissful birthday
Carefree October month
A drifting ice floe
Breaking up in the ocean
Who will rescue me now?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
