Little King of Sorrows


Color Blind


Roses are red.
But violets not blue.
They're purple you dummy.
You laugh cause it's true.

Guess sky is now yellow.
Our rivers are pink.
Forests are turquoise,
If that's how we think.

My eyes are now red,
cause I'm feeling so blue.
I loved this old saying,
Till I thought it all through.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
