Current White House Resident


Robins weave
nests under the eaves
The woodpecker sculpts
a nave
The eagle takes crags
none others desire
and storks in chimneys
find homes

Tunnels the gopher
before resting in loafers
The raccoon takes a branch in
a tree
The bear in winter lives in a cave
but the cuckoo bird steals others' home

=========================

There are many who pray for all beings. This would include
the current resident of the White House. But he was not elected
in 2000, nor was he elected in 2004.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
