Everlasting Fall


I jumped out with a parachute
Without a hope in hell
Of pulling my there ripcord-
It was to no avail.
No matter how hard I tried
It scared me half to death
I wish I'd never left the plane
Where I was so warm and safe
But then I would not have known
What it was like to fall
Ever faster to the ground
Without my parachute to break my fall

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
