A falling leaf is the loneliest thing God has ever created,
Neither a poet like me nor anybody can put into words, so exaggerated,
For a falling leaf's loneliness is immeasurable...
Not an ode could possibly define it-if able,
For a falling leaf is the loneliest thing God has ever created.

    Stunning special effects again, Geovanni!
    But you do yourself a disservice by relying on the visual
    as opposed to the poetical!
    There are poets who have defined in words the essence
    of a thing, manmade or natural. Check out the poem
    entitled *Spring and Fall* by Gerard Manley Hopkins-
    'Leaves, like the things of man, you /With your fresh
    thoughts care for, can you? '
    Read *Ode to a Grecian Urn* by John Keats -
    'Sylvan historian, who canst thus express /A flowery
    tale more sweetly than our rime...' (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
