For Jackie


When she was young
On a white stallion she would run

Then she saw the black
And thought for awhile

The run on him did make her smile

I, m going to get away
She thought on the black

Six guns roaring
In a desert storm

The black it did run
Splendor was his form
Into the sun he ran

Now she runs night and day
Some see her
So they say.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
