From The Shore


A lone gray bird,
Dim-dipping, far-flying,
Alone in the shadows and grandeurs and tumults

    He chose nice descriptive words:
    Alone in the shadows and grandeurs and tumults, rapture of flight, eager and palpitant wings
    The only thing that really, really bothers me about modern poetry is that the poets don't rhyme. That's just personal preference. I think a poem flows so much better when the lines rhyme. This poem got a 6.2 with 75 votes. With his beautiful, descriptive words if he'd have made this rhyme I think the score would be much higher! What do modern poets have against rhyming anyway? ?

    Magnificent imagery; painted complete scene of chance, love, death, eagerness...
    Wonderful! (Report) Reply

That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
