Greats (Limerick)


I will be as cool as Frost
And like Maya I will rise,
Brush aside Poe's morbid ghost,
I have yet to reach my prize.

There'll be some 'ifs' like Kiplings
Touching trees much like Kilmer,
But I will always write of things
Just like Whittier's 'Maud Muller'.

Bask in freedom like Emerson
Before Longfellow's 'Day is Done'
Work hard like 'Man with the Hoe'
Then 'Cross the Bar' like Tennyson.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
