Green Peace


The golfer stands upon the green
with putter in his hand,
the flag is waving in the breeze -
he's made it past the sand;
He checks the slope and calculates
the distance to the cup,
assumes the stance, remembering......
look at the ball, not up;
It's not that far, a piece of cake
to sink it in the hole,
a practice swing, a gentle tap,
the ball begins to roll
gently forward, now it curves
along the emerald grass,
but will it drop into that little
hole......you bet your ass!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
