Headlines


'Oh, did you read,
The headlines today? '
The public was aghast,
With the news.

'Oh, did you read,
The headlines today? '
The public was delighted,
With the news.

The headlines read today,
About tornadoes, winds and lightning.
All the newspapers and stands,
Were whirling and shattering.

Today the newspapers weren't selling.
But the newspapers were telling,
Their story of that moment.
A story of environmental horror.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
