Life, -A Dark Maiden


Life, -a dark maiden; she is far from fair
With long a leg, yet short the same
Sometimes she crawls, sometimes she runs like hare
Or a game.

She comes in pairs, she's the worst and the best
She might smile, she might cry the same
Her pride glows from the east but on the west
Lies her shame.

The seasons brings her fate, pale and pretty
She has bright and dull on her name
Life is ne'er fair, but she is a beauty
All the same.

    A wonderful exploit of paradox and syllepsis to embellish the nature of life. Keep it up! I invite you to read my poem 'Noh-geh-ria, a spirited song'. Thank you (Report) Reply

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
