Like Life


It amazes me how it can work
so perfectly
and naturally
How sometimes rhymes come
as if pre-designed
And the rhythm of the words
Like a flock of birds
One leads and the others follow
Without question

It amazes me how it can work
so poignantly
To describe the undefined
Like eternity

It amazes me how it can work
so beautifully
And mysteriously
Like life

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
