LORD of CHANCE


Two roads diverge in a yellow wood,
definitely I must do what I should,
the woods hum in a hopeless mood,
hungry but needless of food.

After every road lies a difference,
I know that with no pretence,
one must come, the fill or the absence,
so waiting is of no essence.

Though laying long before me is lofty ignorance,
yet action is the Lord of Chance.

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
