  • Is It Poetry (8/6/2009 4:39:00 AM)

    The wording is more
    than a wee bit of pleasure..
    Worry about that gave..
    unless you are from that trade..
    Passion lays in trust..
    Once the seal is broken..from
    the back of both the books.. (Report) Reply

    why should i delet my message? SO tell me what will you do if I don't? What's the matter-can't you take criticism? That is sad. You must have all had it too easy. I have schizophrenia- what is YOUR excuse? ? ? (Report) Reply

    This poem is poem of the month? Whoever decided that doesn't know his butt from a hole in the wall....Other than in the dumpster, I guess this poem could pass as the message inside a Hallmark card...sing songy and trite- at best...

    Let's see, the first time...''twas pleasure that made it an oath.' Is there anything in the poem that indicates it would be different in the future? Don't the fires always burn in the beginning? (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
