Mere verse.


Imagination is but a river, curving through a plain
Slipping and sliding, dancing and gliding
Through mountains and terrain!
Changing, changing, changing.

Tactfulness is but a veil, lies cast over truth,
Wending and smiling, bending and fighting,
To weaken pain, they call it Ruth.
But failing, failing, failing.

Smiles are but boomerangs, presents that liven,
Faces to faces, places to places.
Smiles weak, strong and constantly given.
Flying, flying, flying.

Dreams are but flames, clutching your soul tight.
Soaring with hopes, casting away mopes,
Living with you, from trails of dawns to night.
Burning, burning, burning.

Verses are but fades, fades of emotion.
Anger to might, happiness to flight.
So strong that mere words cannot put into motion.
Singing, singing, singing.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
