On a night so profound as This I open a Book


I blow smoke
to the tuesday
night crawlers
on this night
not all together
profound...
Dressed to party
the triplets
always in triplets
Dressed to erect
Dressed to connect,
with switchboard
for action.
Dressed up only on nights like tonight
no doubt trying to defeat and chase away
their shadows of a droll day
Dressed for battle.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
