On Cars


ON CARS

Seated in a tram Through a window
One can feast one's eyes On a passing show

Of cars designed With style in mind
Some stand out more Than others you find

There's a Mercedes Twenty years old
Still distinctive To behold

That holds its shape Like a Jaguar
Another example Of a prestige car

A Rolls Royce cruises Stately by
It's not very often I do them spy

Motor-bikes too I like to see
There goes a racy Kawasaki

But I'm not too fussy I can be
Pleased to pass A Ford Falcon taxi.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
