On The Political Podium


In our ears
The sound of music
The singers sing on
From stages up high
Their voices echoing in our heads
The drummers drum on
A boost for the singers to sing on
Excitement fills the atmosphere
The dancers move to the rhythm
The rhythm that foretold the coming of a new day
A day full of hope
Hope for the end of despair
The despair that the people feel
Tears will be replaced by smiles
Yet to the child the drums’ beats
And to the adult the singers’ lyrics

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
