Sister in-law


Every days and nights,
She walks up and down-
Past corn fields
Her flip-flops,
Fluttering as
A nightly bird

In my home,
She invites herself
As if my book shelf
Belongs to her and me
She deserves no blame
For she is like one without shame
But, how can she understand
When her age's reluctant to slow
And unwilling to quit her mother's breasts?
My beautiful home,
My beautiful estate
Can not be divided
Just like one'shusband.

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.
