Elyse Winne


Slithering along


Slithering along,
Gripping the ground.
Searching everywhere,
Searching all around.
The slits, in its eyes,
As thin as a crescent moon.
Not searching for;
The altering boon.
Look! It's found prey,
Soon will it raze.
But the prey has evaded it,
And may it be the serpent's bane.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
