Abdul Wahab


Static Earth


Turn back the hands of the clock
Pull them so much that they enter into an age
And fall upon a piece of land
Where people still think
That the sun moves around
And the earth is flat and static
Where people may be unscientific
Backward, awkward or primitive
But their society is free from evils
As they do not need powers of money or muscle
I prefer to live among them
As I hate those powers to spin my world.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
