That Lonesome Word - Poem by Joyce Hemsley


As far as the eye can see
no other word in our vocabulary
begins with letters p-o-v.
The word stands all alone
calling for our sympathy,
humanity, love and charity.
Let us hope this lonely word
will soon be swept into history.

    Very nice use of diction and pose. The entire poem is a delight. Never stop the flow of your literary art.
