THE UNFATHOMABLE SEA


The unfathomable sea has a story
Secrets are kept in the heart of it
Many wish to go deeper
But those who dared always failed.


Such is the depth of the human mind
We try to get close but never enough, quite
One time it’s as serene as the waters nearby
Then it becomes a raging water we can not survive.


You can never tell the workings of the mind
What a hideous character that a respectable face may hide
The innocent eyes may keep a box full of mischief
And the sweetest tongue may profess a different belief.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
